Welcome to #Namemas, a collaborative name celebration and Christmas Countdown.

On the 8th day of Namemas TulipbyAnyName gave to me the baby name Arthur.

Arthur Claus is the main character, voiced by James McAvoy, in the sweet animated film Arthur Christmas.

Arthur is a strong classic name that that fits in well with the old-is-new again trend of names making a comeback.  Currently ranked at Number 292 in popularity, Arthur has steadily been on the rise the past 15 years.  Arthur has a strong and manly sound, in large due to the association of Arthurian legend.  Arthur is a Celtic name meaning bear, how cute is that? If you like the idea of Arthur you may also like its international variations – Spanish and Italian Arturo, Scottish Artair, or Artur used in a range of countries from Germany to Romania.

What do you think of the name Arthur? Hear my thoughts below:
