This name's not 'taken', right?
Arthur has been my top pick for a little while if my baby due in June turns out to be a boy. A couple I know just had their baby and named him Arthur. I see them 8-10 times a year -- think book club -- and don't see them outside of that. Knowing their older boys, they will use the full name whereas I'm fine using a nickname, especially if both boys attend the meetings. A couple of friends in the group seem to assume that Arthur is "off limits" now, but I don't see a problem. I don't see the two families every really socializing or becoming friends outside the book club. What do you think?
Of course, baby could turn out to be Ruth instead, but I'd like to have names lined up this time for either eventuality.
