What does the baby name Arthur mean?

The name Arthur means bear and is of Welsh origin. 

Arthur is a traditional name with a long history of use in the royal family. One of Prince William’s middle names is Arthur, and Prince Louis also counts Arthur as a middle name. 

It’s also the name of King Arthur – the legendary monarch whose story grew from folklore dating back to the 5th century.  

The name Arthur has grown in popularity in recent years, thanks in part to the love for traditional baby names and the TV show Peaky Blinders.  

It is among the top 10 most used boy names, according to the most recent baby name data from ONS.

What middle names go well with Arthur?

The name Arthur goes well with very traditional and old-fashioned names such as Samuel or William, but can also be made modern when combined with an unusual middle name such as Wren or Cosmo. 

I personally love the Max combinations with Arthur – for example Arthur Maxwell, Arthur Maxim, Arthur Max. 

If you will be shortening your baby’s name to Art or Artie for example then it’s worth considering middle names that may work best with that. 

Arthur is one of the most flexible first names, thanks to the soft “r” sound that it ends on, so you’re pretty spoilt for choice when it comes to middle names! 

I hope this list of over 150 middle name ideas for Arthur helps you with your decision.
