Axel is the best but not my sort of thing.

I really like Arthur.
The other two I really, really dislike.

I really like Arthur, and nn arty.
Can’t warm to Axel.
I know of an Artus. I think if it’s pronounced as his name is, it’s not so bad (emphasis on ‘ooss’ rather this ‘us’?). But even then I think Arthur is much nicer.

I wouldn’t go with Artus. He will be called Artus Fartus his whole life.

Great feedback, thanks very much. I guess I’m looking for a traditional name that’s not too common these days. Thanks also for the alternative names 😊

Not a fan of any sorry.
Much prefer Alexander (nn Alex).

Sorry not a fan of any of your names. Arthur is the best I guess . Axel if you want to name your other boys Diesel and Bear

I don't mind Arthur.
I prefer Alisdair/Alistair, Ambrose or Atticus

I wouldnt call Axel a traditional name or Artus
That depends on background. They're both very old and not uncommon names in different parts of Europe.

I like Arthur a lot. I would use Archie for short.
I also adore Asher.

Thanks again all, this naming gig is hard! I’m really fussy too which doesn’t help.
I’ve come across another one, another Scandinavian name- Stellan -thoughts?

So you've moved away from "A" I don't mind Stellan.
Some of my favourite Nordic names are Carsten, Torben and Torsten.
