Arthur
Arthur is a very common Welsh masculine given name. Its etymology is disputed, but its popularity derives from it being the name of the legendary hero King Arthur. Diminutive forms of the name include Art and Artie. A common spelling variant used in many Slavic, Romance, and Germanic languages is Artur. Etymology The earliest datable attestation of the name Arthur is in the early 9th century Welsh-Latin text ''Historia Brittonum'', where it refers to a circa 5th to 6th-century Briton general who fought against the invading Saxons, and who later gave rise to the famous King Arthur of medieval legend and literature.

A 9th-century Breton landowner named Arthur witnessed several charters collected i ...
