Opinions on boy names

Ethan Arthur jackson

Grant Arthur jackson

My husbands fav is Ethan and I like it but it is pretty popular right now, but we do not know any Ethan's.

I really like grant, but I am worried about haw people will say it.  I find either they over pronunciate the t or it sounds like they are saying gran.

Arthur comes from my grandfather so I would love to use that as a mn and the last name is close to Jackson so you get the full idea.

We are not Shari g with family yet so I wanted some honest opinions.

Any other suggestions are appreciated.

    I prefer Grant with Arthur. The repeated vowel + TH of Ethan Arthur doesn't flow as well. Plus, I just like Grant more. Now, my favorite name of the bunch is Arthur. I would put it in the FN spot and go with Arthur Grant

    I agree.


  • I wouldn't use Arthur as a first name bc I despise the nn "Artie." I like both Ethan and Grant.

  • I prefer Grant with Arthur. Ethan Arthur is a mouthful in my opinion...probably because of the almost back-to-back "th" sounds.

    I agree with people that Ethan Arthur is a mouthful. Plus, like you said, it's quite popular. I really like Arthur Grant better...

  • Grant by a mile.  I feel like Ethan is everywhere.
  • I don't like the way Ethan sounds with Arthur, and it reminds me of Ethan Allen. I really like Grant Arthur though!
  • Grant! Ethan Arthur Jackson is toooo much going on. and I feel that Ethan and Arthur sound too much like each other

  • I like Ethan a lot even though it's very popular. That said, Grant sounds better with Arthur IMO.

    GL choosing!
