Like Arthur but less popular?

I love the name [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]. It’s vintage “grandpa-chic” plus the added bonus of the connection to [name_m]King[/name_m] [name_m]Arthur[/name_m].

Unfortunately, it’s popularity has skyrocketed over here in the UK, it’s at number 7 now and I think it could even be number 1 in a few years. It seems like everywhere you look there’s a baby [name_m]Arthur[/name_m].

This is where I come to you. What names do you think evoke the same feelings as [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], without the super-popularity? It can be a similar sound, or just the same kind of vibe.

[name_f]Tia[/name_f]!

Some names that come to mind:
[name_m]Archer[/name_m] (although this one might get more popular because of [name_m]Archie[/name_m])
[name_m]Edwin[/name_m]
[name_u]Stanley[/name_u]
[name_m]Roger[/name_m]
[name_m]Walter[/name_m]
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m]
[name_m]Ralph[/name_m]
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u]
