Macarthur as a first name?

Knowing that I love surname-y names as a first name, I would like to know your guys’ input on using a name like Macarthur as a first. Is it weird? Or maybe it’s better as a MN?

I think it could work! So many nickname options too!

I do think it’s weird, and I immediately think of [name_u]Douglas[/name_u] MacArthur, so it strikes me as militaristic.

I like it. He could go by [name_m]Mac[/name_m], [name_u]Arthur[/name_u], [name_m]Arturo[/name_m], [name_m]Art[/name_m], Artie…

I would honestly wonder why just [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] wasn’t good enough

[name_u]Macarthur[/name_u] would work as a honoring name hehe but I see what you mean
[name_u]Arthur[/name_u] by itself lacks something to me, I like longer names

I like it and think it could work! Whenever I hear an obvious surname name, I wonder if it is a family name of some sort. While it isn’t a common first name, I’d probably just think this was the case and wouldn’t find it weird.
