Original nickname for Arthur. I also like Artie.

I know some people called this. It is not a unique name at all, it’s a quite used name because I know 9 other Arts.

I like Art for a full first name. I actually prefer it more for a girl, though.

Wouldn't use this as a nickname and I definitely wouldn't use this as a first name.

In 2018, 49 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Art* who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 3459th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

I like this as a nickname, I just don't care for the name, "Arthur".

This name is also used in The Netherlands. There, it can also be a short form of Arthur, but it is more often a short form for Arnout or a variant form of Aart.

I suppose it's a nice enough nickname of Arthur, but I don't think it ought to be used as a name on it's own.
Pippin  5/8/2008
Also used in Ireland.

When I hear this name, I always imagine an old man. I wish I didn't, because otherwise I love that it's the short form of Arthur and the same as the word 'art'.

When you think of the 'name' Art, all you can think of is painting and stuff like that.

Singer Art Garfunkel bears this name. Rather would be clasified for his hairstyle than his music.
