Subject:        Arthur

Somewhat indirectly related to *King John* is the question of why Arthur
has that name. Everybody else has something either Biblical or
Frenchified Germanic. Granted that this was the heyday of Matter of
Britain romances, but the name seems to come out of left field.

Anyone out there know?

Thanks,
Don
