Thread Name: BS: Origin of Mudcat Nicknames
Subject: RE: BS: Origin of Mudcat Nicknames
Dubliners have a tendency to add an 'o' at the end of shortended first names - Anto, Micko, Deco, that sort of thing. Shorten Arthur to Art, add the 'o', put it into Dublin pronunciation and you will find that I'm using my real name after all.

Arthur (also an O'Malley, but not of the Crunchie persuasion)
