Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Arthur A name of uncertain meaning and origin. Most commonly associated with the main character of Arthurian legend.
Harold Popularly known by this before English release.
Japanese ハロルド From the Old English name Hereweald, derived from the elements here "army" and weald "power, leader, ruler".[2] With the emphasis on bad luck, he may be named specifically after Harold II, who was known for being very unlucky.


  • Arthur shares his English name with a character from Genealogy of the Holy War. His name is also very similar to that of Artur from The Sacred Stones.
  • Arthur's belt buckle has an "H" on it, this is presumably in reference to his Japanese name "Harold", though his clothing was not changed in localization. In his S support with a female Corrin, Arthur reveals that the "H" stands for "hero".
