Pobarth /póbɑ̀rθ/ (male)
We’ve known for years that Garth is a painfully blunt and ugly name, which is why its popularity has dropped to near zero since the arrival of the new millennium. Pobarth, on the other hand, with its air of film-noir mystery and vintage masculinity, has — at the very least — saved the “arth” from complete extinction. The first syllable is the real hero here, taking what might otherwise be a forgettable name straight into the history books with both elegance and drama.
“Pobarth has some nerve.”
