Here’s what Liam Payne originally wanted his son’s name to be

London [UK], May 18 : Liam Payne, who welcomed his first child with his girlfriend Cheryl Cole in March, has revealed that his baby boy Bear was almost given the same name as a legendary king.

Speaking on the U.K.'s Kiss FM radio station, the 23-year-old singer said "I actually wanted Arthur. I think you sound like a bit of a tank-Arthur Payne. He's not a guy you'd mess around with," adding "I don't think Bear is either, though," the Belfast Telegraph reported.

He added that the former Girls Aloud star "wanted a very interesting name, when he leaves a room people wouldn't forget it." During the interview, Payne also talked about his life as a new dad amid his new solo career.

The singer, who has been busy promoting his new single 'Strip That Down,' is also preparing to go on a tour.
