No. Oscar is better as a boy name.

If it's a friend not family owning the dog I'd not worry.

Oscar is everywhere right now, they probably out number the many dogs called it nowadays.

No. it's fine. My friend on the other hand called her son Jake and within two months of his birth, their other friends got a dog and called him Jake! Caused a bit of bitterness I can tell thee!

It's a very popular name (for boys), not only dogs! No, it wouldn't bother me.

Who calls a dog Oscar? Wierdos. Perfectly sensible name for a child though.

No, it's a lovely name smile

No, not at all - go for it! x

Love it, love it, love it! I also love Milo and know a dog with that name. Wouldn't put me off. DH vetoed though sad

Nope. I have a Barnaby and I cannot tell you how many dogs called Barney I have since come across. Doesn't bother me at all.

Thanks for the replies. Has made me feel much better about it smile
Lets just hope baby Oscar appears on time!

No - Oscar is a widely used name for both dogs and boys! Keep it smile

No - apparently my son's name is the one of the most 'favourite' dogs' names (didn't know such lists existed grin) - doesn't put me off at all, but I don't have anything much to do with the dog world and none of my close friends/family have dogs.

I wouldnt let it put me off.

My instinct is no, but I like the name Mollie and friends of ours have just used that for a pet and it has put me off a bit. It shouldn't though, and Oscar is cool!!

love it my oscar is half asleep mid feed at the moment. smile

AllegraLilac Tue 02-Jul-13 01:58:56

Nah. Your kid will outlive that dog.

No.

quertas Mon 01-Jul-13 20:18:48

No, Oscar's a lovely name.

ABitLesMis Mon 01-Jul-13 20:18:01

Finally decided on name for DS2 due any day....Oscar.

Someone I know got a puppy at the weekend and has named him Oscar.

Would this bother you or make you reconsider?
