Registering DS2 on thursday and still undecided on middle name for Oscar.
It's my turn to have family name choice as DS1 has DP's grandfather's name as middle name.

My favourite is Louis and am still trying to persuade DP. Initially thought it was a complete veto, but think there might be a glimmer of hope so will remind him a few more times it is my 1st choice.

2nd choice is Laurence (my favourite (late) great Uncle)

3rd choice is Lewis, my grandmother's maiden name. I'm not terribly keen on it as a name, hence why I think Louis would be perfect as it's a lovely name and also represents family name enough for my Grandma to be suitably thrilled.

Votes welcome for

Oscar Louis

Oscar Laurence

Oscar Lewis

Oscar Louis is definitely the best IMO. It has a lovely sound to it, beautiful.

Oscar Lawrence is my second favourite, it's really nice but more serious / formal-sounding.

Oscar Lewis is nice.

I think Oscar Louis is best (as in the middle there isn't really the possibility of small boys turning it into Loo-y).

Laurence would be my second choice. I don't like Lewis.
