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?

No, Oscar's a lovely name.

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!!

I wouldnt let it put me off.

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.

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

Lets just hope baby Oscar appears on time!

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.

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

No, not at all - go for it! x

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

Xmasbaby11 Fri 05-Jul-13 21:50:11

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

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!

grin @ your kid will outlive the dog.

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

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

No. Oscar is better as a boy name.
