Which do you prefer?

At a push, Dexter. But tbh I really don't like either.

I'm not a fan of either - sorry.

Dexter if I had to choose, but I don't like either tbh.

I do like Sam, but not Samson.

I like Oscar, but not the other two, sorry.

DramaAlpaca Mon 17-Mar-14 22:40:36

Oscar is better than the other two.

Oscar my favourite of those three ��

Samson is great, a classic Biblical name, and Sam for short is nice. Makes a change from Samuel too.

Dexter is too surnamey IMHO.

LOVE Samson. And it doesn't need to become Sam either.

Dexter for a dog
Samson for a bigger dog!
I really like the name Oscar though.

Oscar for a cat.

I love Samson, what a great name! Biblical but more interesting than the snoozefests that are Noah and Jacob.

Dexter is such a very smug name though.

Oscar, then Samson, Dexter last. Dexter really not at all but then plenty of people seem to like the surnames as forenames trend. What makes you happy?

CaipirinhasAllRound Tue 18-Mar-14 07:43:34

Like both Dexter and Samson, would prob go with Dexter first.

Heard someone on the radio who had a Woody and a Samson, Woody is cute

Not Oscar, done to death

PunkAssMoFo Tue 18-Mar-14 07:46:56

Too many oscars.
Otherwise two are great names, but I'd probably go for Samson.

Treaclepot Tue 18-Mar-14 07:53:36

I know about 8 little oscars, for some reason it makes me cringe a bit. Think it will date very much, a bit like Jason. Similar to Dexter.

Prefer Samson.

BirthdayMuppet Tue 18-Mar-14 11:00:14

Oscar by far the best of your suggestions, but so over used round here. Bit faddy and will date.

Gambia Tue 18-Mar-14 11:24:29

Really like Samson. Also like Dexter too, but have a soft spot for Samson!

TheArticFunky Tue 18-Mar-14 12:11:16

Dexter 8/10
Oscar 4/10
Samson 2/10

SS3J Tue 18-Mar-14 12:59:44

I don't like Oscar at all. Dexter I quite like, Samson is ok.

I like Dexter best although it makes me think of Dexter Morgan.
