I have an oscar and I have a friend who has an oscar and a poppy! Our oscars are 11/12 now. It wasmt very popular whenwe chose it but has got more popular tho has dropped back down the charts again.

I like both names smile

I like Oscar. Not really keen on Poppy.

Poppy is nice.

I don't like oscar at all, sorry.

I don't like Oscar/Ossie at all.

Poppy is cute for a little girl, but I'm not sure I'd want to be called Poppy as an adult. Bit cutesy like Poppet.

Both really ordinary unoriginal names nowadays

Both nice names, fairly popular if that doesn't bother you.

I like Oscar although its current popularity would put me off.

Poppy is a bit too babyish and girlie for me.

CPtart Mon 31-Mar-14 14:23:17

Oscar is ok.
Despise Poppy.

alita7 Mon 31-Mar-14 14:26:25

For an adult Poppy I think of actress Poppy Montgomery. I think there are lots of girly names like Poppy,Daisy etc but this is true of past generational names which grow with the person. I like it as a sole classic happy sounding name.
Love Oscar too, again classic but fun sounding name.

Both nice but both extremely popular. You'll be forever turning your head to it being yelled by someone else in a public place!

Both are lovely names. smile

But I suspect both names might be the kind to become popular, and then fade again, like Steven/Sarah in the 70's.

both are lovely. poppy actually has a really good "soul meaning" if you look it up. obviously it just literally means flower but if you look up spiritual name association it says that poppy's usually grow up to be very lovely and important strong women indeed

There's a set of twins in our baby group called Oscar & Poppy.
