Oscar Wilde! Human (and dog)

But the same can be said for Sadie, Susie, Lucy

My friend's ds is called Oscar - he's just turned two...... But we had a dog called Oscar so for me, it's still a dog's name!

Literally been having this conversation just now with DH!!! It was top of my boys list in 2011 but we had a girl. Due a boy next week and had decided against it this time due to popularity and the fact my cousin had a dog when we were growing up called Oscar. But at the last minute I'm reconsidering it!!!! I'm not too worried about the dog association, it's more the popularity which I was set on avoiding...

By all accounts popular for both.

BathshebaDarkstone Tue 02-Jun-15 22:46:23

Either/or. Sorry, not helpful! blush

There's loads. Two in a class. As popular as Finlay / Finley.

But the current trend for pets names is human sounding names so many names could be either, really.

Milly, Penny, Alfie, Toby and Molly...are they the names of children I know or the names of family pets?

My husband and I have had to think long and hard about names for our baby to avoid "three dogs or three daughters?" confusion grin

I know 4.

I know one who's 3 and one who's 33. There's also Oscar the footballer who I believe, is 23. What is it with all these threes!

My first thought was pet - specifically, cat. Then Oscar Wilde of but not a modern's in now though? confused you learn something every day.

Human (or grouchy muppet)
But it's popular - England and Wales ranked 17th in 2012 and 7th in 2013, so on the rise too.

Either. I like it.

2boys2girls Wed 03-Jun-15 02:41:20

Cat or human ... Lots of both running about

BeautifulStars93 Wed 03-Jun-15 05:17:58

I only know one Finley too x
