DS2 is a week old...

Which do you prefer?

I think that they both 'suit' him, but not sure which one is a better fit!

I like reuben better but they're both decent names.

Oscar (but both good names)

I can give you two other names to choose from if you like cat names!

Oscar and Reuben are my last two boy cats.

I like both equally. They're both on my list. smile

I'd probably choose Reuben because it's less popular here. But, if MN is anything to go by, I think it's due a rapid increase in popularity soon.

Tond my eldest DS has a friend and both his cats had the same names as my other DC !!!! Funnily enough one is Oscar... The other is Cleo !

Obviously I prefer Oscar .... But I know a Reuben and he's a right shit handful.

Both lovely but Reuben is more classic and less trendy I think.

Reuben is more unusual in my area as don't know any and know quite a few little Oscar's! I think it has a nicer sound aswell and better nicknames...?

I like both a lot, but Reuben edges it for me. They're both very cool names though.
