Hello everyone,

Our favourite names are Kacper and Oskar. We have decided on the middle name Maksymilian smile

Which do you prefer: Kacper Maksymilian or Oskar Maksymilian?

Thank you x

QuestionableMouse Wed 15-Mar-17 00:57:37

neither sorry.

They all sound like best in show at Crufts. How do you pronounce kacper?

HelloEngland Wed 15-Mar-17 01:01:28

@QuestionableMouse - sorry?

It's really hard to explain how it's pronounced (due to the accent) but this is good: smile

Are you Polish?

Kacper I assume is the same name as Kasper. In which case Kacper Maksymillian.

HelloEngland Wed 15-Mar-17 01:04:37

@SaudadeObama - yes smile

It is pronounced slightly different, but that's all. Thank you!

i prefer the kacper maksymilian combination.

I love them both. (Sorry unhelpful!)

SchnitzelVonCrumb Wed 15-Mar-17 01:56:11

I really like them both - I didn't know that was the Polish spelling.

I think if the baby is going to be living in the UK people will assume it's a misspelling. I have a name that is correct in another country and constantly misspelled so I know what it's like.

Regardless I prefer Oskar.

We have v similar taste! I love both options, though I know that doesn't help you choose!

I'd say Oskar Maksymilian narrowly wins it for me, mainly because of similarities to our son's name grin

Jooni Wed 15-Mar-17 06:57:07

Both gorgeous! I vote Oskar but only just.

Oskar, as people will know how to pronounce it. It could be pretty annoying to hear Cack-per for the 1000th time.

Newtssuitcase Wed 15-Mar-17 09:25:11

Kacper will be pronounced by 99% of Brits as "Kack - per". Given that Cack means poo I would avoid that.

mum2be2boys Wed 15-Mar-17 11:06:35

Both nice names. I think I prefer Oscar :-)

EssentialHummus Wed 15-Mar-17 11:11:31

Kacper will be pronounced by 99% of Brits as "Kack - per". Given that Cack means poo I would avoid that.

This, unfortunately.

I prefer Oskar.

I know a Polish Oskar whose nickname sounds like Oskee. He's a gorgeous boy so perhaps I'm biased but I'd choose Oskar.

DramaAlpaca Wed 15-Mar-17 11:13:45

Oskar will be much easier for British people to say.

Grindelwaldswand Wed 15-Mar-17 11:16:02

Both sound lovely OP sorry for all the racist views on here we aren't all like that and obviously Kacper is pronounced as Kasper and Maxsymilian as Maximilian which are both normal names here smile i have a lot of Polish friends so im familiar.

MyBreadIsEggy Wed 15-Mar-17 11:17:14

Oskar Maksymilian smile

My cousin's name is Maksymilian, so I couldn't use it for my DS sad

Newtssuitcase Wed 15-Mar-17 11:18:14

Erm where exactly are there any racist views on this thread. hmm I take great offence at that if you are referring to my comment.

It is not racist in any way to point out that in this country there will be mispronunciations of the name Kacper which have very negative connotations.

Grindelwaldswand Wed 15-Mar-17 11:19:55

It doesn't matter what you want it's what the OP wants! hmm so selfish

Newtssuitcase Wed 15-Mar-17 11:20:59

I don't want anything! Am how exactly am I selfish?

Some people are quite astonishing.

Grindelwaldswand Wed 15-Mar-17 11:21:39

Ive never heard of the word "Cack" being used and if you can't pronounce those name's you must be illiterate. There are so many horrible snarky replies on here it makes me ashamed to be British. Disgusting people hiding behind your keyboards
