By the way, definitely not Elliott.

Thanks smile

Elliot, because I always hear Tricia Penrose of Heartbeat saying "Os-kare!!" in my head. But that may just be me.

100% Oscar!

Definitely prefer Elliot - the dragon from Pete's Dragon is called Elliot.

Think you're going to get a 50/50 split here!

I like them both but prefer Elliot (I may be biased...wink)

If DD had been a boy we were going to name her Oscar Elliot smile

Elliot. I am biased though. Love the name and named my oldest son that (in 1996) after our first date was to see ET back in 1983!

@geneveve what's the point?

geneveve Sat 23-Sep-17 19:47:27

Just my opinion

geneveve Sat 23-Sep-17 19:47:59

Just my opinion. Op asked.

TurquoiseChevrotain Sat 23-Sep-17 19:51:37

But they really didn't, did they? They asked which one of the 2. It's like replying Joseph...

geneveve Sat 23-Sep-17 19:56:18

Then Joseph. I prefer thatsmile

TurquoiseChevrotain Sat 23-Sep-17 20:02:26

That's says it all. You're missing the point. It's a completely irrelevant reply.

Smelliot would have few friends... grin

Elliot is much nicer

Montsti Sun 24-Sep-17 07:09:28

I like both but Elliot sounds a little wet (sorry) so I would go with Oscar...

howthelightgetsin Sun 24-Sep-17 07:31:04

I have an irrational hatred of the name Elliot.


Normandy144 Sun 24-Sep-17 07:33:39

Much prefer Elliot. Oscar feels like a name that will date easily to me.

ladybirdsaredotty Sun 24-Sep-17 11:27:31

Oscar is on our list for this baby but I'm worried about popularity. Elliot(t 😉) would be too but it's too close to DD2's name. I probably like it best of the two, though ☺
