Not sure where this one has come from but it suddenly occured to me the other night. DH doesn't like it so probably wouldn't get my way and I do worry it sounds like a dog's name.

any thoughts?

Osbert on the other hand wink

oh you're right Sandy4, i'd forgotten that baby on eastenders was called Oscar. Mind you it's ever such a good baby - you never hear a peep out of it

sandy4 Mon 28-Jul-08 15:19:10

that's right & those gold statues are also very quiet. i think its a winner grin

I quite like Oscar as a name.

KaySamuels Mon 28-Jul-08 17:11:32

my sis just called her baby oscar, I like it smile

didn't know there was one in eastenders don't watch it.

Ds 2 has it as his middle name - he just didnt look like an Oscar when he was born but I really liked it so kept it as his middle nema - I like it! smile

I have an Oscar and truly love it, don't watch EastEnders! Quite original but not too outlandish in my opinion

have a gorgeous little friend (he is 3!) called Oscar. suits him perfectly

MingMingtheWonderPet Mon 28-Jul-08 18:08:50

I love it!

LynetteScavo Mon 28-Jul-08 18:12:44

I love it wink

Becoming very popular though <<sigh>>

notasheep Mon 28-Jul-08 18:19:37

A dogs name or a film awardgrin

hw2004 Mon 28-Jul-08 18:55:32

yes notasheep, i have worried about it being a dog's name. However, DH won't let me have Toby as he thinks it's a cats name - sigh!

I know a totally scrummy Oscar, we call him Osky..... he is the most wonderful little boy you could hope to meet.

hw2004 Mon 28-Jul-08 19:00:18

Now how do i go about convincing DH? Hmmmm.......

SquonkWalton Mon 28-Jul-08 19:00:37

I love it, love it, love it.

Twatty dp wouldn't let me have it for ds though. I forget his reasoning but stupidly I listened to him (well, not stupidly, ds's name is lovely... it's just not Oscar)

mamalovesmojitos Mon 28-Jul-08 20:59:28

dont like it - sorry! blush. though it is very popular so i'm probably in the minority.

CakeForSanitysSake Mon 28-Jul-08 21:01:48

I have a dog called Oscar, but still love the name though.
Love Toby as well - was on my list of names, but wasn't liked by anyone else!

There was a baby Oscar in Neighbours as well. Ozzie, from Aussie!

I love this name...wanted to call ds this but dp put his foot down and refused...still wish i'd used it as a middle name though.
