Do you like it? Does is go OK with Harry (DS1)? Any middle name suggestions?

PS We know it's popular but it's the only one we both like & let's face it, Harry's hardly unique grin

I love Oscar. I love Harry too! grin

Personally, I like middle names to have a family connection... My DS's middle name is after my Grandad.

Goes very well. I know 2 Oscars. Both lovely boys,but my granny had a smelly old cat called Oscar and I'm afraid I can't get beyond that.

I think Harry and Oscar go beautifully together.
I agree with Haribo - do you have any family names you could use?

If not how about

Oscar Stanley
Oscar Gregory
Oscar Jude
Oscar Henry
Oscar Graham
Oscar James

The poor child will actually have 2 middle names and the 2nd is an (odd) family name so we'd rather just find a 1st middle name we like for aesthetic/poetic reasons!

Love it!

I like George as a middle name, and Henry.

we have an Oscar smile
he has a family type name for a middle name but I think most manes go with it for a second name

We have an Oscar Dennis

Also considered
Oscar Gabe
Oscar Travis
Oscar Jules

Looking back he probably got off lightly grin

I like Oscar, and love Harry, sound great together.

For middle names I like...

I love it! It's on our shortlist too for ds due soon. I too like middle names with a family connection. Otherwise how about...

Oscar Ross
Oscar Reuben

LOVE Oscar, it was our number one choice if DD was going to be a boy... we were going to go with Oscar Gabriel.

I adore Oscar. My DS was nearly, nearly called it but it had gone to someone else

MarshaBrady Fri 19-Jun-09 16:55:04

Yes it is very cute, and goes very well with Harry.

I wanted Oscar Laszlo (my FIL's name) but was not allowed!
