Longer name with nickname Ozzy

Hi all,
I love the name Ozzy for a boy, but would potentially want a longer name for it. Love Oscar but know too many to use.
Any ideas welcome, in addition to names I would like that are maybe similar.
Current boy names I like:
Dexter
Hugo
Navy
Arlen
August
Sage

I really like August from your list though. I only know one Sage and it is a girl.

I love the name Austin. There is a mum at our baby group whose baby is just called Ozzy, not short for anything. It suits him.

I didn’t know people name their child based on a nickname before I joined MN. I always thought you name your child what you want and then a nickname comes along naturally!

<completely misses the point>

I really like the nn Oggie for August, like the kid in Wonder.

Or Oswin for Ozzy if you don't want Oscar.

My son is just Ozzy. Although we do call him Oswald a lot which i swore I wouldn't do lol. He also gets Oz. If you love the name Ozzy just go for it, we've had a few raised eyebrows but to be fair, he's not their child and our school has far more 'out there' names than Ozzy.

@exerciseviligance I actually know two Austin/Ozzy’s! One is my dads best friend (about 60) and one is my friend (early 30s) 😊

God I really wouldn’t just call him Ozzy, though it’s a nice nn.

Austin is good

Augustus ??
