Oscar is an Old English name that may derive from the Old Norse name Asgeirr which is composed of two words meaning "god" and "spear".

I really love this name. It's gorgeous, no? And it is an excellent name to make affectionate nicknames out of, easy to shorten. At the moment, it's a very, very popular name for pets. My own cat is named Oscar.

I think Oscar is a great name for a pet, especially a cat or dog. Not fond of it for a person though.

Oscar the Grouch? I can't believe you guys forgot him. Yeah, this why I'd NEVER name my kid this.
-- xKatiex  11/29/2006
I did have an annoying little dog named Oscar at one point. But I still like this name for a boy! It's really cute, spirited, and fun!

Reminds me of Oscar the Grouch and I find it very unappealing.
-- Jasmine  2/28/2007
I think this name is nice, but due to association with Oscar the Grouch, I wouldn't use it because he loves garbage and garbage is gross.

For me this would just be a cute sort of name that one would associate with a furry pet or their great-grandfather, except for Oscar Wilde. He makes it awesome, somehow.

This is the name of my brother, and I think it's a good name. It's actually one of the most popular names in Sweden, but most of the time spelled "Oskar" instead of "Oscar".

A famous bearer (well, maybe not so famous) is Oscar, in the TV show Corner Gas. He's a tad ... odd.
-- Anonymous User  5/14/2008
I like the name a lot - it's not that common, but sounds strong and mysterious.
-- Anonymous User  7/1/2008
Dude. Oscar the Grouch rocks. If I were ever named after a Muppet, I think I'd be kind of honored. But then I think that's because of a dedicated love to all things puppets and Jim Henson. Anyhoo. Oscar is a name with character. I can totally see this little boy holding broken pieces of a vase, telling you, "I swear I didn't do it." Yeah, he'll get into trouble, but deep down, he's a good kid.

The name Oscar is strong and masculine, and it sounds like it belongs to a leader. Unfortunately, many people will immediately associate it with Sesame Street.

I advise against taking the mispronunciation Americans apply to the name. It is NOT Os-KER, bus Os-CAR! I can't replicate the symbols here, but the OED uses kar, with a short A and a soft R.
-- amedeofelix  8/15/2010
This name is growing on me. But just like with the name George, I can't picture calling my child it because it's so strong. Still great though.

And I love the name Oscar - pity it's not common anymore.

Oscar is one of those names that has really grown on me, and I might just use for a third son. Oscar is a refined name, and I don't let Oscar the Grouch ruin it. It has a wonderful association with the academy awards and Oscar Wilde. I like the nicknames Oz and Ozzie.
