    Sorry, Oxford is a university and a city to me. I can't see it as anything else.

    Personally I think Beresford & Oxford are too matchy for siblings, the nn Bear is adorable though!
    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

    I'm not a fan of using both as fns since they both end in -ford. It's a bit too matchy. I think you could definitely use Oxford as a mn though. Finnegan Oxford works, though Louis Oxford sound very distinguished.
    Also, Bear as a nn is cute for a child and strong later on. Ox as a nn is too bovine.

    Yeah, it's a beautiful city and a smashing uni, not a name though. What about Somerville, Wolfson, Wycliffe? Or Raleigh, Kingston?
