    Oswin for a girl

    Is Oswin for a girl too Doctor Who? What else do you associate this name with?

    I wish Moffat hadn't named her that "-_- It's a surname, nothing else.

    If I saw someone named Oswin I would automatically think of Clara Oswald (at least so far she is a good companion). Also Oswin sounds masculine to me.

    Not if you're a writer she's not, lol. My friend and I just watch her and think 'carbon copy of Amy and an exceptional Mary Sue'.

    Haha, this is perfect!

    I don't really have a problem with the name in theory (I'm not a fan of surnames on girls but they're so rampant that I might as well get used to it) but I do think that Oswin will be very tied to Doctor Who, simply because it was so unheard of as a fn before the character.

    ETA: I don't have many other associations with the name, other than it kind of reminds me of Oswald, so then there's Oswald Mosley and Oswald the Octopus...
