I love saying this name. When I heard it on TV as a little kid, it got stuck in my head like a catchy song. Is just liking the sound of a word good cause for giving it to a baby. I wonder if the OX syllable would bring any teasing... The name does sound very strong, which is lovely.

Please add Oksana Chusovitina to your list of celebs with the name. She's a five time Olympian in gymnastics, has a vault named after her (I think) and is a general all-around awesome role model for little girls!
