We named our 5th son Oslo in 2013. We love it, he loves it, and everyone he meets loves it. It suits him perfectly.

I think it does work well, especially because it fits in with Milo, Harlow ect. and o names are also very popular right now.

I love Oslo! I like the names Oscar and Milo, so Oslo is perfect. I can see a little boy wearing it well.

I named a werewolf character of mine Oslo--didn't know it was ever used as a real name. Personally, I like it much better than most of the Os- names like Oswald, Oswin and Osbourne.
