We are seriously considering this name. Curious what nicknames it has besides Ozzy. (We already have an Oliver who goes by Ollie.)

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.
