This is my son's name and it's the most perfect name for our family. The older people that have a hard time saying his name call him Ozzy. It only bothers me a little bit that people can't pronounce it because we found it so easy to pronounce right off the bat, like are they even trying!!! Even my younger sister was like "I'll just say his nickname cause it's too hard" :S

I'm surprised to find that I like this name a lot. Has some of the same cool sounds as "Isaiah" or "Elijah" but much less the nickname is great.
