    Also... I really mean it: my second boy (aged 2) is an Oscar! But it's pretty rare over here!
    What a terrific choice! And I bet your little Oscar is absolutely adorable to match his name It's a bonus that there aren't too many other Oscars around!!!!

    With the new royal baby, Louis will surely be on the rise. (A la Charlotte). I know a handful, but Oscar feels much less common.

    Hi there babymakesthree,

    Thank you kindly for your insight and for your experiences with both names. As with a previous poster, could I please ask which country you're based?

    Statistics seem to be quite different here in Australia (or my area, at least) where I'm finding the opposite with recent naming trends and bumping into way more little Oscars of late.

    Hard to believe, but I'm yet to meet a little Louis in my area and that definitely adds to the appeal of the name for me

    Thank you for your suggestions. There are some lovely choices here. I just don't want to add more to the mix again. DH is already frustrated enough about my indecisiveness! LOL x

    I voted for Louis. As a teacher, there are so many Oscars where I’m based (Sydney). Louis would stand out more as does Adelaide. The only thing is you will probably get ‘oh Louis like the royal name’ quite a bit!
    Boys: Otis Wilder, Louis Fox
    Girls: Willa Valentine, Daisy Winter & Goldie Marlowe
