We have just found out that are second (and likely last) baby is a boy. 90% sure we will go with Oscar as a first name - hubbys choice and I love it. Any suggestions for a middle name? Big sister is Phoebe Amelia. Does Òscar go well with Phoebe? Thanks ❤️

I really like Oscar Theodore which just about everyone has suggested

The only family name I would use is James - just not sure if Oscar James is too boring? Also don’t like the initials OJ

Oscar  and Phoebe are great names.

Some names that would work with your daughter's beautiful and classic name: Oscar Theodore, Oscar James, Oscar George, Oscar William, Oscar Luke, Oscar Henry, Oscar Benjamin.

We have an Oscar Milo. His name has gotten many compliments.

Congrats on your little boy!

We have decided on James as a middle name. Although DH has now said that he will consider Alexander as a first name (had previously rejected it outright). So now it’s a toss up between Oscar James or Alexander James .... 🤔

I think you’re on a winner either way but I’ve always loved Alexander (Alex).
