Osmond - What do you think?

Wondering if people like it and what kind of “feel” you think it has? Serious? Masculine? Cute? Smart? Adventurous? [name_u]Unique[/name_u]? [name_f]TIA[/name_f]

The name [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] has become quite popular and I think that this is a nice gentlemanly alternative. I like how you don’t hear it often. I think it sounds very dignified and distinctive. The nickname [name_m]Ozzy[/name_m] grounds it too. I think it’s definitely ready for a comeback. Great choice!

Thanks so much - that is really helpful. I wanted to make sure it didn’t sound too stuffy or harsh. Going for strong and sweet

[name_m]Osmond[/name_m]: Serious, romantic, old-timey, well-mannered, properly dressed, good posture, literary, formal, dreamy. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it!

[name_m]Osmond[/name_m] feels a little like [name_m]Desmond[/name_m]: sophisticated, thoughtful, bookish, intelligent, compassionate…but a little more quirky which I adore. I also love the nn [name_m]Ozzy[/name_m].

Thanks. I love the dreamy and literary descriptors :slight_smile:

I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_m]Osmond[/name_m]! It’s vintage, classic, charming and handsome and comes with the cute nn [name_m]Ozzie[/name_m].

Oooh! Thank you so much. I think I needed to hear that. I want him to be handsome and charming and I have a thing for all things vintage. My husband was pushing this name and I just want to make sure it didn’t sound too nerdy or harsh.

I think it’s positively dashing!

[name_m]Osmond[/name_m] strikes me as a combination between [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] and [name_m]Edmund[/name_m]. [name_m]Edmund[/name_m] has old-fashioned charm and medieval stability, but [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] makes me think of the grouch on Seasame [name_m]Street[/name_m].
So, I prefer [name_m]Edmund[/name_m] to [name_m]Osmond[/name_m].
