Oskar is a boy’s name, meaning “spear of the gods.” Although linked to British origins, this worldly title boasts German, Scandinavian, and Irish roots. With such a diverse background to his name, this little boy will be born ready for an adventure. Inspired by the strength and nobility of his name’s meaning, Oskar may be instrumental to the success of those around him, offering support and aid wherever needed. The Irish meaning takes the gentler form of “deer friend.” If the “spear of the gods” seems a little too combative, maybe this budding boy can opt for a pen and be inspired by the poetic writing of Oscar Wilde.
