Meaning:God's protection
Derived from Old Norse Ásmundr, Osment is a boy’s name, meaning “God’s protection.” Related to the monikers Osmond and Osmund, it’s a heartfelt way to keep baby in God’s good graces. Actor siblings Emily Osment—known for her role as Lilly Truscott in Disney production Hannah Montana, and Haley Joel Osment—famous for playing Cole Sear, the psychic child, in the movie The Sixth Sense, are some of the notable personalities to have lent the name some star power. If you nurture dreams of seeing your little one on the silver screen, Osment is an ambitious choice.
