Oscar Name Meaning
Scandinavian and English: from the personal name Oscar, which is of Gaelic origin, composed of the elements os ‘deer’ + cara ‘friend’. The personal name owes its popularity in Scandinavia and elsewhere to the Ossian poems of James MacPherson (1760), which enjoyed a great vogue in the latter part of the 18th century.
