Is Linus too connected to the Peanuts character to be a legitimate baby-name contender? How about Oscar? too "Academy awards?, too Sesame street? Any thoughts/opinions?

Linus definitely has Peanuts connection for me, but it is a cute name.

I know that Linus will have a strong Peanuts connection, but he's such an awesome little character.

Hi there.

Linus does sort of automatically bring up the Peanuts character, but he is a great guy!

I think both Linus and Oscar would be really refreshing! :)

Of course there are sesame street connections to Oscar, but I also love the literary namesakes! More so, I also think of Oscar on The Office. So that reference makes me think of the name in more spanish/latin tones. Oscar can be exotic, it can be intelligent, it can be elegant (awards show-y). :)

Linus is very cool and a breath of fresh air. Almost artsy/musical in my mind. A smart, quiet, unique kid.

Love them both! :) Best of luck.
