ORIGIN:

NAME ROOT:
(ōS GāR > ŌSGāR) (ÁSGæIRR / ǢSGæIRR)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old Irish name “Osgar”, composed of two elements: “os” (deer) and “cara” (friend, relation). Oscar also is a figure in the Fenian Cycle of Irish mythology. He is the warrior son of Oisín and the fairy woman Niamh, who also bore his sister, Plor na mBan. Oisín, in turn, was the son of the epic hero Fionn mac Cumhail. The given name Oscar is also linked with the Old English “Ōsgār” and the Old Norse cognate Ásgeirr, both of which come from the Old Norse name “ÁsgæiRR and ǢsgæiRR”, composed of two elements: “áss” (heathen god) and “*gaizaz” (spear).
