"My little boy is named Oliver, he's 3 now. He is hysterically full of energy and 100% boy in a house of all sisters! He's incredibly creative and we call him Olly very often. His middle name is Warren for my hubby's grandfather. My mom loves the very regal sound of his name together! He often insists his name is "Mr. Incredible" or "Batman" or someother character. It all adds to the awesome character that Oliver has!" Mar. 11, 2009:

"My sons name is Oliver. While I was pregnant I picked it while walking thru the book store, reading the last name of authors. As soon as I read the name, I knew that's what my sons name was going to be. It is such a great name." May. 6, 2009:
"My baby is due in June and my husband and I have wanted the name Oliver for over 2 years now. I think it is a classic name that you just don't hear that often. Of course, my first son is Jackson, which was not popular until the year he was born, then everyone had a son named Jackson. But we are sticking with Oliver hoping that won't happen again."
