Yes. My middle name is Oscar.
I have a cousin who was born a few months before me, who is also named Scott Meyer. My understanding is that my parents liked the name and decided to use it as well. They differentiated my name from his by giving me the middle name Oscar. It didn’t make me any happier about the situation.
The sad thing is, I think Oscar is a really cool name. I might even prefer it to Scott, if it weren’t for my last name.
After putting this comic out there, I was made aware of this comic, which is very funny and much more concise than my take on the same idea.
