IMO Oliver is nice and classic, but it's still pretty unusual.

WDYT of Oliver?

I chose Oliver for my son. We chose it because it is classic, has a nice sound, and wasn't overly popular yet.

Edited to add: I have gotten a lot of negative comments on it though, since a lot of people think it is too old fashioned or sounds snooty.

My grandpa's MN was Oliver so it's always been on my list. My DD was almost Olivia before that became too popular.

I don't know that I could use it as a first name, but definitely as a mn. I think it's really cute.

I love Oliver because they have a nice name that can be shortened to "Oli" which is a nice NN.

I love this name Its just so classic but its not overused though I probably wouldn't use it, I have only ever met one Oliver he was about 9 months old and he was the strangest child I have ever met Felt sorry for the poor thing
