Thoughts on Sebastian/Sebastien?
FH laughed at me when I suggested it…and so did my male coworker. I happen to love it! It reminds me of Ryan Philippe from Cruel Intentions, and I could imagine my little baby boy growing up to be lady magnet 😛 (haa)
Ps. Not pregnant, FH and I just got the baby bug out of nowhere..so here I am.

I like it, but two friends of mine just named their babies this. I think it is getting too popular.

The song “Under the Sea” popped into my head immediately. Sorry 🙁

Pfffft to Little Mermaid. It makes me think of Neverending Story (even tho that’s Bastion). Which to me is a good thing.
Plus I live near a francophone community where the French version is really lovely in pronounciation…

I really like it too! It was on my list of potential names but DH had the same reaction your FH did… =/
Maybe it only appeals to women?

I took French in school, so the French pronunciation is what popped into my head.
That being said, the crab version came in my head after that.
I do like the name a lot though.

@howtobeawife: LOL I responded before I saw your post. For some reason, I’ve been singing “Under the Sea” to FI for about a week now…he’s loving it 😉

I don’t, and the only reason is that it tends to have a negative connotation in society. Often a villian is portrayed as Sebastian.

it’s one of my favorite boy names.

The only reason the crab pops into our heads is because most of us are the perfect age to remember the little mermaid. i dont think that will be as much of an issue for a kid now adays.
i love it.

I have a cousin called Sebastian, so I’m partial to it. 🙂

I like the name. Did you have a nickname in mind to go with it? Just curious.

FIs twin is named Sebastien, so I like it and have positive associations with that name. In school people called him sea bass as a nick name and we abbreviate it to seb sometimes

I know a 6 year old named Sebastian. It’s cute! His parents call him Fin because it means Finished/The End and he’s their last child.
