    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 πŸ™

    Love it!

    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 Darling Husband 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 Fiance for about a week now…he’s loving it πŸ˜‰

    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.

    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 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.
