Marcus and Luke always sound a bit limp wristed to me.

Sebastian it has to be! And Seb is a good nickname. Good luck, hope he comes soon and doesn't keep you hanging on for ages ...

I prefer Lucas to Luke. If I had to pick one of your list I'd probably go with Sebastian.

All three are perfectly fine though.

Unless your surname is Coe, obviously.

Sebastian x

Beatrixpotty Mon 25-Mar-13 12:23:44

Quite like all of them.
Probably would go for Marcus or Sebastian as slightly fewer around.

Sebastian smile

Definately Sebastian from your very short list. I think it's a lovely name and Seb is a cute nn too.

ladymia Mon 25-Mar-13 14:05:38

I prefer Sebastian out of those but dislike the nn Seb

Luke or Sebastian. But if you don't like any of them, remember you have 40 days after the birth to register the baby. Please don't pick a name you actively don't like to shut your husband up. I did this, and I still actively like my DC's name nearly 9 years later.

"i dont actually like any of them but sick of arguing"

Please don't give up - you really need to find a name YOU and YOUR DH likes!

Personally I don't the nicknames for Sebastian - Seb/Sebby/Basty - so would choose Marcus.

Oerrr, sounds like your husband is a bit poncy with names.

ladymia Mon 25-Mar-13 14:20:10

Yes I also want to add, I have a friend that named her son something she didn't like but her OH insisted on and she can't still bring herself to say it 6 months later she still just calls him baby.

Tell your OH this could affect your ability to bond with your baby, it's important you find a name you both like.

If he's like this over the name what else won't he let you do??

'Marcus and Luke always sound a bit limp wristed to me'

What the actual Jeff? hmm

I love Sebastian/Seb.

KittenOfDoom Mon 25-Mar-13 14:32:41

Marcus is the best one. He can be Marc if he prefers it.

Sebastian is a bit too limpwristed Brideshead for me, and Luke always makes me think of liver fluke, which is a nasty disease that farm animals get.

EduCated Mon 25-Mar-13 14:34:52

Ok, seriously, limp wristed is ok to use? As in, 'those names will make your baby sound gay'? hmm

KittenOfDoom Mon 25-Mar-13 14:46:12

Who said anything about gay?

EduCated Mon 25-Mar-13 14:47:22

What else is limp wristed supposed to imply?

woozlebear Mon 25-Mar-13 14:49:55

Camp? And straight men can be very camp.

ladymia Mon 25-Mar-13 14:50:51

Come now Kitten, everyone knows what's implied with the homophobic term limp-wristed!

What is YOUR definition of it?

Bumpsadaisie Mon 25-Mar-13 14:50:54

Why do you think gay people are limp-wristed, EduCated? confused

KittenOfDoom Mon 25-Mar-13 14:51:57

To me it suggests someone a bit feeble, perhaps a bit effeminate - which is NOT the same as gay. Bit of a weedy little wanker who gets sand kicked in his face.

woozlebear Mon 25-Mar-13 14:52:37

Which distracted me from my original contribution which was that I like Marcus the best for reasons in no way related to an exremely good looking German guy I used to know by that name It was spelled with a K not a C, which I thought made it look cooler.

What names do YOU like OP?

LeonieDeSainteVire Mon 25-Mar-13 14:55:26

Well I like them all!

I only know 1 child Luke, a few called Marcus but a lot called Sebastian if that helps.

Good names, ignore stupid comments.

Love Sebastian!!!
