Sebastian is one of my favourite boys names but I'm a bit concerned that it's become quite trendy/popular recently and will be one of those names with two/three plus at school.

How many baby/toddler Sebastians do you know?

One who'd be about 15 now. Was a name I had on the short list if one of the DDs had been a boy.

Before we moved to the States, there were four in my 7-year old son's year at his old school (a small pre-prep), out of only 50 pupils. There were several other boys named Sebastian in other years.

There were also quite a few in the senior school that my 14-year old son was attending before the move.

Personally though, I know three; my nephew (3), my friend's son (5) and my BIL (29).

It's worth remembering though, that names can "trend" by area, and where we lived and where my sons went to school, Sebastian was very much "in fashion". In other areas, that won' be the case, so try to find out how popular the name is in your area, if it concerns you.

Three. I like it.

One, aged 8.

One, he's cute but his parents are bellends and have put me off the name

2 - one aged 12 and one aged 2. I teach at an all boys school and still can only think of the one 12 year old and no others. May be more at a primary though.

Lovely name! I'm in east Scotland and know one in his 40's (South Coast of England), 4 in their 30's (France & Poland), one who is 3 (Scotland). It may be popular at the moment in some areas but not here! it's a classic. smile

I know lots of 2ish year olds, no Sebastians amongst them.

Of the 5 boy baby's born in our NCT group last year 3 of them (!) were called Sebastian!

It's very popular here,I know 4 at my son's small school.
My nephew, age 6 is also a Sebastian.

We considered it for our DS2 and are now considering it as a middle name for DC3 if it's a boy.

I know one other - he's about 7 or 8. My sister teaches another who's about 15.

It's not overly popular, I don't think. At a guess I'd say it probably featured somewhere in the top 50 most popular names, but if you like it, go for it!
