hi,
dc3 not due for ages, but IF it's a boy, I need some help with boys' names. I like Sebastian, but HATE Seb/Sebby and any other shortenings, so can't use it. Also, it's getting a bit too popular around here for my liking - dc1 and dc2 both have slightly unusual names.
Are there any other boys names that have the same sophisticated, slightly French feel, are not too common, but not weird?

Some of these are ok, but nothing I love...

If it helps, some other names I quite like but can't use for various reasons:

Tobias
Arthur
Benedict
Gabriel

thanks!

Circusclown, I'm so pleased you posted this as I was just coming on to ask the same! Love Sebastian but it's just a bit too clunky for everyday use and don't like Seb either.

I haven't got any to add I'm afraid but I do like your Tobias (nn Toby) so may pinch that!

mysecretumbrella - my problem with Tobias is that I don't like Toby! Couldn't use it anyway though, as it is too similar to one of my other dc's names. Keep 'em coming - there MUST be a name I like out there!

Love Lysander as an alternative to Sebastian but can see this has been suggested a few times already.
