Just looking for some feedback please. My husband is very keen on the name Sebastian for a boy and I've always wanted Gabriel in a son's name but have decided not to use it as a first name. Does this 'go' as a name or is it too long?

If it sounds rubbish can anyone offer good middle names for Sebastian?

Thanks very much smile

Very nice, look no further! Both classic names which go well together.

They do go well to together

I love the combination, perfect!

I think they go well although I 'd try to wriggle a little Duncan in there somehow. Preferably before Sebastian.

Personally I think a one syllable middle name would flow better e.g.
Sebastian John
Sebastian Lee
Sebastian George

Although I do love Gabriel and much prefer it over Sebastian (really dislike Seb/Sebby/Basty, sorry).

Both lovely but maybe a bit long together. How about Sebastion Gabe. That said how often do you say a full name (unless theyre being naughty) smile

i agree with Rachel234. they are both beautiful names but a bit too chunky together.

too 'clunky' together.. needs one syllable...

Another one here who thinks the combination sounds too cumbersome together. A one syllable middle name would go much better imo.

I too prefer Gabriel over Sebastian as I don't like the nicknames Seb/Sebby or Bassy.

It's cool - how often do we say our middle names anyway. Gabriel is a personal fave

They go really well together. Sounds fine and doesn't matter about number of syllables - we almost never say them aloud together anyway.

DS2 has Gabriel as a middle name and I often call him both names because I love it so much,

Perfect, dont listen to the one syllable lot, DS is Sebastian Wilfrid Joseph.
