I can't decide for DS2. Second name will probably be Robert. Any thoughts?

Seth is such a cuddly yet manly name. Calum seems trendy.

Prefer Callum, just shame so popular.

Seth unless you can't stand his school mates calling him Seff.

Callum ..

Callum - hate Seth. But tbh Callum isn't a name I'd choose either.

Seth was on our list for a boy, but we went for Callan in the end.
Very similar to Callum, but we preferred Callan, nn Cal.

Here you go: Seth

I love Seth, but isn't it approaching top 100? That would put me off. Callum isn't to my taste, sorry.

I know two Callums and they're both total shits.

PS every Callum I know is lovely though!

Seth! Like Callum too but Seth is less popular and more characterful to my mind.

Another vote for Seth.

I know a mid thirties Seth IRL. There's also the radio 2 presenter Seth Lakeman (sp?).

Can you google most popular baby names for last few years to work out really how popular each name is?

Thanks all for your thoughts. I too had thought of the Emmerdale connection for Seth but there are lots of other Seths since so i don't mind too much. Callum is DH's suggestion but it has been growing on me. My worry about Seth is that it might be a bit too unusual or faddy at the moment.

Callum as Seth always reminds me of the character from Emmerdale Farm. (Back in the days when it was still Emmerdale Farm!)

Seth! I love this name and wanted it as DC2s name but as DD is called beth, we can't use it sad

Seth, I have no bias, it just sounds nicer.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 07-Apr-13 09:16:24

Seth is much nicer.

Callum has a somewhat...negative reputation.

Both great.
