Hi all,

I am hoping for your help. I'm pregnant with a boy, only 23 weeks but now we know it's a boy our conversation usually comes around to names.

My DH and I can't agree on our favourite. His favourite is Sebastian, mine is Rafferty. I'm hoping that you can suggest some middle names which go well with either which might help us think which one we like better. Think we'll wait til he arrives and see what he looks like before we pick the name for definite, but thought it would be good to have some options.

Sebastian Oliver
Sebastian Joel
Rafferty Gene
Rafferty Joel

Like Joseph with either first name choice.

OP I didnt think you were really asking opinions about your and partner's fav name choices - don't let folk put you off either name and go for the one you love that 'suits' him when he comes :-)

Sometimes the way the names sound together depends on your surname - can you tell us the first initial and or number of syllables?

Surname will start with a D, rhymes with Robson.

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I knew that Rafferty might have a bit of a marmite effect, but I still love it. I suppose the fact that it's only in the top 300 means it won't be for lots of people but I really like that it isn't going to be too common too.

However all if your suggestions are definitely increasing my love of Sebastian, so that's really good too.

I don't really see the point in a middle name for decoration only. Family traditions etc are understandable.

Don't bring a child called Rafferty to Newcastle. With the recent vogue for naming kids after their places of conception, Rafferty's is one of Newcastle's more "characterful" pubs.

"Surname will start with a D, rhymes with Robson."

Dobson by any chance ?

Rafferty for me sounds like taffeta. Ridiculous and not very helpful!

something very short and plain, to set Rafferty off (Sebastian's OK but I hate Seb). One syllable. Can't actually think of anything off the top of my head!
