Votes please ladies!

We are currently trying to decide between Montgomery which we would shorten to Monty and Sebastian which we'd shorten to Seb.

Which do you prefer?

I'm 14 weeks PG, Monty and Seb are in my top three names so I adore both! IMO Monty does have an 'edge' over Seb. Zevi is my third name but that's more DP's choice than mine.

It's more of a classic than Monty, imo, and I think Montgomery sound ridiculous to be honest

Seb - definitely

LJBB1 Fri 02-Jan-15 06:26:48

I also vote Seb!

Seb, lovely name- though I do like both.

Whilst Sebastian sounds nice and strong, its nicknames Seb, Sebby or Basty don't imo.

I much prefer Monty as a nickname.

If I had to choose one, Monty. But I'm not posh enough to use either in real life.

I love both. I think I slightly prefer Sebastian but I'm worried it's going to get super popular so am wavering over it for our DS.

neither sorry Monty is dreadful and Seb sounds like sebum

Monty, great name.

Sorry, not keen on Seb.

shoobidoo Fri 02-Jan-15 22:37:47

Seb = Sebacious = Oily

Just not manly or strong imo.

Montgomery is awful sorry

Quite like Bastian as a shortened version of Sebastian, might be a bit too French sounding for UK usage though, and probably wouldn't work well with most UK accents.

GraysAnalogy Fri 02-Jan-15 22:46:01

Think they're both a bit pretentious really but Seb would be my choice OP

Congrats btw

CrazyOldBagLady Fri 02-Jan-15 22:48:27

Monty is fine presuming you are the Queen's cousin or from some old money type family!

LucyBabs Fri 02-Jan-15 22:48:50

Monty as in Monty Burns from the Simpsons wink

I like Sebastian.. I don't like either name shortened..

Congrats OP x

Monty. It reminds me of Darling Buds of May. smile

LeoandBoosmum Fri 02-Jan-15 22:50:32

Sebastian but only if you don't shorten it.
Monty (Montgomery) just sound too pretentious to me... I also think of Monty as the kind of name that might belong to an eccentric uncle, or worse, a cat!

I love Monty - almost called DC3, my last child, and daughter, it.
