Seb or Tate for a boy?

What are the meanings of both? I'd go with whichever meaning I preferred

Is Seb short for Sebastian or on it's own? I like Sebastian, Seb would be ok as a nn although it does make me of think sebaceous glands... Don't like Tate, sounds like a surname and I don't generally like surnames as first names.

Both sound a bit like 80s preppy boys names and quite try hard

What other Options do you have? I like Seb but there are 3 in my dds class it's very common. Tate is a NO.

Seb isn't even a name.

My ds is Sebastian. He's known mainly as Seb. We have many comments from people about how much they love the name, even strangers when attending appointments etc.

Love Seb, sadly DP hates it so I can't use it but much prefer it to Tate.

Thanks everyone sorry my phone was on the brink. The other options we have are Seth, James and Josh. We have decided against Tate but Seb still in the running.
