Obviously Toby for short. Also like Nicholas, Nic got short.

Like a lot

I really love Toby, not so sure about Tobias. I do like to have a 'proper' name though.

Nicholas/Nick is also nice, but definitely prefer Toby.

Like a LOT.

I had an absolutely lovely FWB called Toby/Tobais when I was young... As I get older I always wonder why we never really tried to make a go of it... smile

Really not keen at all sorry.

Could try Tobit instead?

Umm and if you get a chance read a bible with the story in, you will need it to have the apocrypha in (a Catholic one maybe). It has a dog and Angels.

Not keen on Tobias or Toby, I much prefer Nicholas.

I like Tobias, probably more than Toby.

Tobias and Toby are ace.
Nicholas is nice.
Also like Josiah.

Loathe Tobias.
Love Toby
Nicholas (Nic) is a fab name, especially if born around Christmas

IoraRua Thu 19-Nov-15 22:07:57

Loathe Toby.
I don't mind Tobias, it's not doing much for me either way.

Love Tobias/Toby.
Like Nicholas too.

Like both Tobias & Nicholas.

It's fine. Kinda sweet.

A family member has just called her baby this though - they are calling him by the full version all the time - and I just keep forgetting it! It just falls out of my head! So for me personally it is literally not memorable!

strawberrypenguin Fri 20-Nov-15 07:23:04

I love it - was on my list for DS but DH vetoed it!

ChinaSorrows Fri 20-Nov-15 07:33:14

I teach a Tobias. I actually teach several. They're all Toby bar one whine have to call by his full name!

They're both beautiful names. Tobias is pretty popular at the moment but I haven't come across a baby Nicholas in a few years

timelytess Fri 20-Nov-15 07:35:07

Tobias. Love it.

fairyfeatures Fri 20-Nov-15 10:18:23

Loathe and especially loathe Toby.

Completely irrational hate for the name as no connections or connotations for me. But what does my opinion matter! If you love it, got for it.

JanuaryJuniper Fri 20-Nov-15 12:06:58

Don't like Toby but love Tobias

MrsCaecilius Fri 20-Nov-15 12:39:20

Like Tobias, love Toby as nn. Prefer it to Nicholas (but that's for personal reasons!)

lovelyupnorth Fri 20-Nov-15 12:41:07

i like toby and would do the same as in shorten

nmg85 Fri 20-Nov-15 12:54:32

Love Tobias! If friend didn't have a son called it we might have used it when time comes
