Which do you prefer? Only 2 names me and DP can agree on so far. Further suggestions would be helpfulsmile

Fabian. Fab Ian.

Theodore. I'm not mad about it, but Theo is OK.

Theodore is okay, and it's about a gazillion times better than Fabian.

I like both. Theodore is more common

Definitely Fabian. Theodore is everywhere.

You might as well get your child a t shirt saying 'kick the crap out of me' printed up for school now.

I think Fabian is awful. Definitely Theo.

Fabian is dreamy.

Fabian seems very camp to me.

Theodore. I find Fabian rather fey.

Fabian is what I would imagine a male stripper would call himself if he was really called Dwayne

Fabian is great! Cool and strong.

Theo(odore) is very common and a a little dull imo.

Theodore by miles for me! I love it!

I like Theodore but perhaps in more nickname form, i.e. Theo or Teddy. I've also never met a nice Fabian. I've known three, all grown men, but they've all been miserable and a sourpuss, so that makes me biased I guess!

Fabian is a leetle bit wanky.

Other suggestions you might like:

teen idol from the 60s - fabulous fabian - but maybe that does not concern you!
Theo (as a name in its own right) is nice.

I have a 'common' and 'dull' Theodore shockblushhmm. He's the only one I know and he's lovely. HTH.

I love Fabian - I grew up in Switzerland where it's very common.

I don't know where the PP lives but round here no modern school kid would blink or give 2 shits what you are called, unless it sounded obviously to do with poo or sex, because they are surrounded by kids from so many different cultures and countries now and have heard every name under the sun before they leave primary school, it being 2016 and all.
