I’m in Scotland, if that makes any difference.

Torin is very nice - but it just tried to autocorrect to Torino grin

I'm not a fan of Sebastian, it's too long & fussy for me. I like Seb, though.

Torin! Great name.

I dislike Sebastian especially the short forms Seb, Sebby, Basty - reminds me of oily (sebaceous)

Sebastian/Seb ❤️

Sebastian for me - very handsome.

Torin is great.

Sebastian is very Brideshead.

I like both but if you’re torn I’d go with Torin - although autocorrect hates it - because Tor is a really cool and very unusual nn.

Sebastian is too long and fussy sounding, whereas the short forms are too soft eg Seb, Basty.

Torin is a strong classic name! Love it.

I really like Torin, it's a lovely name in full and as pp have said Tor is a great nn

Divgirl2 Sat 07-Sep-19 21:02:43

Torin is definitely more popular where I am (Scotland), but I dislike Seb.

Grufallosfriends Sat 07-Sep-19 21:03:35

Seb does sound like sebaceous. Don't like it at all.

Thanks, I’m leaning towards Torin...

Sebastian, Torin reminds me of torrid.

Sebastian is ok but quite long. I'm not keen on Seb

I've never heard the name Torin before but I think it's fantastic. Sebastian is nice but only in its entirety, all the shortened versions are awful

Torin sounds great. Do you know the meaning OP?
Will sound especially nice with the soft Scottish rrrrrs

4storytoy Sat 07-Sep-19 21:38:34

Google says the meaning is ‘chief’ or ‘from the craggy hills’.

MissHenty Sat 07-Sep-19 22:06:00

Sebastian is a gorgeous name

Lavenderblues Sat 07-Sep-19 22:46:45

Sebastian is nice but the problem is that it's quite long. And the short forms are awful - Seb, Sebbie, Bas, Basty?! So soft and weak.

Lavenderblues Sat 07-Sep-19 22:47:32

Torin sounds strong and is easy to say!

I know a Toran in Scotland

Ooh, I like Torin very much smile

Another vote for Torin although I love the name Sebastian too
