I have 9 weeks left and have 3 name choices for a boy (we know it is a boy!). DS1 is Oliver and we like the following:
Sebastian (Seb)

People seem to either love or hate Seb and Rory. Most people like jack but it is very, very popular.

Which is better or have you any suggestions?

Either of the other two but not Rory!!! Other two are both lovely though.

I prefer Seb. I know a couple of Sebs, think it is not too "out there" any more.

Agree Jack seems overdone. Rory sounds a bit "Boy's Own" to me.

Really like Rory. I like Sebastian, but not the shortened version (Seb).

Another one for Sebastian here (although I do like Jack).

Rory is my fav

LaDiDaDi Tue 15-Jul-08 20:54:55

All nice but Jack is a bit too popular for me.

I vote Rory.

Sebastian, is the best, well, I love Jack but it's soooo 'common' sorry, can't think of a better word, oh, 'popular' that I wouldn't go for it now. Don't like Rory at all, our local team mascot is Rory the Lion, I suppose that's influencing me somewhat!!!!!!

Love Rory, fab name!

Of the three I prefer Jack - but as you say, it is vey popular if that bothers you.

I think of Rory as Irish name (although spelt differently).

Jack I think is very popular at the moment.

Sebastian is a bit much maybe?

I'd go for Rory.

have to say my favourite is Sebastian as I wanted it for DS1 but DH said no. Has taken 4 years to talk him round.

hard to put a middle name with though as it's sooo long!!

Sebastian / Seb

or failing that, (which would be a shame)

Sebastian - I like it a lot but I don't like Seb at all

Rory - like it

Jack - nowt wrong with it just not v exciting; maybe as a middle name for one of the other two?

Sebastian, lovely lovely name.

cafebistro Tue 15-Jul-08 21:06:12

Jack or sebastian.
Dont like Rory

SuperSillyus Tue 15-Jul-08 21:20:34

I really like all three names. I think that you will know better once the baby arrives which name will suit him best.

AbbeyA Tue 15-Jul-08 21:32:24

Not Rory. Unfortunately Sebastian is bound to get Seb. I like Jack.

cheesesarnie Tue 15-Jul-08 21:34:24

Sebastian (Seb).

I heard of a Sebastian who was nicknamed Sid.
