I quite like it, so does DH, I don't know any others and it goes well with our surname.....

I'm not keen but only because we know a most unpleasant man of the same name. Nathaniel is better, have a friend who has a Nathaniel, he is sometimes called Nat.

Yeah, like it (thinks of Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls).

Agree with McDreamy that Nathaniel is better.

Like it - quite a lot of them about too. There are 2 in a class of 10 in reception at DSs school this year. Falling in popularity, though, according to this website.

my ds is Nathan, Nathan is an abbreviation of Jonathan not Nathanial
