Sibling name.... little brother to Sebastian
47

bboo17 · 22/11/2020 20:58

Hello all!

I wonder if you could all help a little,
After a boy sibling name for Sebastian.

I really like Rueben but think it sounds a bit predictable for a sibling name to Sebastian.

So trying to think outside the box! Still something traditional and strong but more unique.

So far I love

Rueben
Julius
Quinton
Quillan

I like Alexander but hubby not into it or Felix!

Any of the above you prefer with Sebastian?

Thank you in advance xxx

From your list I would go with Julius or Quinton.

However I like Julian and Quentin much more as names.

Rueben - I love Reuben spelt correctly. But there will be a number of people who don't spell it properly - it depends how annoying that will be. I think it fits well with Sebastian. Seb and Roo are cute together.
Julius - I like this but I think it has the potential to sound a bit pretentious. That wouldn't bother me (my children's names probably fall into that category too) but just saying...
Quinton - I don't mind Quentin (with the same caveat as above) but I've never heard of Quinton and I don't like it as much
Quillan- really dislike
Alexander - lovely. I think this fits very well with Sebastian
Felix - lovely

I also think the following go well with Sebastian:
Christian/Kit
Benedict
Hugo
Rufus (I prefer this to Reuben)
Barnaby
Gus

Not the Q names (unless you are very, very posh).

What about Toby/Tobias?

I really like super posh names 🤣 I’m not particularly posh.
Sebastians full name is Sebastian Frederick Alton
Not including surname, this one will be for instance Quinton Augustus Hilton or Onyx Hilton depending on what we choose , not including surname, all family names excluding Onyx.

I like a Theodore but again? Husbands grandad was called Theodorus so he’d want that variant.

Thank you for all the suggestions so far... will put them to hubby

Is your DH Scandinavian? Theodorus is the Scandinavian version rather than a variant per se.

I love Alexander, but am not keen on your other choices. I agree with pp that Quentin, Benedict, Dominic and Laurence go well with Sebastian. I like Tobias, Maximilian and Nicholas with it too.

Ooh I love the Xavier suggestion - has a slightly exotic sound like Sebastian does to me.
