Oscar or Sebastian? Which one do you think we should go for? Older brother is called Nicholas.

We can't decide which we prefer!

Like both but Sebastian tops it for me

I prefer Oscar as it goes with Nicholas slightly better imo. I do like Sebastian too though.

Sebastian for me

Oscar, I think it's a great name.

I’m go Oscar…. Better for shouting! As in ‘Oscar, Nicholas come down for dinner’.

Although both Nicholas and Sebastian could be shortened for ‘nicknames’…. As someone with a name which doesn’t make for a good ‘nickname’ I envy those who can! But then my Dad is very anti-nickname.

Both great names! Oscar just has the edge.

Do you shorten Nicholas to Nick? If so Sebastien could work well....Nick and Seb sound like great names for brothers. (The two Sebastien's I know are always called Seb by everyone apart from their mothers - so I think it's almost inevitable Sebastien will be a Seb).

If you don't shorten Nicholas then as a PP says, Oscar might work better - less of a mouthful when both names said together!

It's near the top of my list if I have a DS
