Comment left Apr 14, 2013: "My boy is Sebastian. He is a handsome kid and we call him Seb around the house. His sisters have uncommon names so we chose a name that would be distinctive without being weird. He has blond hair and striking blue eyes so I hope he doesn't break too many hearts."

Comment left Feb 24, 2009: "I named my son Sebastian. I love that name because it is a name that sounds good in French, Spanish and English. Yes, I am tri-lingual so it was important for me. He's five now and complains a little because it's a "LONG" name but we always get complimented on his name. It is a strong name but he'll grow into it. We don't use any short "Seb" or "Sebas" (as in Spanish) because I like the full name so much!!" (Report as inappropriate)
