    Hmm.. For some reason I just can't seem to like Tobias, and I've tried to since it has a lot of qualities I really appreciate. I think mostly I don't like it cuz the NN Toby sounds funny to me. Carsten is okay, but it sounds a lot like a mix of Carson and Kristen to my ear. Nonetheless, I prefer it.

    My choice would be Tobias, but I love the nn Toby.

    Carsten isn't my style at all, feels rather harsh, and slightly like a mish-mash of Carson, Kristen, Carter, Carston.

    The only Carsten I've known was a girl, and I thought they meant Kirsten for the first 10 minutes of talking with them. Tobias is wonderful, and seems much less trendy. I do think that Toby could be an issue, though, as he may choose to use it himself. But Tobias seems much more natural with Phoebe and Ingrid.

    I am not a fan of Tobias James, though... both end in an -s... so it almost hisses. Although I much prefer Tobias, Carsten pairs much better with James.

    Tobias by a long shot! This is a very handsome, strong name and beats out Carsten easily, particularly if you include your girls' names into the equation.
    Good luck!
