    Sebastian/Bastian

    really love the name Sebastian but feel like it might be too overwhelming of a name. I like Bastian by itself as well and it reminds me of the movie " the never ending story " which for me is a good thing. Opinions on Sebastian or just Bastian as a fn? Do they go with Benjamin and Nathaniel

    I like Sebastian (with the a) and Bastien (with the e). I had this same debate myself as many of my family members have names beginning with B.

    As Benjamin and Nathaniel are both the long forms of the name, I would go with Sebastian in this case.
    Let me explain
    Shortest forms: Seb, Ben, Nate.
    Middle length: Bastien, Benji, Nathan.
    Long forms: Sebastian, Benjamin, Nathaniel.

    For this reasoning, I would go with Sebastian and I think they make a lovely sibset. They're all names of similar length with a long history of use. Also it may be weird to have 2 kids with the first initial B and one with N. Give each kid their own initials.

    I would use Sebastian as the full name. He could always go by Bastian.

    I really like and agree with this explanation:

    I really like Sebastian. It is a very handsome name that has many different nickname options. I also like Bastian but I would use it as a nickname. Benjamin, Nathaniel, and Sebastian are a wonderful set.
    Charles Hawthorne "Charlie" o Jack Wilder o Theodore Boone "Teddy"
    Sophie Jane Magnolia o Emma Eloise Maebry o Anneline Elisabet Winter

    crushing on - Piers Lachlan, Tadhg Emerson, and Maebry Eloise

    Agree completely! Benjamin, Nathaniel and Sebastian make a gorgeous sibset!
