    I vote for Sebastian, since it has a more substantial history and less trendy than Paxton. Don't worry about "planning" nicknames and let them come about as they fit.

    I vote Sebastian. Much more meaning behind it, and it sounds nicer too. I know a teenage Sebastian, he's a great person. Great sense of humour and very considerate towards everyone. I'm not really a fan of Paxton, too modern/trendy sounding for me ^^'

    As for the nicknames, don't worry too much. I've heard lots of stories of people who started off hating a nickname and ended up not minding it. And who knows, he might end up with a completely different nickname you hadn't predicted at all.

    Paxton is the best choice. I love the nn Pax, and it seems perfect for a modern boy to wear. : )

    I think Sebastian William sounds better and far less trendy.

    What about the nn.: Ian?

    Less common Sebastian nicknames:

    Bastille (Sebastian and William combined)

    Sebastian by a mile, it's a classic while Paxton will date. My parent's disliked all the nn options for me so I have always been Catherine, not Cath, Cathy, Cat or Cate. You just have to be firm with teachers etc that this is his name.

    If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.
