My son's name is Sebastian. We get so many compliments on his name. I am so glad my husband chose this name for my son!!!
Bastian or Bastion

We are naming our son Bastion, and I think it is a great alternative to Sebastian (also a wonderful name!) It comes from the concept of "the last bastion" or "bastion of strength" We just love it!

My Sebastian is almost 7 years old. I love his name and am surprised by his nicknames at school - Seb, Sebe, Sebass...

I'm French and my older son, now 16,is called SébastiEn (the French way of spelling it) which is a classical name here but not too common but everyone calls him Seb, sometimes Sebass. At the beginning, I was always calling him by his entire name as SEB is a brand, so it was strange to me, but finally I called him Seb like everyone and now I feel it's natural and don't think this nickname is awfull. I think that Sebastian is less common in Anglosaxon countries that Sébastien as I never see any actors in films called like that. Is it true?
Bastien is another name for me. I would never think of it as Sébastien in short, but it is lovely too and I think that they are more common nowadays than my son's name.
