It’s a bit hard to say, but if you love [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] I wouldn’t let it stop you. It’s not bad enough to pass up your favorite name.

I agree. It might be a bit difficult, but it’s not terrible. I would maybe consider it as a middle.

It’s fine!

I suppose it depends on your pronunciation and accent.
Because of my accent I pronounce [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] like ‘sih-bas-chin’ (3 syllables) rather than 4 syllables and proper enunciation like ‘see-bas-tee-in’.
If you pronounce it the first way, it is a little difficult. But; honestly, -eagleeyes- is right, if it’s your favourite then I wouldn’t give it up.

Honestly, I would keep looking. It is a bit of a tongue twister.

I find it kind of fun to say. It goes into the last name without being overbearing or corny, [name_f]IMO[/name_f].

I think it’s fine. I pronounce [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] to sound more like “SUH-bash-chun,” so it doesn’t sound like [name_m]Chin[/name_m].

I think it depends on pronunciation, but I would suggest not using it. I say [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] as if it ends with “chin” and that’s how most people I’ve heard say it. So it sounds like Sebas-chin [name_m]Chin[/name_m]. “chin chin” does not sound good and I can see that being made fun of at school (for example, teachers usually roll-call by using a student’s full name at the beginning of the year, etc.)

I know some people pronounce [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] a bit differently, but I personally wouldn’t use it because of both teasing potential and how it might be pronounced at school, work, etc.
