    Since we had our first one, we've always referred to our second as Sebastian. So the name has been with us for over a year. But recently we also agreed on Sam (Samuel)

    DH and I just don't agree on boys names at all.

    Anyway, all was decided that he would be Sam and now I just don't know.

    I pretty much know the answer to this poll but am doing it anyway - which do you prefer?

    Sam(uel) or Sebastian

    Thanks!

    I voted before I read your post :blush:

    I like both but voted for Sebastian because it's on my list and OH has vetoed it. I know two or three Sams but no Sebastians so it's a bit more unusual for me.

    Both names are lovely!

    I'd go with Sam(uel). It has a cool name and nickname rolled into 1 !

    I'm torn!

    I love Sebastien (voted for Seb) but I think Sam goes really well with Max.

    Sebastian - I am in absolute love with this name, if we have a boy next time around I am hoping to use this name.

    Samuel is a great name, and goes wonderfully with Max.

    I think Sebastian is a bit long with Max, but Max and Seb sound quite cute together too.

    Wow, the results have actually surprised me. Well it's no surprise Sam came out top but I didn't think Sebastian would be quite so close. Still got me thinking
    We've decided to wait until he's born and then choose from the two names!
