Our favorites have to be Marco (from Latin, meaning ‘warlike’), and Rocco (Italian origin, meaning ‘rest’). We love these names because they’re concise and offer balance to the multi syllabled and continental sounding Sebastian.

But remember – these are just our picks. Now it’s your turn for brainstorming to come up with your own perfect middle name!

Why is a middle name important?

A middle name comes with untold benefits. Apart from giving your child a sense of individuality, it also influences how they’re seen by others, helping them to feel more comfortable and secure.

A name in the middle position can personalize a child’s name more, especially when chosen to remember someone close to the family.

Fluctuate the number of syllables in each name. A short middle name can balance out a long first and last name sequence while a long one can complement a shorter first and last name.

A middle name can also help set your child apart from others with the same first and/or last name.

How to pick a middle name

Consider your intention when picking a middle name. Are you aiming to honor a dear family member, choose something that just sounds right with their first and last name, or offer your child something a bit more radical and edgy? 

While looking for a middle name that flows nicely, choose one with consonants and vowel patterns that match the first and last names. 

If first and last names are lengthy, contemplate a shorter middle one. By the same token, if first and last names are short, a longer middle name will make a better fit.

Choosing a middle name is like designing your baby’s nursery; despite all the expectations for matching patterns and colors, ultimately it just has to sound right for you.

Honoring a loved one – preserving family tradition

What better way to show an uncle or late grandparent how much they mean to you than through your child’s middle name?

Honoring a departed loved one is easily the most popular way of choosing a middle name these days. Picking the name of a favorite grandparent, aunt, uncle, or someone who has played an extra special part in your life, is a sure way for your child to remember them.

Parents sometimes give mom’s maiden name to their child as a middle name, bringing mom, dad, and the family closer together.

If you’re from a cultural background, maybe go for a middle name that pays tribute to your heritage (or the place you were born) while helping Sebastian feel connected to his family roots.

Perhaps examine your family tree to find an ancestor with an unusual or colorful name that could also provide your child (Sebastian) with a sense of his family history. Sometimes an ‘old fashioned’ name can sound trendier than you think!

Middle name to nickname

Kids love nicknames as they’re unique and personal. They usually originate within small groups of children, quickly becoming symbolic of how your child is seen within that group. Together, through their nicknames, children can develop a bond of intimacy and trust – two important traits on the journey to shaping long term friendships.

Nicknames can sometimes prove really handy in the classroom, especially if the teacher is struggling with two or three little Franklins (Frank, Franky, Franko), or Penelopes (Penny, Pip, Poppy)!

So long as it’s short and sounds good, doesn’t confuse or offend anyone, and isn’t a name the school bully can make fun of, then a nickname can be heaps of fun.

About the name Sebastian

Sebastian is a Greek name meaning ‘venerable’, or ‘revered’. The name is widely known due to Saint Sebastian, a much loved saint within the Catholic church regarded as the patron saint of athletes, archers, and those who desire a saintly death.

The name Sebastian is now one of the 20 most popular boys names in the U.S., and among celebs who’ve chosen this classy name for their sons are actor James Spader, fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, and actress Kim Fields.

With its rich history, natural flow, and hint of sophistication, expect to hear more of the name Sebastian in the future.

Wrapping up

So there we have it. We hope you find the name in our list that you’ve been looking for, if not, then let your browsing transform into some serious brainstorming of your own!

Our list is by no means exhaustive, but although it might feel daunting, you may be closer than you think to discovering that elusive middle name for Sebastian.

Happy hunting, parents!
