    Smile Please help me to select a good name for my son!

    My son was born in 30th June, 2008. I am searching a good English name for him. Please give me some names. Please avoid to ask me to visit websites. I need your own selections.

    Re: Please help me to select a good name for my son!

    Here are some of the most popular baby boy names in the US in the past 20 years:

    James
    Robert
    William
    Jacob
    Michael
    David
    John
    Christopher


    For every name, there's also a choice of nicknames. For example, if you name your son "James," you can call him that or you can call him Jim or Jimmy. Robert might be Bob, Rob, or Bobby. William can be Will, Bill, Billy, or Liam.

    Congratulations on your bouncing baby boy!

    Re: Please help me to select a good name for my son!

    It is tempting to suggest "Banderas"... Just joking!
    How about Sebastian? I like it, to be honest. How does it sound to native speakers of English? What image can you see when hearing this name? Is it typical for English speaking countries?

    How about an original English name, as in Anglo-Saxon?

    Hi, Ron!
    How does "Sebastian" sound to your American ear?
    1. Funny?
    2. Neutral?
    3. SErious?
    4. Any other association?
    Is it a typical name in the USA?
