Sebastian is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Sebastian.

What does a heavy metal singer, an animated crustacean, and a saint all have in common (and, no, this isn’t the start of a bad joke)? They all were named Sebastian, a name Shakespeare liked the so much that he used it two of his plays, The Tempest and Twelfth Night. While the name has a certain French-like quality to it, it’s actually of Greek origin. And never underestimate the power of Disney. The name had dropped out of the ranks mid-century only to reappear and gain in popularity most likely thanks to Ariel’s singing crab friend.
