80+ Awesome Nicknames for Sebastian

Do you need good nicknames for Sebastian? In the article, we share all the cute, cool, and funny pet names you can call a guy named Sebastian. But first, let us take a look at the origin of the name “Sebastian.”

Sebastian is a name that has a bloody history. The name started from the Latin word “Sebastianus” which was given to people who came from a town called “Sebaste” in Asia Minor. The name literarily means “from Sebaste.” However, the town’s name was derived from the Greek word “Sebastos” which means “venerable,” “awe,” “reverence” and “dread.”

The name Sebastian became widely used because of a third-century saint called Sebastian. He was martyred for being a Christian by Emperor Diocletian, whose first attempt of shooting arrows at him didn’t kill him. Saint Sebastian went to see the Emperor again in hopes of admonishing him, but he was beaten to death.

Later, the 16th century King of Portugal also bore the name. He died in a crusade against Morocco.
