Sebastian

revered
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 39
Despite Sebastian's origin in ancient Greece, it was the Christian Saint Sebastian who popularized the name across Europe and the Mediterranean. King Sebastian of Portugal, a crusader, continued the name’s Christian influence. The name also appears in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and The Tempest. Musical lovers will recall Sebastian Wilder, one of the star-crossed leads of La La Land, and Sebastian the Crab, a supporting character in Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Swedish DJ Sebastian Ingrosso is perhaps the most celebrated and iconic Sebastian today.

Wherever Ariel goes, so does Sebastian, a Jamaican crab, in “The Little Mermaid.” He’s devoted to and protective of Ariel and watches over her by order of her father, King Triton. Sebastian sometimes lives up to his species' name, but his grumpiness doesn’t take over his personality. He’s also sensitive about his tiny arms, and when he’s fearful of something, his voice becomes high-pitched.
