    I like Tobias – I think it’s different and kind of cool. But I really don’t like Toby, and I don’t like that Tobias sort of has Toby as a really obvious nickname. Toby’s my dog’s name, and it’s a really common pet name, so I have the hardest time seeing it on an actual person – especially an adult. It’s cute for a kid or animal, but it ages horribly, to me. I have a friend who’s been going by Toby for a few years, and I’ve never been able to take it seriously on an adult man (I mostly call him by an old nickname that he’s still okay with instead). That’s just how I see the name, though.

    What about similar -ias names like Elias, Zacharias, or Matthias? Or maybe something along the lines of Julian or Gabriel?

    Congrats! I agree with TheWishingStar, it’s different and kind of cool! I used to like the name Tobin nn Toby, but I didn’t see it aging well :/ I like the above suggestions…also: Ezra, Matteo, Atticus, Leo, Felix, Jonah, Levi, Micah, Henry, Silas, August, Gideon, Elijah? Good luck!

    Tobias isn’t really my style but Toby is cute. I actually think it works really well with Evangeline. Toby and Evie are kinda close though.

    I like it. I do like Tobin or Toben as well. I think it works well with Evangeline/Evie too.
