Tobias is a really strong name. I like it very much. I hate Toby however. It grates on my ears and I don't know why.

I like the name, but I am a little concerned about the fact that it is Biblical, and Biblical names in general are pretty much a turn-off for me.

My sister wants to name her first son Tobias. I really like it, it's a timeless classic! Although I don't really like the nickname Toby, I prefer Tobias. Some names are good the way they are, they don't need a nickname.

I love this name, it is a formal name for an adult and for a boy, his nickname could be "Tobi," which I think sounds great as well.

I've always loved the name Tobias, and the only experience I've had in meeting one was great too. Most people don't seem to like the nickname Toby though which I don't understand because I like that as well, it makes the name less formal and the people bearing it more approachable.

When I told my friend that if I ever had a baby boy I would name him Tobias, she started to laugh at me and said "That poor kid!" But I don't care, and will have to agree with most of the comments here; Tobias is a wonderful name, and the fact that not many people have it makes it even better. I think some good pet names would be Toby, Tobe, or Tobes.

It's funny; I used to think this was a really weird name, but now I adore it! It's so masculine, intelligent and amazing. Simply amazing. Any boy would be lucky to have this name. During his childhood, he could call himself Toby.

Tobias Smollett (19 March 1721 – 17 September 1771) was a famous Scottish 18th-Century novelist, famous for writing such works as The Adventures of Roderick Random (1748) and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle (1751), which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens.

I also think this is rather a lovely name, and Toby is a great nickname. :)

This is such a good name! It sounds so nice, has a wonderful meaning, and I like the nickname Toby.

I first came across this name in the Animorphs series and at the start, it felt quite an unusual name, but it's definitely grown on me since and now I find it's a really nice, strong and natural-feeling name. One of my favourites.

A side-effect though of first finding this name from Animorphs (as previously mentioned as the boy who's stuck as a falcon) I will always associate this name with flying.

I am in love with the name Tobias. I thought Tobias is such a great name; too bad it is not popular in Hungary. (I like popular names.) I would totally give it, and by now, I do not even care if Tobias is not popular in Hungary (yet?). :) It is such a cute name!

I'm not a huge fan of this name. Seeing it for the first time, it's easy to mispronounce, and it also blatantly has the word 'bias' right at the end of it.

My younger brothers name is Toby; named after my father's best friend who died of cancer. I just love this name. It's sweet and boyish but it's nice and professional for an adults name. If I have children I would like to name my son Toby.
