Fabian is not a common name that I hear very often in the States where I live.
I mean, it does have a vintage charm from the sound of it, but the meaning is a bit of a letdown in my opinion. :(
I'm trans and this is my chosen name. I think it sounds pretty cool and intelligent without being snarky like other names that can sound kinda stuck-up. Most people pronounce it properly as faye-bee-ann. Some of my nicknames are Fabi, Fabes, Abe, Fab, and Faye.
8-9/10 name. Timeless and awesome.
Coming from someone who has Fabian as a first name, it is nowhere near a good name. It may sound classy, but it is not professional whatsoever. Especially when you’re working in a field where the majority of the race are Caucasian and have normal names like Chris, James or Michael.

Fabian in Latin means ‘bean’, in contemporary Hungarian it means, ‘bean grower’.
I hope that will help those who are researching the surname.
As the other comments have noted time and time again, this is a truly remarkable and handsome name that is not overused which fundamentally adds to its charm.
Hard to hate this name.

Fabian Raymond Picardo is a Gibraltarian politician and barrister serving as Chief Minister of Gibraltar and Leader of the Gibraltar Socialist Labour Party since 2011.
Very handsome.
Sounds so classy.
I love this name! It has that classy vibe that I admire. It will suit almost every boy, so I’m really considering this for use.
Used by Shakespeare in Twelfth Night for a jester/comedian in Olivia's household. His talent as a voice artist makes him useful when Sir Toby and Maria are being unkind to the, admittedly horrible, steward, Malvolio.
I don’t even know why but this is my favorite name ever! Fabian suits all ages and sort of combines with the word fab(ulous)! It’s a teeny bit boring in a good way, maybe simple is a better way to say it, but for some reason I love it. It is also slightly rare and it complies with my religion of Christianity because of Saint Fabian. Although I dislike the nickname Ian (personally), nicknames could be decided later on! Future says it that for my child’s name, this is a very possible choice!

I am so in love with this name especially the fact that it is the name of my boyfriend. Hearing this name is like music to my ears.
This name is not a bad name by any stretch of the imagination. However, the meaning, “bean tiller”, is not an illustrious meaning by any definition. Still not a bad name, just not my cup of tea.
Handsome name.
I personally like this name, it sounds elegant. It's also my boyfriend's name.
I love this name for a little boy! It's third on the list of boy names for me.
