Sebastian is a masculine given name with Greek and Latin origins, meaning "venerable" or "revered". The name is derived from the Latin word "Sebastianus," which refers to a person from Sebaste, a city that is now Sivas, Turkey. Sebaste has Greek origins and is derived from the word σεβαστός (sebastos), also meaning "venerable". The name Sebastian has a multifaceted background, with connections to ancient Greece, Rome, and Christianity. In ancient Greece, "Sebastianus" was a typical place name, and it was also the name of a respected Christian figure, Saint Sebastian, who was known for converting Roman soldiers. The name's association with Saint Sebastian, a third-century Christian martyr, contributed to its widespread use.
