Thinking of names for our next little girl expected in July to go with our first DD Alyssa Mae (short one syllable last name).

So far names we like but dont love include Phoebe and Georgia. WDYT of these?

Other suggestions welcome!

Phoebe would be my pick.  I've always liked it, but have never met one.

I prefer Georgina to Georgia, but would still pick Phoebe!

I like both Phoebe and Georgia. If I had to pick my favourite it would probably be Phoebe.

Probably Phoebe but both are nms.

My sister is Phoebe. I really like it. I like Georgia as well, but I think Phoebe has more spunk and is more unexpected.

However, while most people wouldn't make this connection, I immediately think of Alyssa Milano who played the character Phoebe on Charmed.

I think Phoebe suits your first DD's name better than Georgia.
That said, I love the name Georgia - it was on my shortlist, but not DH's.

Georgia I love. Phoebe I have never much liked. There's something a little whingey about the sound of it for me.

#14 Littleone84

Phoebe is at the top of my list for when and if i have a girl one day. Unfortunately I will need to twist DP arm.

I asked this in a thread before I was pg (as we are Charmed and Alyssa Milano fans) but everyone replied they wouldn't make the connection. Seems you and I are on the same wave length haha

One thing bugging me about Phoebe is that up till 2 months ago I always thought it was spelt Pheobe, and now the real spelling looks wrong to me lol

This post freaked me out  a little.  I'm a Jorja and I'm thinking of using Phoebe for my little girl (due in May).   I never met a Phoebe either OP.

So, I like both!  You can't make a wrong decision in my book  biggrin.gif

#24 Will&Mae

Posted 21 February 2013 - 06:04 PM

Hmmm, not really sure. I think they are both fairly equal. Good luck deciding.

Phoebe.

But I like Georgia (and Georgina and Georgette) too.
