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!

Prefer Phoebe.  Georgia is OK as well. Alyssa Mae is gorgeous wub.gif (sorry, not very helpful!)

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

#23 babymojo

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.

#25 tres-chic

Phoebe.

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