My husband and i really like the name Phoebe but don't like the spelling. can anyone suggest a cuter spelling?

Gorgeous name, but I think any other spelling would look silly, e.g Feebee.

There's only one way to spell Phoebe. Creative spelling of baby names is a bit silly. Good luck!

Have you considered Caitlin?

My 5 year old niece is Phebe.It looked weird to start with but I am used to it now.

There's no other way to spell Phoebe that doesn't look tryhard and crap IMO.

Yeap stick to the original or LilacButterfly's Phebe is quite nice.

Phoebe is a lovely name but I only like it spelt traditionally.

Devi, you have me literally laughing out loud
I agree with the PP's that the name is gorgeous as is.

There is only one spelling of Phoebe for a good reason.

I tend to think the spelling is part of the name. If you don't like it, it's not the name for you.

In my opinion there is only one way to spell this name and that is Phoebe. If you spell it any other way it will just look silly and wrong.

Phoebe has 6 variant forms: Febe, Pheabe, Phebe, Pheby, Phoebey and Phoeboe.

I agree with PinkPrincess, there is only one way to really spell it. Change the spelling and she will have to spell it for everyone for the rest of her life!!!Emma

I think the traditional spelling is classic and beautiful, and to muck with it will make the name a lot less nice.
Posted 19 December 2007 - 07:51 PM
I love Phoebe and Phoebey - they are both lovely.
It looks silly with an "F"

Devi - LMAO!!!!
Just spell it properly, or choose a different name

Is there a reason you want it to be 'cute'?
It will be ok when she is small, but I am not sure that she will be overly impressed at 25 to explain that her name is spelt feeeebbeeeeee (you get my point) because her mother thought it was cute!?
Posted 20 December 2007 - 07:54 PM
Please dont! Just leave it to the traditional spelling, and save everyone the hassle!
I agree with the PP, your child will have to spell it for the rest of her life!!!! Sorry, this is my pet hate, people who want to change the spelling of names for no particular reason....."Phoebe" is 'cute' as is.

I agree with the pp, if you don't like the spelling Phoebe then choose a different name. How about Fiona? It's similar sounding.
