So SIL stole our baby name! shock

We mentioned Tabitha as our choice of name and she the bitch went and registered her unnamed new daughter as Tabitha. Growl.

Can you suggest anything similar? It's definitely a girl so we only need girl names.

Thank you smile

But Talitha might be just a wee bit too close for cousins... smile

Matilda and Tallulah are lovely, Matilda will definitely be going on the short list!

I knew a Tamlyn once, always thought it was a pretty name!

FuturePerfect Wed 28-Nov-12 20:34:55

I know a Petronella - Nella for short.

MisselthwaiteManor Wed 28-Nov-12 20:36:22

I'm liking Claudia and Arabella, Matilda is my favourite so far though.

Thanks for the link Molotov that's fab smile

Marian - I have had slightly psychopathic thoughts but I decided to just get over it, I still have a niece with a beautiful name if not my own daughter!

Tabitha is so dreadful, your sil has done you such a favour. what about beatrix or Claudia? Eliza is lovely too. Christabel is fabulous.

What a cow! I have a Tabitha and I'm having another girl in 10 weeks so I am in a similar boat. I LOVE Thea but have a friend with a daughter called Thea. Plus it's quite similar really. How about that?
I do love Matilda and Mathilde too.
Martha?
Our short list is Ada, Claudia and Edie. I love Romilly too but DH has vetoed.

Before reading past the title I thought Matilda too!
