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

I thought of Matilda too!smile That's weird - I wonder why Matilda and Tabitha are so linked in people's minds.

How about these?....

Ramona
Genevieve
Abigail nn Abbie
Iris - Greek goddess of the rainbow.
Angela

Hope you find something you love smile x

Sil robbed both my 1st and 2nd name for her son.But she doesnt like them now and also there seems to be loads of them[haha].
Im glad she got their first cause i dont like them and they wouldnt suit him anyway

How annoying!! I would still call her Tabitha, and just say "I did tell you that's the name we are going to use". wink

www.nymbler.com/ is a good site for putting in a name and it suggests similar names.

What a c-o-w.

How did she tell you that she'd registered her as Tabitha? Did she pretend she'd loved it all along?
