Do you like either...also could you suggest more names in a similar style?

I like Biba but not keen on Hebe I'm afraid. Phoebe?

Hebe is ok. Biba sounds like an electronic noise.

Biba is fabulous.

I was at school with a Biba who was Edwina in full. The nickname a squillion times cooler than the full grin and suited/still suits her.

Hebe is a plant, isn't it? Not My Style.

DD2 was known as Biba when she was younger. It was a nickname based on her real name.

Someone did once ask me if we'd named her after the 1960s department store.

Biba is a 60s/70s clothing label which is still on sale in House of Fraser as a retro line. Google it. I really wouldn't use it as a name.

As others have said Phoebe is a good alternative. It was my GGG GM's name who was born in 1820.

Hebe is beautiful and botanical.

Hebe jeebies sad

Biba is ok tough

DS1 has a Biba in his class who he insists is called beaver.

Bt I do think Biba is a lovely name, not so keen on Hebe - as in heebeegeebees?

I love Hebe, but Biba sounds short for something else.

wiltingfast Tue 26-Feb-13 23:28:34

No

Hebe is garden hedging.

Biba is a clothes label.

One would be fine. You're not having twins though, are you? Together they sound like a baby's babbling.
