Opinions please...

S'all right. smile So long as you don't spell it Thizbe (yes I do know someone whose name is Thizbe)

i have taught too many hilarious lessons to y8 boys pretending to stab themselves screaming 'die Thisbe die' to take it seriously I'm afraid!

Also, not if your surname is Wall. Or if you already have a Pyramus.

Makes me think of Bottom et al in Midsummer Night's. Couldn't take it seriously. Sorry

You know she's going to be called Frisbee, right?

Too much like Frisbee for my liking. Nah.

Gah.

Fine.

Immediately made me think Frisbee.

I thought you'd decided on names smile

Nup.
She's arrived and none of them suit her.

The ones I like DP doesn't and the ones he likes I don't. sad

The story is just treated so crudely by the mechanicals in msnd that it feels like a comedy name. Circe and phoebe have a similar feel without seeming a joke name.

Oh, what had you come up with so far? And what does she look like then?

Congratulations! Let us know what you decide, or if you want any more suggestions!

Charis? Hermione? Esmeralda? Beatrix? Persephone?

Hang on,I'm going to start another Fred....

Actually Phoebe would go very nicely with your other two names. smile

No,it's far to popular.

I know a Thisbe and it is gorgeous! Don't think the mum regrets it at all, often gets comments on how pretty it is.

It's lovely as long as you're not in London. 'Fizzbee' is not so pretty.

Congratulations!

If you like Thisbe, what about Mopsa?

Iphigenie? Nn Ginny. My DH won't let me have it.

Sounds like frisbee, sounds like something said by someone with a speech impediment, I'm not even sure how you pronounce it anyway, please tell me?
