Am Due in 9 weeks with a little girl, she will be a little sister to Kaeden and Layla. These are our short list basically

Any Opinions please? I promise not to be offended grin

I like Tahlia best, gorgeous name... perhaps a bit 'la-la' next to Layla but no big problem. Is that how you spell Tahlia though? Looks wrong to me!

Alexia - not my cuppa tea but perfectly nice.
Willow - I wouldn't use this unless I thought my DD was going to be very long, tall and thin!
Ruby - has reputation of being very popular although I've only met a couple

I'm never sure how to pronounce Tahlia. Is it tah-lee-ya or tah-la or something else entirely?

I really love Willow. so pretty.

I thought it was Thalia? Which is nice. Pronounced Tah-lee-ah.

Thalia is nice IMO, Tahlia is a mispelling. The other three are very pretty names too.

Well I have to say Ruby as I have a Ruby, and she is the only one I know. No others at pre school in nearly 2 years !

Tahlia and layla too close.

Will just quickly point out that alexia is the term that's used to describe an adult that has forgotten how to read- so is the name of a disability (kinda like dyslexia etc)

Oh and my personal preference is willow- but I do love alexia nn lexie smile

I think Ruby goes best with your other DC's names

I was dead set on the name alexia for dd (due in May) but changed my mind once it got pointed out to me hmm still think the name itself is lovely though!

Willow is beautiful imo.
Don't like any of the others.

LadyIsabella, Tahlia is a variant spelling of Talia. It is a name of Hebrew origin, and it means 'dew from God'.

It is entirely unrelated to the Greek name 'Thalia'.

Just because you don't know a name, and it is similar to another name does not mean it is 'a mispelling [sic]' (cf. Rihanna, Kara, Neve).
