I really like the name phoebe, but it's a tad too popular. Would like something with less of a chance of there being several she knows... Any suggestions for similar ish names?

I know these aren't much like Phoebe but its quite a 'flowy' name in my mind (I know what I mean, its not a bad thing honest grin) and these just fit in with it in my little world haha

Why is choosing a name so bloody hard?!

I'm not sure (except for Bea!) quite why these are similar to Phoebe, but to my mind they are.

Agree that Daphne would be great - such a lovely name and Greek origins like Phoebe

Other Greek/Roman sounding names are
Zoe
Chloe (as above)
Eleri
Althea
Lyra

Cordelia?

I've got a Phoebe...is it really that popular? Anyway, it means 'light' in Greek, as does Lucinda (Latin) which is another fave of mine.

LittlePeas have you encountered many other phoebes?
