These are partners favourite so im willing too give them a chance.

Freya, definitely.

Phoebe is lovely.

I know sisters called Phoebe and Freya. I'd chose Freya, much less popular, Phoebe is very well used.

No nicknames I can think if but they are supposed to develop naturally and may be nothing to do with your babies actual name.

I have a Phoebe and her two friends at nursery are both Freya and I know two other Freya's locally. I think both are lovely names but my local area is having a Freya boom so if still choose Phoebe.

Phoebe. (Because I really dislike Freya.)

Freya it's my favourite name in the world (and my DDs )grin

DD has a very good friend called Freya, DD's nickname for her is Frey-Frey, not sure if that's the kind of nickname you're after though grin.

Phoebe. Freya is very trendy.

reuset Mon 20-Jul-15 11:17:29

That's it. Noughties trendy, Freya!

I'd say the exact opposite to the PP, I know LOADS of Freyas and no Phoebes. I think Freya is a lovely name but very overused. It's almost as popular as Evie where we live.

Prefer Freya to Phoebe (don't like Phoebe at all actually). But Freya is popular if that bothers you. I don't know any Phoebes but have come across plenty of Freya's. It's definitely "on trend" at the moment.

There are zillions of Freyas now. I know one who became a goth as a teenager and changed her name to Flayer.

So, Phoebe. Which is a lovely name.

Both of those names are goddesses, maybe you could come up with some more names on the same theme you might both like? Athena, Artemis, Selene, Hera, there are loads.

I know lots of Freyas and a few Phoebes too. I like Phoebe more.

How about Frieda? Philomena?

Phoebe. You could nick name her princess consuela. That was a joke, but I do love Phoebe.

I know lots of Freya's.

Faye instead of Freya? Sorry not keen on Phoebe, dont like the sound it makes.

Phoebe, definitely.

Freya is quite faddy.
