Hi everyone,

I really love the name Natasha but my husband likes it but isn't sold just yet... So I am just testing the water with a few other names.

I quite like Natalia as I really like the nickname Tali, but then I have also liked the name Sylvie for a few years now. My husband likes the name Sadie, but with this one I feel a bit luke warm.

Any input (or other suggestions) gratefully received!

Thanks x

Natalia would be my first choice, followed by Natasha. I don't like Sylvie at all.

Natasha, then Natalia.
I really don't like Sylvie.
What about Nadia?

Afaik in Russia Natasha is a nickname for Natalia, so perhaps two names for the price of one?

Natalia is a lovely name, personally, not keen on Sadie. Isla and Iona are sweet too.

I like Natasha, then Natalia.

Sylvie is a bit faddy.

Natasha is my favourite of the list. Prefer Natalie to Natalia. Sylvie is a very different type of name to the other two IMO. Natasha and Natalia (well Natalie anyway) sounds 80's to me, the kind of names my friends at primary school had or women my own age now might have. Sylvie is more granny chic and trendy. I've come across quite a few babies under 2 called Sylvie but none called Natasha or Natalia.

How about Natalia Sadie (last name)?
Sounds really pretty and original and both of you are happy smile

Provencalroseparadox Mon 01-Feb-16 09:50:06

I love Sylvie

crispytruffle Mon 01-Feb-16 14:28:43

I like Sylvie!

GoldPlatedBacon Mon 01-Feb-16 18:49:22

Im still mystified by the Sylvie/Sylvia love on Mn - it was the name of friends mums when I was at school. They have friends like Sandra, Diane and Sue.

Any way, I prefer Natasha but I do like Natalia

grumpysquash2 Mon 01-Feb-16 18:52:37

I've met loads of school age Natasha's recently.
(My DD is Natalie. She has only met one other Natalie her age - she is nearly 13)

Thanks everyone for your input. Here's another option for you if that's ok...
Talitha - it means third leap in Arabic and we have some Arabic connections, plus this will be our third child (assuming it's a girl as we don't actually know but I have a strong feeling it is!!)

Also I love the nn Tali

Any thoughts gratefully received. I think Sadie and Sylvie are off the table now.

Thanks! x

grumpysquash2 Mon 01-Feb-16 21:41:31

Its very pretty smile Could be misread or mispronounced as Tabitha or Tulissa (former X factor judge), but no biggie....
What are your other two children called?

BlueBlueBelles Mon 01-Feb-16 21:46:20

If you like the nickname Tali and are going for a name to base that, don't pick Natalia. She will be Nat, despite all your efforts I fear!

Talitha is lovely

GoldPlatedBacon Tue 02-Feb-16 08:06:08

I like Talitha

redmini4 Sun 07-Feb-16 00:24:52

I prefer Talitha to your other choices. More unusual. Natasha if I had to choose between them.

ladybird69 Sun 07-Feb-16 01:13:53

I have a Natalia and she is Tallie to close friends and family,never ever Natty. It really suits her. You have 2 other of my family names in your list so obviously I love them.
I think Natalie is English
Natasha French version
Natalia Russian version
According to war and peace.
Hmmm I know a Talitha say no more. shockwink

Narp Sun 07-Feb-16 19:53:10

I think Nathalia is beautiful (I think I prefer that spelling, for some reason)


I really like Anita as well

And (this ones' a bit out there...)

Love Sylvie and Natalia/Natalie. Don't like Sadie at all, sounds too sad imo.

Talitha's most notorious namesake was Talitha Getty, very glamorous socialite but a heroin addict who died young of an overdose in 1970s. It shouldn't necessarily put you off, but as well to know the story. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talitha_Getty
