Hi there,

The title says it all really. We have finally whittled it down to our final two and would love to gauge opinion on them.

Thanks in advance x

I really like Natasha.

Natasha; though I think Talitha is more unusual

Natasha. I like Talia, not Talitha.

I love the Russian form of Natalie, which is Natalia. NN Talia or Tallie. french version is Natasha. I have a Tallie it suited her as a baby, toddler and now as a young woman smile beautiful names whichever you choose.

I love Natasha.

Talitha is unusual and pretty though.

I'd just worry that Talitha sounds a bit like Talisa said with a lisp. Having said that, I think it's very pretty.

Not Thalia bad name. Sounds made up.

Natasha ok

Natalia nice.

Talitha definitely, very cool, reminds me of Talitha Getty.

I really like Talitha. Natasha is nice too, but Talitha's that bit more unusual.

Never heard of Talitha only Tabitha which I quite like.

How do you pronounce Talitha? Is it TAL-ith-a or Tal-ITH-a?

Homerun23 Sat 20-Feb-16 19:38:52

TAL-i-tha - basically like Tabitha but with an L! It means little girl and is an ancient name from the bible. In Arabic I think it also means "third" and it is our third baby!

Thanks everyone who has commented so far x

Love Talitha! I read a terrible book with a Talitha in it once and she was described as a great beauty so that's an association for me now - Talitha = beautiful!

I like Talitha now I know how to say it. I would have said Ta-lee-tha which I didn't like.

I would expect to have to correct pronunciation quite a bit but I wouldn't let that put you off.

Natasha - under used name in my opinion smile

Love Talitha.

I know a couple - one who is Brazilian and pronounces it Tal ee tuh and the other Tal ee thuh. Both with emphasis on the ee sound.

Talitha. It's unusual & suits a baby or adult.

What did you go for in the end? I have a Talitha, such a pretty name, though everyone demands an explanation for it blush

ABitAsleep Wed 11-May-16 16:25:33

I Prefer Talia over both of them, but Natasha, is lovely and underused these days. I'm not keen on Talitha, it just looks a bit made up.

Totally biased towards Natasha as its my name but its the best name grin
