Thoughts on this name?

IllMetByMoonlight Thu 17-Nov-16 18:31:38

I'm assuming it is for a baby? A bit "made up", perhaps? Would it be pronounced T-Asia (as in the continent) or TAY-see-ah? I come across a lot of unique names in my profession and what they have in common is that the children whose names they are, are all experts at spelling their names and correcting mispronunciation. Which I imagine must wear thin at some point.
But if you like it, and if it carries a significance to you, then go for it.

Sounds like Tazer.
Don't like it sorry.

GrumpyOldBag Thu 17-Nov-16 18:36:57

Short for Anastasia, maybe?

LunaLoveg00d Thu 17-Nov-16 18:37:20

Taser or Tizer.

Very made-up. Tania is good though, and underused.

I watched a program and there was an adorable girl named Taysia in it Tay-ze-ah. It made me really like it but obviously I suppose as a name it's not exactly liked then!

A little Welsh girl was named it on secret life of 4 year olds. Pretty name.

One of the little girls on Secret Life of Four Year Olds is called Taysia. I'd never heard of it and assumed it was Welsh (as the girl is). I'm not sure about it. Maybe Anastasia, as PP suggested?

EssentialHummus Thu 17-Nov-16 18:40:31

X-posted with you both! Is it actually a Welsh name, anyone?

Pluto30 Thu 17-Nov-16 19:19:53

I would've said "Taysha", as in Fantasia.

I don't like it.

panad317 Thu 17-Nov-16 19:26:47

No it's not a Welsh name

yeOldeTrout Thu 17-Nov-16 19:35:52

I like it... in fact, you've just inspired me to try to facebook friend a somewhat-lost cousin with same name (your spelling is prettier). My cousin was born about 1978. She's a rich person working on Wall Street (but that's not the reason to FB friend her, ha).

atticusclaw2 Thu 17-Nov-16 19:38:24

Surely it's short for Anastasia?

yeOldeTrout Thu 17-Nov-16 19:39:06

wow, rumour was true. Just found a story about my cousin in the Wall St. Journal no less.

What was that about "made up names mean you'll have no success in life"...

MaccaPaccaismyNemesis Thu 17-Nov-16 19:39:15

I really like it, and the girl on the c4 is the sweetest little girl. If her Mum reads this she is adorable.

NoArtificialColours Thu 17-Nov-16 19:46:21

I like it because that little welsh girl sells it nicely. She is so cute and sweet.

caffelatte100 Thu 17-Nov-16 20:04:47

No, I don't like it.

cmxx Thu 17-Nov-16 21:46:00

I think it sounds pretty! The spelling does look madeup though, so maybe Taisia would be better?

No come to think of it, Taysia is fine. Love it!

Smidge001 Thu 17-Nov-16 21:52:07

pluto hmm.. I would never pronounce fantasia as fantaysha. That's odd..?! I would say fantayzia. Perhaps a sort of 'juh' (soft j) sound. Same with Anastasia.

PotOfYoghurt Thu 17-Nov-16 22:42:12

The little girl was so cute. 'I live very far away. I live in Wales. But that doesn't mean I am a whale, does it?'

JessieDoops Thu 17-Nov-16 23:15:00

Not too keen on the name, but yes... The little girl from SLO4YO was absolutely adorable.

PointlessUsername Thu 17-Nov-16 23:17:22

I think it's a pretty name.

KlingybunFistelvase Fri 18-Nov-16 11:35:15

I like it. Very pretty. A bit like Tansy.

KlingybunFistelvase Fri 18-Nov-16 11:40:17

Fwiw I prefer Tansy grin

PuppyMonkey Fri 18-Nov-16 11:43:03

Another one who saw Secret Life, so now adore the name because of the association with officially the sweetest girl around.
