As a sister to Eli and Aphra?? (Yes this is my second thread this morning blush)

We are finding girls names very difficult!

JanuaryJuniper Tue 14-Feb-17 10:28:55

I'm thinking they all tie nicely together with a biblical theme, not that that is a must.

Sounds fine to me, though a bit similar to Aphra...possibly. I don't like themes though. grin

I'm.getting tongue twisted saying those two names in my head. I'm saying things like Abita and Tapra, ect. No I wouldn't put those 2 names together, personally. Pheobe goes much better or to give you more biblical names.

I think Tamsin would go better.

I love Tabitha but it really doesnt go with Aphra sorry

Sparklingbrook Tue 14-Feb-17 12:56:42

Does it matter if they don't 'go'? confused

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 14-Feb-17 13:04:53

Absolutely. Sparkling. IMO, though. Its not really the fact that they don't go. Its not like having 2 completley different style of names eg Harriet and a Courtney. Its that they sound too alike and I think people would get mixed up saying them together.

Sparklingbrook Tue 14-Feb-17 13:08:54

I don't understand why it matters. You aren't welded to your siblings throughout life. confused How many times will they be said together?

I only learnt of this matchy thing in 2011 when I joined MN. I had my DC in 1999 and 2002. It never occurred to me to match their names.

It's my DD name smile

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 14-Feb-17 13:50:16

Love Tabitha, but not with your existing names.

Abetes Tue 14-Feb-17 13:52:07

I think they are too similar too. Sorry!

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 14-Feb-17 14:52:18

Love Tabitha.
I agree with Sparkling that it doesn't really matter if sibling names 'go' or not. (Unless maybe if you had something like Alexandria and Jane.) FWIW I think Tabitha, Eli and Aphra sound fine together.

indigo13 Tue 14-Feb-17 15:59:08

Yes the issue is that they sound too alike which would matter, but if it doesnt matter to you op then go for it

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 14-Feb-17 16:03:13

They're only similar if you mispronounce your th sounds surely though? Aphra and Tabiffa sound similar but Aphra and Tabitha don't (to me anyway)!

Sophronia Tue 14-Feb-17 17:06:15

Very nice

Jooni Tue 14-Feb-17 18:08:03

I think they sound great together, and I really love Tabitha!

reuset Tue 14-Feb-17 18:50:46

They're only similar if you mispronounce your th sounds surely though?

I don't mispronounce 'th' sounds. I just think they have a similar sound.

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 14-Feb-17 18:53:45

I didn't mean to imply you did reuset smile!

I don't think they sound similar. Not enough to put be off using them together at least.

reuset Tue 14-Feb-17 18:56:20

No, I agree. I don't think it's similar enough to prevent using.

crapfatbanana Tue 14-Feb-17 20:02:55

I think it's fine.

I love Tabitha.
