I love both names but am unsure which one I prefer? Would love some honest opinions thanks x

I love the name Tatiana (spelled like this). It's beautiful.

Not so keen on Tova. Sounds like a car/shoe brand.

I know a few Tovas, I think it's lovely. Rather depends on your last name - I think Tova is more versatile. Tatiana needs an interesting last name, you can't be Tatiana Johnson.

Hi, our last name is rather long and foreign if that makes any difference. Thanks smile

Tova's cute.
Round where we are Tatiana is slang for prostitute. Sorry!

I like both. I think I'd go with Tova/Tove with a long complicated surname though.

Tatiana is lovely (this spelling, no second n).

Not a fan of Tova. It sounds incomplete or made up.

Tova's a nice jewish name. I don't like Tatiana, it sounds a bit fake unless you or your DP are Russian. If it's a traditional name in your culture then it's fine.

I like Tatiana. Also Tara, Natasha, Talia.

Purplebluebird Wed 15-Mar-17 09:25:23

I prefer Tuva smile Tatiana is fine too.

Elbi Wed 15-Mar-17 10:32:22

I love Tova. Like the strong meaning too - isn't it 'beautiful thunder'?

GreedyDuck Wed 15-Mar-17 12:01:26

I prefer Tove (pronounced similarly but not quite) - as in Tove Jansson, the creator of the Moomins.

Sophronia Wed 15-Mar-17 15:45:03

Tatiana (this spelling)

Alyosha Wed 15-Mar-17 16:14:11

Tatiana is lovely.

What nn? I'm assuming Tania?

Sophiet1908 Wed 15-Mar-17 17:14:01

thanks for your suggestions x still deciding though confused

DramaAlpaca Wed 15-Mar-17 19:07:35

Oh I do like Tova. I've never heard it before.

I'm not quite so keen on Tatiana.

EssentialHummus Wed 15-Mar-17 19:09:33

Not a fan of Tova - in Hebrew it's the female form of "good", which seems really boring. Prefer Tatiana, nn Tania.

i like Tove- DS has a friend called Tove. Tatiana is the 'correct' spelling, Tatti-Anna (tatty anna) is less good spelled the way you have done it, like 2 separate words, tatty and anna

hoddtastic Wed 15-Mar-17 19:24:34

or Tatjana

I love Tova smile

My daughter's middle name is Tove. We pronounce it two-va, like a Yorkshire man referring to his vacuum cleaner. I love it and sometimes wish we'd gone for it as a first name.

Dislike both. Tanya/Tania?

Both are lovely and you spelling of Tatianna is lovely too. I guess it would make me stress 'Anna' rather than 'Anya'. IYSWIM

Really nice names!
