That's it really! I think Claudia is a bit more feisty but most people prefer Phoebe. I can't decide. DD 6 days old...

Claudia, I love!!!!! I like Phoebe too but it's the name of the dog we plan on rescuing and a not nice girl.

Both lovely.

Or you could split the difference and call her Chloe?!

Another Claudia fan here but I know people are often against it because of the meaning. I don't think that matters but some obviously do!

Phoebe is ok but I'm not that keen.

Phoebe sounds like Feeby. Somehow less nice

Good choice!
DS would have been Phoebe if a girl and baby #2 is due in June and will be Claudia if a girl!
For some reason we're not considering Phoebe this time
I love the idea of a toddler girl being called Claude as a nn

I like them both but Claudia makes me think of the little girl in Party of Five and she was annoying. Also nicknamed Claude. Still a beautiful name though and not many people will remember obscure TV programmes from the 90's (?).

Much prefer Chloe.

Another vote for Claudia, it sounds strong yet still cute for a little girl
