Struggling to decide between the two so thought I'd seek your opinion! Love both, my Phoebe is my favourite and Alice is my husband's favourite.

What's your vote? Thanks!!

Alice. Phoebe has become quite overused IMO. I prefer the simplicity of Alice.

Definitely Alice

I don't actually like Phoebe and I agree it's over used

I don't know any Phoebe's. My 3 year old would have been a Phoebe if he'd been a girl and we have 2 Alice's in our nct group.

Phoebe was 22nd last year and Alice 24th. So almost no difference in how commonly they are used. But Alice does feel like a much more boring name to me.

I love both. Phoebe being my favourite.

But Phoebe Alice <surname> works well imo.

I prefer Alice, but our DD is so I am biased.

I like both but prefer Phoebe slightly. I only know one I think. I know two alices but on end is an adult.

Agree with pp.

Phoebe Alice __ is gorgeous

I really wanted Phoebe for DD1, but husband not keen. Now there are 3 at her nursery. Alice is more timeless I think.

Definitely Phoebe. That was one of my 2 top girls names 🙂. That and Isla Xxx

They are both absolutely beautiful and have been on my name list since forever. Unfortunately DP's surname is awful with Phoebe so it's out of the question if we have a third baby. sad

I like both....

But I really like Phoebe Alice Last Name.

NeoTrad Sun 14-May-17 16:23:41

Alice is pretty. Phoebe is awful.

Enidblyton1 Sun 14-May-17 16:26:06

Love Alice. Phoebe is ok

kate1296 Sun 14-May-17 17:17:55

These were our two names we went with Alice in the end..both lovely but Alice is that bit more classic I think

Phoebe. Beautiful name. I agree Phoebe Alice sounds lovely.

Thatextrainch Sun 14-May-17 17:46:04

Phoebe. Alice is dire

It was my girls name with everyone of my pregnancys, finally got to use it for dc4.

And in 13 years of being a mum I've never heard another child called Phoebe
