Yes or no? Just can't decide between this and Matilda. Like the fact that Tabitha is less common as seem to hear Matilda a lot when at toddler groups. Also I want to use middle name Alice for family reasons and our surname begins with D so not sure I can use the initials 'mad'.

I think I'm having a boy anyway so probably won't be an issue but want to be prepared!

Personally I prefer Matilda of those two.
If I wanted a 3-syllable name beginning in T I'd choose Tallulah!!

Tabitha is lovely.

I like Matilda too, but think it is having a moment.

I dislike Tallulah for no other reason than I’m not keen on the lool sound in the middle.

Tabitha is one of my favourite names. Have yet to meet anyone called it though, whereas I know a few Matildas. I do like Matilda, but not as much as Tabitha.

Tabitha is lovely. Matilda has become too popular. Tallulah is too girly.

I really like Tabitha but for some reason it makes me think of cats

AnyaMoondial Fri 12-Jan-18 18:20:37

Matilda is awesome. I really love it. Tabitha is nice but Matilda is just brilliant.

Tabitha is a name for a cat.

I like Tabitha and Tabby is cute.
What about Tamara/Tammy?

Truthstar Fri 12-Jan-18 18:29:23

Really really love Tabitha!

FreddieClaryHorshieLion Fri 12-Jan-18 18:30:23

Prefer Matilda.

And I love the - in the U.K. rather uncommon - Tabea. Not sure why...

Fellia Fri 12-Jan-18 18:31:29

Love this name.

Both names for plump plain middle-aged cats.

girlwhowearsglasses Fri 12-Jan-18 18:45:39

I have a relative who has ‘Tabatha’ - so with an ‘a’. I love it

MikeUniformMike Fri 12-Jan-18 18:55:07

I don't.
How about Allegra?

Tabitha Alice is the name we have picked for ours if it's a girl so I think it's a great name! grin
I have always loved the name Tabitha and Alice to me is a magical name (in wonderland)

I agree the initials MAD aren't advisable, but I much prefer Matilda to Tabitha.

The fact I used to have a cat called Tabitha no doubt influences my thinking, but I just don't like it on a human. Sorry.

My first thought after reading the name Tabitha: 'that's a cat name'

dotdotdotmustdash Sat 13-Jan-18 01:09:51

I think of the daughter of Samantha and Darren in 'Bewitched' in the 70s.

It's cute.

Mrsknackered Sat 13-Jan-18 01:11:07

I love Tabitha. I only know 2 young adults called it

SuperBeagle Sat 13-Jan-18 01:12:28

I love Tabitha. I also love Matilda.

Matilda is far more popular than Tabitha, so that would probably swing my vote to Tabitha.

Tableauz Sat 13-Jan-18 01:29:29

I have a Tabitha and it suits her to a T (no pun intended). Quirky, individualistic and charming.

All these people saying it's a cat's name make me hmm though - lots of cats have "human" names. Tabitha is just a nice girl's name that people sometimes use for a tabby cat. It's not the same as calling a child Tiddles!

158ff Sat 13-Jan-18 19:38:45

Both! I LOVE the name Tabitha, I have both names on my list too

Bitsandbobsalot Sat 13-Jan-18 19:42:56

I adore Tabitha.

SnapesTears Sat 13-Jan-18 19:46:57

I love Tabitha. I like Matilda as well but Tabitha is way cooler.
