Talia (as in Tayar)
Jessica (dated?)
anne marie
Lydia Marie

(Faith Juliet is still my favourite, but I thought I'd see what people thought of these)

Jesscia is lovely classic name and cannot be outdated, best of the bunch IMO

Jessica is lovely, Lydia also v. nice. Not too keen on the others.

Jessica is the best of those names, IMO.

MumOfBaby Mon 23-Feb-09 13:55:46

Are people likely to shorten it to Jess or Jessi though? Hate both of those names but like Jessica.

jessica is lovely

talia, if pronounced as it should be, is also fab

SweetCheeksLovesSweetTalk Mon 23-Feb-09 13:56:29

It will get shortened. I like Jess

MumOfBaby Mon 23-Feb-09 13:57:01

I like Talia both ways. I don't understand why they're said different ways but they're the same spelling?

rubyslippers Mon 23-Feb-09 13:59:09

i have never heard it pronounced tayar only as

th - a - lia (soft sound)

or t - a - lia (hard T sound)

Being biased as I have a Talia (see other thread) would have to go for Talia, pronounced Tah-Lee-Ah.

To be Thalia would be pronounced Tha-l-ia Th as in think.

also like Hayley

I've only heard of it pronounced Taa-lia too.

Oh Good sweetkitty, you have one! Does she like her name? The baby name website I looked on had it pronounced as I put in the OP, but it makes more sense to be pronounced how you do it.

My Talia is 3 and I think it's a unique name for a unique child, she is very fiery and strong willed.

Some people do have problems with pronouncing it but I think they would have trouble with most names names IYSWIN, my Dad espeically winds me up, he still calls her Tal-yar which I hate, I am sure it won't be long until she corrects him.

Talia is a fab name go for it.

From your list I prefer Lydia, Talia and Anne (although prefer Anna).

I do find Jessica a little dated...nothing wrong with it, just doesn't sound as elegant as Lydia, Talia or Anna imo.

Don't like Hayley at all.

Anna is lovely
