I'm liking Tabitha as a girls name but a bit worried that it sounds a bit pretentious - what do you think? Also not sure about Tabby for a nickname - does it sound a bit like a cat?!

I like Tabitha but not Tabby

I love Tabitha - it was nearly my DD's name - just makes me think of Tabitha Twitchit (Beatrix Potter cat) though. DD had a friend who called herself Tabby - I quite like that too.

I love Tabitha. The only one I know uses Bix as a nn. Not to everyone's taste, but it suits her.

not my cup of tea

MrsMcCluskey Tue 14-Jul-09 09:43:07

I like it

LadyPinkofPinkerton Tue 14-Jul-09 09:45:44

I love it DH will not allow it

I always think of the daughter from bewitched smile.

It is a bit catty but it's also very nice, I like it.

Glad LouLoves.. said that! A few years ago a friend of mine told me that his niece had been named Tabitha and then looked at me and said Why does everyone start twitching their nose when I tell them?? Made me feel very old. But there are a few of us nose twitchers still out there - bewarned!

I'm a nose twitcher too. Not too keen I'm afraid, but I've come to the conclusion that you are NEVER going to find a name that everyone likes, so just go with what YOU like

I have a Tabitha. We call her Tabs or Topsy for short and she called herself Tatta for a while when she couldn't say Tabitha. Lots of people tell me it's a name for a cat but I don't mind. I like cats. I'd rather have a cat's name than a warthog's name, IYSWIM.

is quirky. I really like it.

MadreInglese Tue 14-Jul-09 13:37:55

I love it

If you like it, go for it-that's all that matters! There'll always be people who hate/love a name....

I once knew a really cool Tabitha at school.....

Sorry for the hijack, but loulovesaeroplanejelly - where did your nickname come from?

BunnyLebowski Tue 14-Jul-09 13:41:50

I love Tabitha but don't really like Tabby, Tab or (weeta)Bix smile.

It's beautiful. Quirky without being wacko. And if it's good enough for SJP's new baby.......

seeker - well the first part is my name and then the rest is a slogan from home. Aeroplane Jelly is a type of jelly. This explains it better.

My dad used to sing the Aeroplane jelly song - it was on a radio commercial in the 30s when he was a little boy in Australia! I've never come across another reference to it - does it still exist?

jellybeans Tue 14-Jul-09 16:26:50

I LOVE it, great name.

LouLovesAeroplaneJelly Tue 14-Jul-09 16:48:47

It sure does. It it pretty much the only type of jelly you can get (well thats any good anyway)

nickelbabe Tue 14-Jul-09 16:59:25

I love it.

Like both names. And the nose twitching in the old tv series 'Bewitched' ALWAYS comes to mind when I hear the name, but that's no bad thing.
Tabby is very cute.
