I love the name Tabitha but can't decide if it sounds ok with 'Taylor'. What do you think? Oh and Please don't tell me it's a cat's name - it isn't! wink

I dont normally like first and surnames beginning with the same letter at all but it's not too bad.

I don't really like alliterative names so not keen, sorry.

I think it sounds great. One of instances in which alliteration sounds really good.

It's lovely.

You have to be prepared for Tab/Tabby from her mates though. Just in case. It may not happen, but if it does you have absolutely no control.

Love a bit of alliteration! Love Tabitha too, sadly DP doesn't angry

I would spell it Tabetha. Just putting it out there. Find it a bit softer for some reason.

I think the NNs Tab/Tabs/Tabby are one of the best things about the name!

Thanks everyone. I know you can't please everyone when it comes to names but I really appreciate your honesty and feedback. Think we might go for it smile x

Really like it, sounds great!

I know a tabby Taylor and she is fab. I've always thought it was a lovely flowing name.

BoreOfWhabylon Mon 07-Oct-13 22:35:30

Love it. Just make sure any middle name doesn't begin with 'I'.

SaucyJack Mon 07-Oct-13 22:35:57

Very glam!

Ham69 Mon 07-Oct-13 23:25:00

Fab. Love the full name and NN, both flow beautifully.
Agree with Bore though. Don't call her Tabitha Isobel, Tabitha Isla, etc. grin

Doinmummy Mon 07-Oct-13 23:30:04

Yes , def think about what her initials will be.

My DD is ARS!!

Have just googled and there is an "actress" called Tabitha Taylor. Not sure your daughter would particularly want to be associated with her but she'll have retired (or deflated) by the time your dd is old enough to be googling her own name!

Emmabombemma Mon 07-Oct-13 23:36:31

Ha ha bore that made me laugh grin. We are thinking of Jane or Rose for a middle name x

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 08-Oct-13 00:13:06

Good choices! grin

I love the name Tabitha and think it sounds great with your surname when said in full. However there was a girl at my school whose initials were TT and everyone called her Titty or Tits for short.

So make sure she has a great middle initial too!

Are you me?! Our Tabitha has one of those middle names and it's a great name to say when disciplining!

Emmabombemma Tue 08-Oct-13 18:06:14

Ha ha staceysmum I did think that when I was saying the names in my head!

Tabitha Taylor.
Tabby Taylor
Tabs Taylor.

All really lovely and roll off the tongue smile

As a side - We're not seriously TTC yet but I stupidly told my parents I liked Tabitha and my DDad turned up his nose immediately which has spoilt it for me lol

Lesson learnt!

TiffanyAtBreakfast Wed 16-Oct-13 16:30:42

Thinking about it, you might not want an 'A' middle name either unless you don't mind her being TAT! wink

Emmabombemma Fri 18-Oct-13 07:36:42

Thanks Tiffany. Yes we're avoiding A and I initials! ;-)

We've not told anyone about our names (both boys and girls as we are team yellow) in case someone puts us off. Once we've done it they will all just have to get bloody used to it won't they! Ha.
