    I had the same reaction as that ^.

    Philomena is very striking and beautiful.

    I've said this to people before and they have gotten offended so I hope I don't offend you....but you could always use it for a pet if you love it a lot, but don't want to use it on a future child. :/ I have a cat now with a GP name and I will definitely have more pets in the future that will probably get GP names or names of my favorite characters like Katniss or something.

    What about Philomela? Avoids' Mena' as a nn and still has a lovely meaning (lover of sweetness).

    Yeah, I have thought of that for other names, like Gypsy or Keitha, but I don't know if I could ever give up Philomena for a pet. Maybe a character for a story, but I couldn't for a pet.

    Well, then she'd be called Mel, which I hate even more! lol I kind of came to terms with Mina, but then I researched that Saint Philomena was pronounced pheel-oh-may-nah, so Mena (may-nah), Mae, or even Phila (pheel-ah) wouldn't be so bad. Besides, I love that it has double meanings of lover of strength and lover of singing, since one of my passions is singing. Don't get me wrong, I love sweet things like candy, but singing definitely tops candy. :P

    Singing totally tops candy - Personally I think Philomena is a superb name (and i like phil-o-may-nah as a pronunciation, too!). And if she wants to be quirky later in life she can go by "phil", lol.
