    Tamsyn & Bronte are my favorites, but I think Tamsyn wins.

    I like Tamsin. Tamsyn is horribly misspelled. Also, Bronte is pronounced BRON-tay, as anyone who's taken eighth grade English will know. If they want to name their daughter Bron-TEE (which I wouldn't recommend) they should spell it phonetically.

    ETA: I was still wondering about Bronte, so I checked Forvo and asked my mother (she's British and an English professor). She says BRON-tay is correct, but I heard both pronunciations on Forvo. Now I'm intrigued! I would say, though, that I'm probably not the only one who's going to struggle with the pronunciation -- and even aside from that, I wouldn't suggest using Bronte. It has more than an air of pretension about it.

    The Bronte sisters pronounced it Bron-tee. But I've heard people say Bron-tay before.

    I dislike it in any case.

    I'm rather fond of Tamsin. I have an adversion to unnecessary y's, but Tamsin Paige is very striking and by far my favourite.
