    Toby?

    Lately I really like Toby! But, I have a couple questions...

    1. Is there another way to get to Toby besides Tobias?

    2. Do you pronounce Tobias like toh-BYE-as or TOH-bee-as?

    3. What do you think of Toby?

    Thanks!

    Love Toby! I don't care for Tobias, personally, but I quite love Tobin, and I can see the appeal of Tobiah (although, in the Bible, he wasn't the best character, so I can never really seem to get behind it (or Tobias)). It's said toe-BY-ahs. There's also the more hippy-dippy October, with the nn Toby, but I prefer Tobin, personally, or even just Toby.
