    Looks silly, I'm afraid. And why bother? Abby works just fine as a nickname for Tabitha. There's no need to make up a new name.

    Agreed. I much prefer Agatha or Tabitha to Abitha (without the "T", I instinctively say it ah-BEETH-ah, which I don't like anywhere near as much as the soft TAB-ith-ah).

    To me it looks like someone left the T off of Taibitha, I don't care for it.

    I also see only a Tabitha missing her T. I dislike it.

    Hmmm, Abitha feels a little awkward for me to say, but I think I could get used to it if I heard it on a child and it wouldnt sound terribly made up.
    Tabitha could easily use the nn Abby too.
    I have an Abisha (male) way back in my family and I always thought that was interesting sounding.
