I just wondered if an eye-catching/controversial title would attract hordes of Berries, ready to protest against the injustice of Bandage being used as a name. Don't panic. It's actually just the (possible) meaning of the name I'm seeking more information about; Thais or Taide. According to behindthename.com, this is an Ancient Greek name meaning 'bandage' (hence the title). So what does everyone think? It would be pronounced 'tie-ees' or 'thie-ees', I think, but please correct me if I've got that completely wrong... Is it usable as a middle? Or a first? What firsts or middles would you pair with it? Thank you!

Haha! I thought this was either a trick title or someone trolling us! 'Bandage as a name? Surely not!'
I think Thais is really pretty and would work as a middle or a first. I'd pair it with something a little plainer. Either go short:
Thais JosephineCurrent favourite girls names: Verity, Eden, Cliora, Antonia, Morwen, Catriona, Dervla, Colette, Sorcha, Tahlia, Lucina, Vita (as name or short for Victoria), Zabet (as name or short for Elizabeth), Nina, Kylara, Zelda

I didn't think it was a name, but maybe two parents fighting over a name? But the title did get my attention.
I think Thais sounds lovely, but for me, the meaning/significance is the top priority. I wouldn't use it personally, but I think it is useable.tea drinker + cat lover + ever-evolving baker+cook...positive realist who loves beautiful words, names, and images.
Feel free to ask me about Sanskrit-based names.

@whillemina - Thank you for clarifying the pronunciation - I am notoriously bad at saying names aloud, which has led to some embarrassment upon meeting people in the past... Oh, thank you, I had no idea about the opera (which is unusual; my dad is a complete opera nut), but just looked it up - I do very much like Isolde, but already have Iseult in one of my combinations. Otherwise, that would be a perfect suggestion - thank you again!
@namesgloriousnames - Haha, I thought that might be the reaction! Ooh, I really really love Thais Lydia and Thais Jane, as well as Thais Aurelia and Thais Josephine - thank you so much!
@jyoti - No, I think even a troll might think Bandage was a tad too far, haha! I'm glad you think it's usable though - I also base names mostly on significance, and so Thais would not be a possibility without family names as middles, certainly. Thank you!
