Thoughts on Tempesta & Tomasina?
These two are battling it out in my head and I really need outside feedback. On one hand Tomasina glitters like an emerald (to me), while Tempesta is stormy weather on a Mediterranean beach. Yet I wonder if Tomasina is too "feminization of Thomas," and if Tempesta is just too strange for an American baby.

Tomasina is wonderful. I'm a big fan of Thomasin and Thomasine so I don't think it's too much - not any more than Josephine or Alberta or Louisa, which are super-usable.
Honestly, for me Tempesta is the name that's not subtle enough - all I can see is the word tempest with an a on the end. There's always teasing potential when a word is front and center, and tempest has mixed connotations. For an American baby, Tomasina feels safer.Girls:
