    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.

    Thanks!

    I like Thomasina (this spelling) quite a bit, but I dislike Tempesta, sorry.

    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.

    Tempesta sounds like the newest Xmen villain.

    I'm not fond of feminizations either, but at least Tomasina sounds less like a joke.
    I'd prefer Teresita.
