I love the name Tally as a nickname!

aleerakate Says:


Talia is also the name of Sleeping Beauty in the original tale.
I love the history of this name but I feel that it sounds modern which makes me like it a little less, I feel like people don't see it as a historic name, which for some bizarre reason, bothers me.
They can't appreciate it properly if they see it as a modern name! Haha

I love the name Talia so much i called my third baby girl Talia Hope! Such a beautiful name for such a beautiful, special little girl born premature due to my water breaking 5 weeks early, hence the name Talia (morning dew:from heaven) 😍

I'm really surprised this isn't in the top 100. I know it's not really Olivia or Mia but this name is very consistent.

TaliaCat Says:


You mean "genitalia"? My name is Talia, and I have never been teased with that... The pronunciation is different. TALIA is pronounced "TAH-lee-ah" not "TAY-lee-ah", so I don't think that would be an issue... But interesting that the name Talia made you think of that!

Hailey Says:


Geni-teasing? As in, people might confuse Talia for a boy's name? I have never heard of a boy named Talia in my life.

FantasyandPrayer Says:


Very, very pretty

wavygirl Says:


Talia ROX!

wavygirl Says:


Huh? Sorry, that doesn't make sense.

Daiseymae Says:


I think so too.

Saffron_Rice Says:


The spelling Tahlia shows the pronunciation better and saves the name from geni-teasing.

AleeCat0 Says:
