Kew Says:


Yep, the first syllable is strongly stressed, and the last syllable is "in". It's TOM-uh-sin.
I'm lucky enough to know a Thomasin. :)

TheNameHunter Says:


I love this name and its combination of strength and delicate femininity. I was wondering if anyone could suggest the right pronounciation. Is the emphasis on the first syllable, like Thomas? Is the last syllable pronounced "in" or "een?"

I 'discovered' this name while watching The Witch, and at first I thought it was perfect. It's old and unusual, but familiar. It's clearly feminine and yet not excessively so. And while it's a very distinctive name, it also appears to be quite conservative and understated in nature. Again, I thought it was perfect. But something about it was bothering me, and I soon realised that, not only does it resemble Benjamin, but it's also practically identical to the masculine surname Thompson in terms of sound. Add that to the fact that, realistically, a Thomasin in the 21st century would likely go by the male "Tom" or "Tommy", or maybe even "Mason" and, as a result, loathe as I am to admit it, I actually think this makes for a better boy name. Which is quite upsetting. Maybe I'll be able to get over it (I'm kind of hoping I will) but, for the time being, I think it's just too masculine to work for a girl.

Not seen this name before. It is easier to see how Tamsin developed via this feminine version somehow. I used to think that Thomasina was the original feminine form of Thomas.

This is a recent find for me, and at first I thought it was a bit odd to have "Thomas" so clearly in a female name, but the more I think about this one the more I like it. It has a kind of dainty-yet-strong charm.
