    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, 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!

    Thais is pronounced Tie-ees, as in the opera. It is very pretty but I can only think of the opera connotation. It's better used as a middle, if at all, in my opinion. How about Isolde as a substitute? It has the same sort of feeling to it, only a bit more usable...

    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 Jeanne
    Thais Lydia
    Thais Jane
    Thais Ivy
    Thais Colette

    Or long:

    Thais Elizabeth
    Thais Aurelia
    Thais Josephine

    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.

    @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!
