Thread: Phoebe?

  1. #1

    Phoebe?

    So today DH mentioned that he likes the name Phoebe if we ever had a girl. I was a bit surprised because he's never really talked much about girl names that he likes. (We have twin boys so no need yet)
    What are your opinions on the name Phoebe? Does it seem classic, trendy, dated etc? What kind of girl does the name Phoebe make you think of?
    Our boys are Arthur and Jasper. Would a Phoebe fit in with them?
    TIA

    Love Phoebe! It’s unique but recognizable. I love that in Greek mythology Phoebe is the Titan goddess of brightness, very fitting because when I think of a girl with this name I think of her exuding brightness through all the stages of her life. I think this name ages very well. I think of Phoebe loving nature, sitting under trees and dancing in the rain. Phoebe also gives a witchy vibe, in a good way, herbs and flowy dresses. I also like the association with Friends, Phoebe was always my favorite character, she embodies a Phoebe; she doesn’t care what others think, always the individual.

    Phoebe is lovely and I couldn't think of a better name for a sister to your boys. I see it as vintage chic like your boys' names, slightly quirky and fun but with hints of gentleness and seriousness as well.

    I want to love Phoebe but have never been able to. The only one I've known was really cool and now does costume design for film and theatre. So I get a quirky, creative vibe from it. Goes great with Arthur and Jasper.

    I like it a lot — it’s adorable on a little girl but ages really well. I like the sunny associations and the upbeat sound.

    Thanks for all the replies! I'm glad to know that Phoebe gets so many positive reactions. I've always liked Phoebe but it's been in the background and I've never really seriously considered it. I think it's really sweet that DH likes it though and I definitely like it enough to use it if it was his favorite.
