    My Baby Girl Name Epiphany

    I am due anyday now and I thought I had my name all picked out until I came across the name Teddy for a girl. I fell in love. However, I'm not sure if its just the hormones, am I crazy? PLEASE HELP ME AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINKOF TEDDY FOR A GIRL!

    I think if you give a girl the same name as a piece of lingerie, you're dooming her to a hellacious middle/high school experience.

    Sorry to rain on your parade. I think Teddy is a cute name too, but it's a tough world out there.

    I agree that Teddy could lead to teasing and sounds like a nighty.
    What about
    Tillie - short for Matilda
    Tansy - short for Anastasia
    Tally - short for Natalie
    Tessa, Tessie - short for Theresa or could just be Tessa
    Tati (Tah-tee) - short for Tatiana
    Freddy - short for Frederica
    Hattie - short for Harriet
    Lulah - short for Tallulah
    I just love Tillie, short for Matilda!

    I second what Melissa said, and emphatically so! :-) What other names were you considering?

    I actually really like the name Teddy for a girl!
    With parents using name like Frankie, Georgie, Maxie,
    why not Teddy? Clover is really cute too.

    Are you still considering Teddy? I grew up with a Theodora (nn Teddy), so perhaps you could go with Theodora...

    You could name your daughter Theodora and call her Thea. Or you could name her Anthea and call her Thea. Also I love Clover. I'm still not liking Teddy because of breasts and nighties. But if I don't think about the similarity to breasts and nightgowns, Teddy is kind of cute. By the way, does anybody know if Anthea pronounced ANN-thee-uh or ANN-thay-uh? I've always wondered.

    Susan, I've always said AN-thee-ah, since it derives from Anthos (An-?th?s, meaning flower). It just seems sort of logical to me, anyway. I've never been told I was wrong, anyway. :D
