Sometimes parents make up names which, by chance, actually do happen to have existed at some time.

Census records show that the name was widely used for female children in the United States in the 19th century, and sometimes spelled "Feraba", "Pharaba", and "Pheraba". Records also indicate that all of these forms were corruptions of the earlier and more recognizable "Phoebe".
