Comments for BELPHOEBE:

This, along with Astrophil, is one of the oddest names I've ever heard.

Absolutely love this name. Belpheobe (nickname: Belle) is one of my favorites. Definitely going to consider naming my daughter this in the future. So unique! =)

I roam this site often, but I hadn't come across this name until now. And I think it's fabulous. It is unusual, but contains many sounds also found in more traditional names.

The one thing I'm unsure of is the exact pronunciation.
BELL-FEE-bee, BELL-fa-bee (as I am currently saying it), bell-FEE-bee, or something else?

A beautiful name with a really nice meaning- "beautiful moon". The 'bel' part counteracts the rather harsh sound of Phoebe.

I would pronounce this name "bel-FEE-bee".

"Beautiful Moon" is such a lovely meaning!

Belphoebe is one of my favorite names to this day.

I love the meaning as well; I feel like Belphoebe is girlish and feminine, but still has such a strong, powerful feel to it, like she can be her own person and feels like it's got a lot of self-esteem, almost? I love that about it. I just think it beautiful. ^-^

This is an amazingly quirky and odd name, but not unlikeable, and it has such lovely meanings (which can be interpreted as "beautiful light" or "beautifully pure" or "beautifully bright"). Wonderful. :)

This looks rather ugly. Adding "Bel" to a name I already dislike as it is does not make it any better.

I think that the written name is what captivates, not the pronunciation. Spoken, the title consists of two very different, very dominant sounds "Bel," "Phoebe," which do not flow together in the least. A constant combat between them. The fact that it is not a very professional name is evident, as well. Pretentious? Yes. Perhaps even a bit geriatric? Quite. As a general rule, strict literature-created names have no place to leap from their pages and into reality.

Says who? Shakespearean names seem to do pretty well.
