Phoebe was also the name of Holden Caulfield's little sister [from the book "Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger]. A very nice name. Original but not awkward, once you learn to spell it you can't get enough of it. =)

As another Phebe (spelled without the "o" - my mother said she had dumb relatives who'd pronounce it Phoby) I have to say I've grown to like my name. It has MANY literary references (those above, plus Louisa May Alcott's "Eight Cousins" has a Phebe, as well as Nathaniel Hawthorne's "House of Seven Gables" - I also own the books "The Book of Phoebe" and "Phoebe's Knee", and an original Gibson print named "Phoebe"), has the Greek mythological origins, Shakespeare, and a saint. Wonderful name!

And, when I broke my leg in 5th grade, my friends all called me Pheebles.

Phoebe is also one of Saturn's moons, and a type of bird. The name always makes me think of a bird. It's a pretty name for a girl.

Phoebe is the name of a character from 'The Memory Keeper's Daughter'. I must admit, this book is the reason I fell in love with the name Phoebe. It's soft and delicate but can also be strong and spirited. Phoebe is one of those names that don't just suit one type of person.

This was the original name for the character later called Lily Munster in the first pilot episode.

I think Lily and Phoebe would be great as twins!

I can't help but think of a stuffy old lady. Phoebe Wallingford from "All my children" or the quirky air head from "Friends" But it was also a hottie from the 80's, Phoebe Cates.
