Comments for TALITHA:

I think this is a lovely old-fashioned name. It was my great-great-great-grandmother's name, and I know of only one other person who has this name.

I love this name so much! My friend named her daughter Talitha Cumi (Cumi being the middle name) because she was born with lots of defects but still lived. I think that's a wonderful name, as weird as it is.

Talitha is a beautiful delicate name for a girl, one she could easily grow up with.

If I ever have a daughter her name will be Talitha. I love it so much. I think this is a strong name. "Little girl arise". Beautiful! Beautiful!

I have only met 1 person named Talitha. She was a horrible, mean, I'm-so-good, it's-all-about me. When I hear it, I hear the word "lethal" (from litha in the name). It has a very sharp edge too it.

I think it is very beautiful-sounding.

Hmmm. Personally this name gives me an impression of timelessness, and its meaning is refreshing too. Still (at least to me), it wouldn't do well on someone who's pessimistic all the time (they'd have "aged" inside, a perfectly ironic contrast to the youthful meaning of the name).

Talitha refers to two stars in the Ursa Major constellation, Iota Ursae Marjois, known as Talitha Borealis or the "northern Talitha" and Kappa Ursae Majoris, known as Talitha Australis, or the "southern Talitha."

I really like this name. Talitha sounds quite old-fashioned, but it's still very sweet and youthful. The meaning - "little girl" - sounds cute.

Talitha is my name, so naturally I love it. We pronounce it Tuh-lee-thuh, and it is near impossible to make fun of. Everyone I've met loves my name too, so even though it's difficult to pronounce for some, it seems to be quite catching once they have it down. However, I've been called Tal-i-tha, Tabitha, and even Ta-lee-thia, so many people need to hear my pronunciation a couple times. Anyways, I think it's a likable name- if it suits the person.

My Dad named me Talitha because he and my Mom had six boys before they finally got a girl, so they wanted my name to mean "little girl." I think it's really sweet. We pronounce it tuh-LITH-uh, and no one ever says it right the first time, but it amuses me more than anything else, so that's okay. ;)

This is a beautiful name. I love everything about it. It's such a pretty, uncommon name.

I know a Talitha and I've always loved her name... it's so cute just like her.

It is more commonly pronounced tə-lee-thə.

It literally means, "Little ewe lamb."

It is http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?strongs=H2922&t=KJV with a feminine & diminutive ending.

TALLY is an American English nickname.

TABITHA would be an excellent twin name.

In Brazil's Portuguese we used to write this name Talita or Thalita. But we pronounce both of them tuh - lee - tuh.

I find it a sweet name with a hopeful meaning. If it came out of Jesus' mouth, it must to be good.

This name doesn't mean "little ewe lamb" it means "little girl" in Aramaic.
