Comments for TAMSIN:

I think Tamsin is really nice. I think it's way better than Thomasina, 'cause it just has a sweeter sound.

Tamsin is a very pretty, sweet sounding name.

I found the name Tamsyn, for my daughter, in an old gothic novel. Her name is Tamsyn Janelle.

This is my name! A bother in school, because I always get the question of, 'What's that, again?' and it's terrible when it comes to spelling, even though it's pretty straight forward. I get it taken as Jasmin, Tasmin, Tamara, Jasmina, Tasmania (the worst), etc.

Yuck! What a hideous name!

I like it. For a nickname you could use Tammy.

I really like Tamsin, but I don't like the possible nickname of Tammy. I would probably use Sunny as a nickname.

This is my name as well. I think it's ok, my mother named me it as it meant twin on the version she learned. But I also get people making mistakes - most common is Tasmin. Which is not nice! And if people have to shorten it, it's shortened to Tams, as I don't like Tammy!

Yes, Tamsin does mean "twin", but in a kinda backward way. Tamsin is a contraction of Thomasina, which is a feminine form of Thomas. Thomas is the Greek form of the Aramaic name Te'oma, which means "twin". So, ultimately, Tamsin means "twin".

I like this name a lot and it certainly isn't overused in the US. I first heard of it in high school. Character named Tamsin, short for Thomasin, in the novel The Return of the Native which we read. Don't like the nickname Tammy though.

One Word. Tampon.

Tamsin does not sound like tampon!

Very ugly, I guess. Thomasina is kind of better even though they're both ugly & strange. Nickname Tammy just annoys me. Thomie could work.

Wow, this is a name I've never heard of. It has a nice British ring to it. It's not ugly; in fact I think of a character who is strong, assertive, funny, loyal and a bit crazy, but it all adds up.

My name is Tasmin, and I get this, Tasmine, Jasmin, Jasmine, Jazzmine, Tazmin, Tassmin. You name it, I get it. Hardly anyone spells it right the first time. Or the second time.

Anyways, I kinda like my name better than Tamsin, but Tamsin is the main character in a book called Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough.

I've heard it pronounced tam-ZIN. With more emphasis on the s. One of my favorite girls names.

There's a British actress with a spelling variation of this name - Tamzin Outhwaite.
-- Just Jonquil  6/9/2012
Thomasina sounds elegant and classy.
Tamsin sounds tacky, like the name of an anorexic model wannabe who picked this name to sound 'unique' (though someone like that would probably spell it 'Tammzynne' or similar to take the tackiness level up to a hundred).
If you really like this name, it's probably better to name your daughter Thomasina, with the option of Tamsin as a nickname.

This is my name! It means beautiful, twin and a few other things. I don't understand why people say this name's ugly, hence it means beautiful! It was a word used commonly a few 100 years ago meaning free spirit. I love this name, however, some people just can't say it, they say things like Tasmin and Jasmine, especially my old teachers! I especially like my name because it's used in some books mainly in books as a witch, and I'm sort of a witch! Don't judge me, I'm not evil, promise!
