My name is Tomasina, I was named after my father, Thomas. He has been deceased for many decades now and afterwards my mother spoke of how she hated the name he insisted on calling his last child. He knew, in his gut he knew, he would have no boys. I proudly honor my Father's legacy. I am Tomasina, Thomas' daughter.

My Mother and my daughter are both named Thomasina. It is lovely and not at all strange. My mother is asked frequently if she is Italian but she was named after her father, Thomas. Thommie is a cute nickname and she doesn't get teased. I like that she has a strong name with a history, but is also feminine.

This is the name of a girl at my school, except spelled "Tomasina". She gets called "Tommy" by her friends which I think is cool. I kind of like this name, but won't use it on my daughter.

My name is also Tomasina and I love my name and get compliments on my name all the time. I was named after my grandpa and daddy. Tom & Tommy. I have never met anyone with my name. Tomasina Lynn is my full name but I get called Sina most of the time but if I'm being mischievous or my daddy calls me its SinaLynn. It's a great name for me. I'm a one in a million kinda country girl with class that don't mind getting some mud on my boots!

Absolutely love the comments of this name. I'll tell you my thoughts; it's a conversation piece- hardly anyone knows this name and with going by tommi Thomasina is my given name. I do feel it's a good name, strong and defined. Much appreciated this site- smile.

I think this name sounds pretty gorgeous, and my dads name is Thomas, so if I ever wanted to honor him I will call my little girl Thomasina :), though I prefer it without the H.

We named our daughter Thomasina, born in 2012. She gets called variously Thomasina or Thom by adults, and various approximations of that by her 1 to 2 year old friends.

Our first and only experience of it was from Arcadia, which I first saw in the West End when I was just 15.

It felt a little daring, at first, and we were nervous telling family what we had named her, but it is now almost universally described as lovely when she meets new people.

It seems a perfectly natural name now, completely familiar to us. It's lost all the old-fashionedness and fussiness, and feels like a beautiful name for our little girl. Hear a name out of context and it can have all sorts of connotations, but meet a person with that name and it suddenly feels quite different.

Coincidentally, it turned out that some university friends of ours had also had a daughter that year named Thomasina. There are still only around 5 born per year in the UK, however.

Italian form is Tomassina. Although rare as a first name (usually used as a surname), the masculine form is Tomassino.

I’ve also seen the name Thomasina alternately spelled “Tomessina” or “Thomessina.”.

This name has a lot of charm. It sounds really royal, but still a little bit too "out there" for me to use.

I often get heckled for this but I just adore the name Thomasina. It's underused in my opinion. I would absolutely love to see a little girl named Thomasina Elizabeth. The name speaks of elegance and refinement.

I didn't know this was actually a name! I had it stuck in my head for a few days now. I kinda like it, Sina is a good nickname. Although I wouldn't name my child this, maybe a character though.

I think this is quite a charming name. It sounds slightly too feminine though I think, but despite this, and despite the fact that it's named after Thomasina Tittlemouse, a Beatrix Potter character, I much prefer it to the more common feminine form of Thomas (Tamsin), which I dislike verily. And against that name, this name is brilliant. :)

While I love this name, it always reminds me of a cat.

I love this name! It sounds really beautiful and my father's name is Thomes so I'd consider using that, or Thomesina.

I, too, fell in love with this name after reading Arcadia by Tom Stoppard in school. I'm not sure I could ever get away with calling a future daughter Thomasina but as a writer it's the name of one of my main characters in the story I'm currently writing. It would be shortened to Sina as a nickname.

My name is Thomasyne. And that's a form of Thomasina only the a is silent on my name. So it's just Tom-uh-seen. I like my name. I'm 22 and I've lived with it for this long and everyone else seems to like it too, although no one can seem to say it without the a at the end. Or sometimes people cannot pronounce it at all!

This name had always struck me as very silly until I read Tom Stoppard's play Arcadia, in which the main character is named Thomasina. Now I really, really, really love it.

Tamsin is the short form of this. It's quite pretty, but I've only ever met cats named it!

I've never heard of anyone actually being named this.

I love this name! It has such a pretty, sweet sound. At the same time, though, it is not something I would name my child.
