Comments for THOMASINA:

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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. :)

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 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.

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

Thomasina Montgomery was the real name of 1960s Motown singer Tammi Terrell (1945-1970).

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.”.
