I know 3 Phoebe's, of 3 different generations. One, in her early 70's, is a retired professor of religion. Another, in her late 20's is an elementary school teacher. And one @ 6, is still a girl. The parents of the 6-yr-old & the 28-yr-old are both very liberal alternative types.

When my daughter was young, she was friends with the now 28-yr-old, so together they were Robin & Phoebe, a couple of little birds. At the time, everyone thought very cute.

Like Daphne, I cannot imagine Phoebe ever becoming wildly popular. I think the names have a slightly offbeat appeal.

I think the average person would mispronounce Phebe.
