Which spelling?

Phebe or Phoebe? Phebe is an older spelling that is used in Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott. We have Rose as a middle name...the 2 names are after 2 characters in Eight Cousins. My 3 older daughters (ages 8,6 and 3) are Margaret Josephine, Amy Elizabeth & Abigail May after the 4 sisters & mother in Little Women by Louisa May Alcott & the May is after the author (she is my favorite author and the names are timeless).

  • It's been a long time since I read those books. Phebe isn't common and you're less likely to have people see it and think you named her after the Friends character. :)
