No baby yet.

Am also fond of the name Philipa/Phillipa/Philippa/Phillippa.

How to spell it?    :lol:
I wear it for a memorable honor,
For I am Welsh, you know, good countryman.

Not sure.  But definitely NOT with the double P.  That just looks off.

I was reading about Sister Consolata who was born in Saluzzo, Italy on April 6, 1903.  Her Baptismal name was Pierina, I thought that was different, unique and if you put it into the google translator it will tell you how it is pronounced, that was also pretty.

We too are waiting for our newest grandchild, due any day now. We don't know the sex because that is the way the parents want to do it, the old fashioned way. 

Pray for both babies to be born Holy, Happy and Healthy.

So happy and grateful to God, today Jan.2 Feast Day of the Holy Name of Jesus, my great grandson was born. 
Because of the Feast Day his initials are J.M.J. John Michael Joseph. 

Please pray for him when he is an adult he will live up to his name.

Would go for Felicitas first.

Pronounced Fell-LEESH-ah

Really?  When I read the name, I pronounced it in my head, Fell-EESH-ee-ah.

We've got some very beautiful names here for your, Mith! :)

You may be correct.  I live near Boston and we’re not known for precise pronunciations.  The last “i” maybe was getting incorrectly dropped by her Bostonian friends.  She seemed to take it in stride.
