i wouldn't use it. it would forever be pronounced as Fl-ee. i can imagine the teasing now.
although everyone gets teased for something nowadays it seems.



i like a couple of your other names. Matilda, Martha (my G-ma's name), and Agnes. i never really like Agnes until Despicable me though.

Oh come on now. You know that is just asking for it. Do you really expect your child to survive childhood without being teased mercilessly for that?

Spelled that way? Or is it Freja or Freya? I like the j spelling. It looks more exotic.

Yep spelled like that. I believe she is of a different nationality. I can't remember where though.

Quoting linsα:" No. That only works for Flea in RHCP. :lol: I like Matilda. What about Beatrice? I like it when its pronounced Bee-ah-tress. Tress like in trespassing. "


My Grandmas middle name was Beatrice. I renamed Lily when she was a year old and wanted to name her after my grandma. My sister was having a fit (well, more so my brother in law) over having two grandchildren with "Marie" in the middle name so he didnt want me to name Lily that. I was going to go with Lilyin Bea since Im not a fan of beatrice (my grandmas middle name) but I finally said eh, screw it, she's being named Marie!



It chapped my brother in laws ass and Im fine with that, lol!

I don't care for those names. If I wanted them, I probably would have considered them.
People don't seem to have problems with the name Lea or Leia. What's wrong with Flea?



I like Mildred. It means "gentle strength".
Myrtle or Millicent is nice too.

Because Flea looks like how the bug is spelled...



And ok you don't have to get snotty about it. Freya sounds quite like how you pronounce Flea.



Millicent is nice
