There's a show on Investigation Discovery that mentioned this name. But the narrator pronounced it Zilphia and her family pronounced it Zelphia. It reminded me of how Ezra wants to name his future daughter Xylia, after his grandmother Sylvia. I like the 'ph' sound for the 'v.' Maybe there's a happy medium. Xylphia? Looks like a medication. Zylphia? Meh... Xelphia? I prefer that one, if I had to choose. And does it go with the middle name I chose? (Roselyn (Rose=my oma, Lynn=Deborah and Penny))
Xelphia Roselyn Byrd
Hmmm... the 'x' looks mighty harsh. :/
Zelphia Roselyn Byrd
I like it. Looks the most like Sylvia, and is appealing to the eyes.
I wish I could get him to agree on Phineas. Phineas Gray Byrd. Nope. Flint. Flint Gray Byrd. While, yes, I like it, it isn't any part mine... We HAVE to have Gray. And Ezra said no to 4 names (2 middle names). But HE chose Flint. I can't contribute... That's the one reason I'd want a girl, that name is kick ass. I suppose I'll just have to come up with one both of us like, that match his criterion of being uncommon. Good thing I have a while! -Elle
