    Hi ladies,

    We're still don't know if we're having a boy or girl or even decided on a name yet but I quite like:
    Ebie / Ebe
    Pronounced ee-bee

    I don't want people to think its a nic name for Ebony and pronounce it eb-e if that makes sense. Hard to get pronunciation via msg :)
    All help welcome thanks ladies x

    I prefer the Ebie spelling. As I was reading the post, in my head I pronounced your spellings as
    ee-bee(Ebie)/eh-be(Ebe). So then reading what your preferred pronunciation is made it an easy choice for me :)

    If you're thinking the name for a girl, in my opinion, the 'ie' at the end is more feminine. But ultimately it's whichever you love best! Pretty name!

    I'm the opposite, I would think ebie is pronounced eh-bee. Although names like ava and eve have always confused me on pronunciation because ppl pronounce differently.

    I much prefer the look of Ebie. Or even Ebi is cute. But not a fan of Ebe written. It doesnt seem complete.
    Lovely name said aloud though x
