We Have Achieved a Name!
Introducing...

Tova Lieba!

We'll call her Tobie.  Tova = Good in Hebrew, and Lieba = "loved one" in Yiddish (also, "heart" from the Hebrew lev - as in "good heart" or "kind heart")

welcome Tobie!!!

I love that name and the nickname.

Mazel tov.

Thank you! We're pretty fond of her, and therefore, also of her name. :)

Lovely name!

thanks! We think so, and fortunately all of our friends are kind enough not to tell us otherwise, even if they don't agree. ;)

I love it! Some good friends of mine have a 19 month old Tova Lieba. They call her Tovie.

I like Tovie also, but I knew that would be harder for my (non-Jewish) father.

she's so lovely! and what a wonderful name!

thanks! I do think she's lovely, but of course I'm biased. ;)

Lovely, lovely name. I love Leiba, and I'm a bit biased about Tova because it's my name (though my parents put an H at the end of it)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: May 4th, 2010 01:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
we were *this* close to reversing the name as Lieba Tova and calling her Libby. Actually, I'm still sort of missing "Libby" but I do love Tobie (or even Tovie, and obviously I love Tova all by itself - with or without an h!). :)

As a teenager I went by "Tov". One or two people called me Tovie. I like Toba and Toby, too.

Cool name. I like how the first and middle name go together for the nickname. Congrats on naming the wee one!

Beautiful name! Mazel tov! Or should I say, "Mazel Tova Lieba!"
