    I don't really like it, but that's probably because it reminds me of the football player Gorden Tallis.

    Tal-us. Rhymes with Alice.
    I'd not heard it either until I met someone at work by that name.

    Sorry but I automatically think of Gordon Talis. He played Rugby League for the Broncos. A bit of a legend in QLD bit pretty much known for being a bit of a old school rough footy guy.

    I love it too Pandora, I'm from Vic so have absolutely no name association with the rugby league player. I have heard of Tallon, but never Tallis.

    Maybe you'll have to go back for another one so that you can use it????

    Oh that explains it if it's league, I'm in Vic.

    Hehe megs, not any time soon for this little black duck. I do like it though.

    I like it

    Not one I would use, but it's nice because it's different but not 'out there'.

    I imagine a boy when I see the name - kind of similar to 'Talon'.

    I also think of Gordon Tallis, but if i liked the name that wouldn't stop me from using it.

    The only other way Id seen it spelled was Thales, and I thought Talis was the easier one?

    ... reckon you'd pick Felix anyway

    I'm confused is it pronounced Tell-Us, Tell-Is or Tall (as in height) -Us ??

    either way i'm not a big fan but having said that it could grow on me !!

    (i went to primary school with a lovely Turkish boy named Tabis)
