need advice for French name for a baby girl due in 3 weeks
Here is my list for my baby girl due in 3 weeks. Her older sister (my 2.5 year old) is named Aveline.
Let me know what you think of these choices:
Vivienne--lovely, I want this to be the middle name of my second daughter
Clarisse--LOVE!!! I want this to be my first daughter's name
Angelique--I love the French pronunciation, but English kinda ruins it
Anise--like the stuff they put in liquorice?
Estelle--Love it! My planned twin set is Estelle and Celeste.
Violette--I prefer plain old Violet
I love your daughter's name! Aveline is just gorgeous. As for her sister:
Elise - gorgeous and I love it, but it just doesn't seem to quite measure up to Elise, imo, if that makes sense. It's a bit dated, and definitely more mainstream than Aveline. Aveline's so striking--I would want something that's just as striking for her sister. Elise would be a lovely MN, though, if you couldn't part with it. :)
Vivienne - I think Aveline and Vivienne is nice--my only concern is all the "V"s. Do you think it'd trip you up, trying to say their names?
Clarisse - love! Aveline and Clarisse is great together, and I love Clarisse's nicknames--anything from Clara (or just Clare/Claire) to Ari or Risse/Reese/etc. I think it's a perfect pair with Aveline.
Elodie - another great pairing. I think Aveline and Elodie work very well together.
Charlotte - much more popular/mainstream than Aveline, but also currently very in style. I think Elodie and Clarisse fit much better with Aveline, but I'm torn because I really love Charlotte! I think it's a wonderful name, and I love the nns Lola and Lottie. This one's on my own personal list. :)
Adele - gorgeous. I'm guessing you don't mind the girls sharing a first initial? If not, I think Adele is so sweet. If you like nns, though, I would just make sure they don't go by Avi and Addy--I think that could get confusing pretty fast!
Angelique - I'm torn on how I feel about this. On the one hand, I know a very sweet teenage girl named Angelique from Paris... her sister was my best friend before she passed on, so I have a really wonderful association to her. There's also an American Angelique I know who pretty much bullied my baby sister, so that's a negative association I have with it, haha, so I can't decide if I like it or not. As far as Ang- names go, I do prefer Angelina/e, personally.
Anise - it's okay, I suppose, but I think, at least in America, she'd get some "anus" teasing. :( I like Anais a lot more, for some reason it gets rid of the negative association for me, but I know a lot of people still have that thought. If you're in France, though, I doubt it'd be as much of an issue. From what I understand Anais is huge over there right now, though, so if you are in France that might not work, depending on if you want a popular name or not, haha.
Estelle - very pretty, and I like the nns Stella and Elle/Ella, but I like other Elle names more.
Claire - I like it, but for a FN I prefer Clarisse.
Marielle - very pretty. I like that she could be Mari (MAH-ree, not Mary or Marie), Ari, or even Elle/Ella/Ellie. I think it's very sweet. I do prefer Arielle personally, though.
Violette - I love Violet names--I think Violet, Viola, Violetta, and even my GP-that-I'd-never-use, Violyn, but for some reason, much as I love French culture, I'm not crazy about Violette for some reason. I think the English Violet is so much prettier, but I definitely understand it wouldn't work in French culture, as it's the masculine form and all.
Clarisse, Elodie, Charlotte, Adele, and Violette are my favorites!
I like a few of your names, however with her sister's name I think that Marielle is perfect! I liked a couple of the shorter names, but it didn't hold it's own to your daughters name which is very beautiful. Good luck! :)
Elise, Charlotte, Estelle and Marielle are beautiful. The rest are nice, too, but those four would be my favorites out of them. :)
