We have [name_u]French[/name_u] origins so a name that works in both the USA and in [name_f]France[/name_f] is important. [name_u]Alix[/name_u] is popular in [name_f]France[/name_f], bot not sure Americans will like it (may be annoying to constantly explain [name_u]Alix[/name_u] with an “I” as they will hear [name_u]Alex[/name_u])?
[name_f]Alba[/name_f] works in both countries but I am not sure how [name_f]Alba[/name_f] is perceived in the USA. I see it was somewhat popular a century ago (like [name_f]Alma[/name_f]). [name_m]How[/name_m] do you perceive [name_f]Alba[/name_f]? Does it sound “dated” to you?
Thanks a lot for your inputs!
[name_m]Thomas[/name_m] & [name_f]Amandine[/name_f]
