All about Soleil ☀️

I have been crushing so hard on [name_f]Soleil[/name_f] recently - I love how sweet and sunny (no pun intended!) it sounds. I also love its nicknames - sunny, sol, soul, lei, lei lei, leia

But…
What do you really think of [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]?
How bad do you think the pronunciation issues would be?
How do you picture [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]?
What are some good middles?
What would you name Soleil’s siblings?

[name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to answer all, none or some!

TIA!

Too late over here to answer all but I like [name_f]Soleil[/name_f] more and more as time goes on. I think most people would butcher it first time but that wouldn’t put me off - as I can imagine any name holder being proud of it and not mind correcting/educating.

I see it on a warm-haired, amber/brown eyed gal. Attractive, chic, good at things.

I like [name_f]Soleil[/name_f].
I think there would be some pronunciation issues, but it wouldn’t be that bad.
I picture it as bright and sunny but… also kind of fancy?
I usually use [name_f]Soleil[/name_f] as a middle when I use it in combos, but some middle names I like for it are:

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Juniper[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Winifred[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Madeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Avery[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Aria[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Mallory[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Vanessa[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Ramona[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]

I think [name_f]Soleil[/name_f] is a stunning name.
How common is it that people learn [name_m]French[/name_m] where you live. [name_f]Soleil[/name_f] is a pretty basic piece of [name_m]French[/name_m] vocab, my preschoolers would learn it in their lessons on the weather topic, for example. I still think the second syllable would be a mystery to many, but at least [name_m]Sol[/name_m] on its own would be intuitive?

Maybe something [name_m]French[/name_m] as a middle too, but more international like [name_f]Marceline[/name_f] or [name_f]Marianne[/name_f].

I’m not sure what the rest of your naming style is like (amd maybe you just want to know what other people would use alongside the lovely Soleil) so here are some varied sibling ideas:

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f], [name_f]Madelief[/name_f] & [name_f]Amapola[/name_f]

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f], [name_f]Sasha[/name_f] & [name_f]Celie[/name_f]

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] & [name_f]Sunniva[/name_f]

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] & [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m]

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f], [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] & [name_f]Esme[/name_f]

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f], [name_f]Esmeray[/name_f] & [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]

What do you really think of [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]?

So summery and distinctive - full of the oldy-worldy charm of [name_m]Sol[/name_m], and the sleek, sparkle of [name_f]Leila[/name_f] - reminds me of summer holidays - and maybe a bit of sunscreen

How bad do you think the pronunciation issues would be?

Not sure, because I feel like I’ve always known? Maybe because of Cirque du [name_f]Soleil[/name_f], because of a sunscreen brand (and I asked how to say it) - however, I do think it might get mispronounced - maybe ask people where you are?

How do you picture [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]?

Some one cheerful and adventurous, outdoorsy - someone who loves interacting with nature - hiking, gardening, apple orchards, rock-pooling and pond-dipping, picnics and wildflower meadows. I get straw sunsets and braided hair too

What are some good middles?

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Esmeralda[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Calliope[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Ginevra[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_f]Juniper[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] [name_m]Adair[/name_m]

What would you name Soleil’s siblings?

[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] and…

[name_f]Tesni[/name_f]

[name_f]Mireya[/name_f]
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Miranda[/name_f]
[name_m]Magnus[/name_m]
[name_m]Jupiter[/name_m]

What do you really think of [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]?

I think it’s gorgeous! Sweet and spunky and I love the nn [name_f]Leia[/name_f] and Sunny!!

How bad do you think the pronunciation issues would be?

Hmm. It depends on the person, I think. I know how it’s pronounced because I’m a name nerd, but the average person may not. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal though; once you say it enough people will catch on.

How do you picture [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]?
