Baby Girl Name in French and Southern English ๐Ÿ˜„

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] ladies! [name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I are pregnant with our 3rd baby. We have two boys and this is a girl! [name_f]My[/name_f] husband is [name_u]French[/name_u] and I am American (from the south) so we keep in mind how the name will sound in both languages. We went more french with our two boys, [name_m]Augustin[/name_m] and [name_m]Bastien[/name_m], but have been keeping a running list on girl names for years. I am 32 weeks and we have managed to narrow it down quite a bit. I have been exploring double names because I love them and theyโ€™re more southern. Anyway, here are the top choices. Please let me know your suggestions :pray::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::pray:

-Lucie [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
-Sophie [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
-Emma [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
-Margaux/Margot

If we donโ€™t do a double name, we would use [name_f]Lucie[/name_f], [name_f]Sophie[/name_f], or [name_f]Emma[/name_f] then use [name_f]Kate[/name_f] as the middle name.

Thanks so much in advance!!!

All of these options are very sweet but as a double barrel I think [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is my favorite, followed by [name_f]Lucie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f].

Some double barrel ideas:
[name_f]Esme[/name_f] / [name_f]Esmee[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_u]Georgie[/name_u] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Noelle[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Helene[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Valerie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f] / [name_f]Stella[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Cherie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Mavis[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Adele[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Perrine[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Bettie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Nadine[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]

And suggestions for [name_f]Kate[/name_f] in the middle spot:
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Marceline[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Odelle[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Jessamine[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Rochelle[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Mirabelle[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Sabine[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]

Congratulations and welcome to Nameberry!

I loooove [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] and have a real soft spot for the dramatic X spelling. Your boysโ€™ names feel really distinguished to me and [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] definitely gives me that cool, refined, Euro chic vibe.

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourite double name would be [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f], but Iโ€™m definitely Team [name_f]Margaux[/name_f]!

[name_f]Margaux[/name_f] with middle name [name_f]Kate[/name_f] would be very lovely.

I like Lucie Kate and Sophie Kate! Like the suggestions of Lucille & Vivienne. Iโ€™ll also add Louisa / Louise, Isabelle & Juliette

[name_f]Margaux[/name_f] is my very favourite

Margaux/Margot is perfection with your sonโ€™s fantastic names! Itโ€™s one of my favourite names (as is Bastien) and I think stylistically itโ€™s brilliant with Augustin and Bastien, much more so than your other choices (in my opinion).

Some others I like with your kidsโ€™ names:

Matilda/Mathilde
Beatrix
Clementine
Eloise
Clara
Giselle
Flora
Emmeline
Noa
Paloma
Etta
Marigold
Iris
Tallulah ( I feel this one taps into your southern roots)
Ophelia
Lucia
Florence
Elodie
Fleur
Ottilie
Stella
Thea
Violette
Zelda
Coraline
Delphine
Edith
Simone
Claudia
Elise
Harriet
Ines
Lucienne
Sylvie

[name_f]Margaux[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f], especially with the boysโ€™ names is just Wow. :heart_eyes:

Thanks ladies for the wonderful feedback! I think [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] might be the winner! What do you think about a middle name?

[name_f]Margaux[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f] (my late grandmotherโ€™s name)
[name_f]Margaux[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Margaux[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u]
[name_u]Or[/name_u]?
