We are expecting our 2nd baby any day (hour, minute) and are still undecided on a name! Yeeps. I need some opinions. We are english-speaking [name]North[/name] Americans currently living in [name]France[/name]. We have a very simple, one syllable, english surname. We are looking for a French name that will work in English, as we expect our daughter to grow up in an English-speaking country. So far, we have 2 choices:
[name]Eloise[/name] (easy to pronounce in both languages, not common in N/A, popular and modern here, love the nickname [name]Ellie[/name]!)
Cl”a (pronounced [name]Clay[/name]-ah. I [name]LOVE[/name] this name but realize she will probably always have to pronounce it for people. Not sure how big a deal this is).
Middle names could be [name]Alice[/name] (names of 3 of our great-grandmothers), either of the 2 first names we picked, [name]Yvette[/name] (name of the river that we live and stroll by here in [name]France[/name]). Other suggestions? What about similar first names. I’m open to more options, but we aren’t agreeing on much!
