I’m back 2 years later and still just as lost in the name game We are expecting a little girl in about 3 months and have made no progress on names. We are a bilingual french english family though we speak only french at home but live as expats in the middle east. Our permanent home will probably be french speaking switzerland but definitely want a name that’s pronouncable in english as well. [name]Add[/name] to that I’m jewish but dh is not, so including that in the name could be nice but is not necessary. We have a 2 yo son Noé [name]Ilan[/name] and a very typical 2 syllable last name ending in -ah sound. Could you please help us name our daughter?
Some ideas :
Salomé - I love it, dh hates it
[name]Camille[/name] - dh loves it, I don’t
[name]Eugenie[/name] - I love it, dh hates it
[name]Alix[/name] - dh loves it, I’m unconvinced
[name]Eloise[/name] / Héloise - we more or less agree but I’m not sure it’s love
[name]El[/name]éonore / [name]Ali[/name]énor - I prefer [name]Ali[/name]énor but dh sees Alien, not sure either of us loves it
Yaël - we both like it, but is it too jewish /too hard for english speakers to say?
[name]Mathilde[/name] - maybe?
Schehérazade - my dirty little secret that I love but would never dare to use
Would love to hear your ideas on these and any other suggestions, [name]TIA[/name]!
