Here is what my husband told me yesterday. If we were to use the name Colette (which he is not against but not in love either) we need a good middle name. I suggested Colette Freya, because Freya is his number one name. He told me that he loves the name itself but he is not sure it goes well with Colette. He thinks they are too different in styles. I told him a third name would maybe change his mind on the association, and I suggested Colette Freya Billie or Colette Freya Sage or even Colette Freya Billie Sage (our daughter has 4 names too). He asked me if it’s not too weird to associate a French name, with a Scandinavian name and then an English name… Which is exactly the origins of our daughter’s names lol. However he finds Liv Marlowe (DD) more logic and coherent than Colette Freya, because Liv is also the English nickname of Olive/Olivia and not just a Scandinavian name. It makes sense for him.
What do you guys think of Colette Freya? Any other idea for a good middle name? To give you an idea, my husband likes Freya, Artemis, Ada, Aster, Terra, Nell, Alma for a girl, Gustave, Astor, Ambrose/Embrun, Zephyr for a boy.
Other names from our girl list are French names (Brune, Romée, Esmée)
- Colette Freya is awesome
- Colette and Freya don’t go well together, I suggest…
