Looking for 'INE' names to add to my list!

I adore girl names with the ending ‘ine’. (Usually pronounced EEN as in teen, but I don’t mind the occasional INE as in mine.)

I generally like names that are classic, but uncommon. Those that ‘sound [name_m]French[/name_m]’ (though not necessarily [name_m]French[/name_m] in origin) are my favourites.

Here are a few that I love. I pronounce all of these with the EEN ending, unless otherwise noted.

[name_f]Ameline[/name_f]
[name_f]Apolline[/name_f]
[name_m]Augustine[/name_m]
[name_f]Coraline[/name_f] (prn. line)
[name_m]Cymbeline[/name_m]
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Madeline[/name_f] (prn. line)
[name_f]Marceline[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosaline[/name_f]

Which are your favourites and can you suggest any alternatives which might be added to my list?

[name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Sabine[/name_f]

I love them too!

My favourites of yours: [name_m]Augustine[/name_m], [name_f]Coraline[/name_f], [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f], & [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]

Others I like, -een except where noted:
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] (line!)
[name_f]Celestine[/name_f]
Celandine
[name_f]Angeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Jacqueline[/name_f]
[name_f]Alexandrine[/name_f]
[name_f]Sabine[/name_f]
[name_f]Zephirine[/name_f]
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Leontine[/name_f]
[name_f]Opaline[/name_f]
[name_f]Orsaline[/name_f]
Ursaline

And if it counts, I adore:
[name_f]Jessamine[/name_f] (jess-ah-[name_u]MIN[/name_u], not -EEN or -INE)

Thanks for the great suggestions!

I love [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f] but unfortunately it’s the name of a rather nasty character in a murder mystery I wrote! Oops! Shouldn’t use nice names for bad characters!

I want to like [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], but because I’m such a fan of [name_f]Madeline[/name_f] it feels like someone missed off the ‘M’!

Evangaline and [name_f]Sabine[/name_f] are sweet. I have a good friend who is [name_f]Sabina[/name_f]!

None of the others really stand out. Though I feel [name_f]Leontine[/name_f] could definitely grow on me.

What do people think of [name_f]Sixtine[/name_f]? I feel it wouldn’t work outside of [name_f]France[/name_f] because of the 16 association, but I kind of love it.

I love [name_f]Olivine[/name_f] (prn’d. ending in -INE), wydt of that?

From your list my favorites are [name_f]Apolline[/name_f], [name_f]Coraline[/name_f] and [name_f]Marceline[/name_f].
I also like [name_f]Marcheline[/name_f] which is quite similar to [name_f]Marceline[/name_f].

OMG I [name_f]LOVE[/name_f] -ine names!

Trying to suggest some more… sorry for any repeats.

Oh yes, I forgot [name_f]Sixtine[/name_f]! Might be one of my favorite -ine names [name_u]EVER[/name_u].

I have a major crush on the -ine names too right now. My favorites are [name_f]Pomeline[/name_f] and Iverine (eve-er-een).

Of your choices, my favorites are [name_f]Apolline[/name_f] and [name_f]Coraline[/name_f].

[name_f]Aveline[/name_f] came to mind right away. [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] (line) and [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] are two other attractive choices. : )

Sorry littlewren I just hear [name_f]Olive[/name_f] [name_m]Vine[/name_m] and picture a plant!

[name_f]Marcheline[/name_f] is ok, but [name_f]Marceline[/name_f] still wins out there.

Thanks for your suggestions!

I would definitely consider…
[name_f]Bernardine[/name_f]
[name_f]Earnestine[/name_f]
[name_f]Elladine[/name_f]
[name_f]Eponine[/name_f]
[name_u]Florentine[/name_u]

Isn’t [name_f]Sixtine[/name_f] great!? I wish people wouldn’t automatically assume sixteen though :frowning:

[name_f]Aveline[/name_f] and [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] are the names I am currently obsessed with :slight_smile:

I am [name_f]Martine[/name_f] and my sister is [name_f]Nadine[/name_f].
