I love names with accents, aestetically speaking; they look more appealing and elegant to me.
But I often wonder, do you pronounce them any differently? I'd love to now, as I was considering Catèrine instead of plain Catherine.

Lol, alter (Alt) on your keyboard plus a combonation of numbers on the left part of the keyboard make accents and whatever, and there are sights that show you which number combonation is what lol. And thanks :P I love those three!

But I think you'd have to look that up, because I'm not sure, Nadia! Catèrine does look really pretty though! (may I add it to my list?) ;)

Accents do seem to make names look less plain, and I think they're more unique! (but not too unique lol). I tried googling names with accents and whatever, but it didn't help :D

I love names with accents, as long as it has something to do with the way the name is pronounced. I think accents add a really classy, elegant look to a written name. :D

Like, to me Valérie would have to be val-ER-ie, not VAL-er-ie like it normally is...which seems weird. But if you don't intend to put the accent on the syllable, why would the accent be in the name? Maybe I just don't really get it...I've only ever studied Spanish, and every accent in that language means something. A bunch of these names look like they've got French origins, and I don't know anyyyyything about the French language.

My favorite on your list is Zoë. So cute, and the accent is there for a definite purpose...I hate this name spelled just Zoe, or worse, Zooey, Zoiee, etc., but Zoë is perfect!!

Thanks Tyler :D I like Zoë like this a lot to! No, I plan on saying the accents there, not just there to make a name look pretty lol :P Though accents most definately make a name look more beautified!
