Message:
I'm due in less than a month and a half and still haven't decided on a name. I wanted a name that you can easily pronounce in french and english beacause my side of the family is french and my huband is english. I currently do not know the sex of the baby any ideas?

I like Renee and Esme and you can even combine them to form the hideously ugly name of Renesmee :)

One of my favorite French girl's name is Agnes... but English-speakers butcher that beautiful name. :)

Given that, I recommend Simone, Madeleine, or Genevieve.

Hi. I am half french and can speak it partially. I wouldn't say I am fluent in it, but can definatly pronounce words and names and all as they should be said and if dropped in the middle of France could get my way around. My name is Dominique and personally I love how my name is said in french much more than in english because it does get butchered in english and nobody says it right here because they say Dahm-ih-neek and think thats the correct way. I get called Dominic quite frequently and probably more often than I do my real name by office personal as well. So while I do love my name, its not as fun of a name to deal with here lol.

My sisters name is Gabrielle and I think this name is very beautiful and easy to say in english and french. Simone, Arielle and Madeliene are also very pretty and easier to pronounce I think.

For boys names I have always loved Lucian and think Henri is gorgeous when said in french. Best of Luck!!!!
