Baby Name Poll Results
Help vs. Me vs. Please!
Hey! My boyfriend’s family speaks French (and very little English) and my family only speaks English; which has made it a little difficult to find a name that both our families can pronounce. We have found a few girl names but haven’t found anything for a boy! What would you suggest? Thanks! ~Shannon
The Top Baby Name is...
Here is a link to the most popular names in France in 2010. The vast majority of the names are easily pronounced in English.
Thank you! My main worry is the fact that names are spelled the same in both languages but are pronounced differently and I don’t want to confuse our child. Like the name Alice, for instance, in English is Al-iss but in French is a-LEES. Or I love the name Leo, but in French it is pronounced Lay-o
These names can be pronounced easily by both French and English speakers, though they sound different. `
My son-in-law, Joel, is French. His name in French sounds like the English girl’s name Joelle, and English speakers say it as one syllable rhyming with HOLE. His solution is to go by a nickname: JoJo.
Thank you! I do like Sebastian but we have two problems with it. One is that it doesn’t flow with the baby’s last name (which ends in N) and the other is that I am really worried about having a name pronounced two different ways as I think it would really confuse the baby!
Thank you! I like Henri and Sebastian/Sebastian; but Henri I feel like will always be mispronounced like Henry and Sebastian doesn’t work with the baby’s last name and I still have the whole issue about it being pronounced two different ways!
Thank you! Unfortunately, I don’t like any of those names!
