Twin girl names needed; French

As we live in France we need 2 girls names that work with the French pronunciation primarily.
So far; Florence (very easy for French) - we all agree on this and think it's a definite for twin 1.
Florence and Freya?
Florence and Fifi?
Everything else has been rejected by one of the family (we have 3 boys) and we probably have just a few days left to decide. In France you have to register the birth very quickly afterwards!

Anais and Agnes (so much prettier with a French accent)!

Do you really want matchy names - starting with same letter?

I think you're limiting your name pool if that's what you want to do (also think is a bit of a cliche with twins, but that is entirely my personal opinion.

Florence and Juliet?
Florence and Isabel?
Florence and Matilda? or french version

Also like Beatrice and Genevieve and Agnes when said in French, (although less so in English)

Oh, and LOVE Juliette. ( Had a good friend called Juliette who lived in France)

Anaïs & Elodie

Fifi sounds like a nn for Florence.

I adore Genevieve, and think it goes really with Florence.

Sophia/Sophie?

Clara?

Yseult.

Oceane.

HenriettaTurkey Thu 27-Dec-12 22:18:31

That's meant to say Anais...but the umlaut made it look terrible!

So Anais and Elodie

Genevieve and Elodie are lovely.

Sylvie was the only girl's name DH and I could agree on (but only have boys).

Oh not Genevieve. It hasn't got good connotations after Genevieve whatserface of beauty pageant infamy.

Francesca is also tricky for Frenchies. Felicite is nice, as are Beatruce and Amelie.

Recent arrivals in our circle:

Perrine
