So the criteria are - preferably a name that works in French as well as English (I'm half French and my own name is French and currently v popular in UK, but not when I was growing up in 80s!)

I like the 'old' circa 1920s names that are now trending.
Don't like fussy, overly girly, or flower names (with of course one or two exceptions, but as a general rule!)

Don't really want a top 10 name if can help it, although struggling so much that popularity is becoming less and less of a big deal...

My current (long) list is here:
Celeste
Gigi
Cosette
Colette
Clara
Ruby
Cora
Maude
Sybil
Mimi
Mabel
Audrey

What else might I like?

Elodie would have been DS's name, had he been a girl.
I am also part French so wanted the connection, plus I think it sounds lovely, like melody.
