I just wondered.

PidjChick would have been Odette nn Etta if he weren't a boy. Odile is the evil one iirc!

I'm saving it in case of PidjChick II wink

Darn Sarf here it's pronounced Oh-Debt if that helps...

I prefer Odile smile

Not sure. What about Odessa? I know 2 people (they are related) called Odessa, they are 60 and 20 something. They both really like their name.

It's good! If you like it and say it confidently, it will work.

It's my middle name - I love it and wish it were my first name. It goes beautifully with Celeste - you have gorgeous taste smile

It is true that Odette is outdated, but it might be just old enough to start coming back. The Odettes I know are in their sixties, and from rural places. I love Ottilie (which is Odile in german) because of that fantastic novel by Goethe, it is very romantic to me.Odile is a nice name, but definitely from the 1960's in France.

I love it, I know an Odette. I think Celeste and Odette are lovely together too.

Asked her.

He confirmed it. Which is why we never married and made babies.

She shagged my boyfriend, then told me it was non of my business when I politely asked him if she had. Actually, it was my business, because I needed to know whether to throw him out of my flat or not.

Ottily is much, much nicer.

Makes me think of the chain of bars in Manchester - there are three - Odd, Odder, Oddest.

Much prefer Odelia.

Nice pretty name

Makes me think of SOE operative Odette.

It is a very dated French name. I don't think it will ever come back.

KatieScarlett2833 Fri 05-Oct-12 20:09:40

I like it

AlexanderS Fri 05-Oct-12 20:08:54

I used to know an Odette. It never got shortened to anything. It's nice, though definitely associated with the French - my mate had French ancestry.

BoyMeetsWorld Fri 05-Oct-12 20:01:57

Love it but hubby days def no - & he's french

Snap on Celeste, I don't think Odette goes at all with it.

A debt.

an odd little french girl

Yup I thought it was Odd-ette. I did learn ballet but in Lincolnshire!

5DollarShake - Yeah, that's what I meant, I wasn't feeling too coherent yesterday...

Interesting reactions, overall. I can see why you might not like it. I already have a Celeste so it might be a French step too far! I just think French girl's names are so gorgeous.

Swan lake!
But it's also my grand mother. It feels a bit strange but I can see the appeal.
I like Odile better, or Laurette. I also have cousin named Aude.
