Twin girl names needed; French

(83 Posts)

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!

Freya and Fifi seem quite bland next to Florence.

What about Florence and ....

Are you sure you want Florence? It sounds like someone in her mid-forties, as do Béatrice and Sylvie and Fabienne. Elodie = about thirty. Violette, Joséphine, Esmé = 95. Granny chic isn't big here.

Florence and Matilde or Florence and Amelie

I love Agatha.

Aren't trends and fashion funny , when I was young Agatha was a name you'd give a witch ..now very trendy and chic.

When we told our elderly relatives we had named dd Rose they thought it terribly unfashionable and frumpy.

I can't stand Agatha (Agathe in French I think) or Agnes. I think they sound ugly and harsh. But I guess it's an age thing. I am in my 40's so I remember old ladies called those things. They belong in the same category as Edna, Gertrude, Gladys, Hilda, Ethel, Enid and Ada to me; ugly, clumsy, harsh and frumpy sounding.

All beautiful names IMO smile

What a shame you don't love Elodie (as you haven't mentioned it in feedback). I love it with Florence!

What gorgeous names.

I think 'Cherie' is a very nice name, I know and she's lovely. It means 'beloved' in French.

Florence and Odile or Margaux
I certainly wouldn't do same initials (and definitely not Fifi)
