Twin Girls, looking for french names

Hello,

I'm having twins in May and I'm stuck on girls names. We already have a daughter named Amelie and I tend to gravitate towards french names. We had originally picked out Violet and Sofia but I've completely gone off Sofia as it's too popular (prefer unique names)

I've recently fallen in love with the name Miette but can't find any other names that would fit with it (Violet and Miette doesn't sound right together with the double 'et's).

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

On my top list at the moment are so many that you've listed :D

I loooove Aurelie but I'm worried it's too close to Amelie.

Ophelie and Ottilie are a few of my top picks but my husband isn't convinced.

Oh I suppose the ette in Claudette is no good. Claudine?

Solange. Amazing name, beautiful meaning, rarely used in predominantly anglophone countries.
