I just thought Solange might be a lovely name... Apart from Beyonce's sister - what do you think of this for a girl. How would you shorten it?

It sounds lovely!

Tried to look up meaning but the urban dictionary one was rankhttp://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=solange

Solly? Sol?

How about Solene, Selene, Sandrine, Ciel, Celandine?

Suki can be short for solange perhaps ?

Yes, it's lovely, Gigi would be nn for Solange.

Fairly traditional French name. Went to school with one a million years ago. I don't think she abbreviated it.

I really dislike it, sorry.

How is it pronounced?

Would you want to be called Solange?

Cos I really would not.
Am reading it as Solanj.......

Hate it.

emeline Mon 22-Dec-14 00:04:12

I don't like it, sorry. It rhymes with Flange. And blancmange.

emeline Mon 22-Dec-14 00:05:13

looks like the word blancmange!

scarletforya Mon 22-Dec-14 00:09:23

Yeah, sounds like flange. It's really ugly. Really bad.

Flywheel Mon 22-Dec-14 00:11:08

I was also about to suggest Solene

LeoandBoosmum Mon 22-Dec-14 00:11:41

Don't like Solange... It does, like Emeline says, make me think blancmange!
How about Cecilia or Celeste for similar alternatives?

LeoandBoosmum Mon 22-Dec-14 00:12:44

Yep, my mind is made up: Solange sounds 'sloppy' to me.

steppeupunderthemisletoe Mon 22-Dec-14 00:16:03

my brazilian friend was Solange, she pronounced the e on the end, so it was So - lan -jay

which ia nicer I think

Reminds me of blancmange, flange and lozenge. Really ugly to my ears I'm afraid.

baskingseals Mon 22-Dec-14 08:36:43

I like it. She could be Lolly, which is very sweet.

HoHonutty Mon 22-Dec-14 08:37:51

Does it rhyme with orange?

Hedgehogsbuzz1 Mon 22-Dec-14 08:42:08

I like it. There's also seren.

Beangarda Mon 22-Dec-14 10:14:13

I quite like it. I know one who is called Solly, which may or may not float your boat. The Solange Knowles connection wouldn't particularly appeal to me, though.

Hoho, it's French, and pronounced So-LAHNJ.

One of my closest friends at school was called Solange. Lovely name. Wasn't abbreviated and no nickname which is why her (french) mother chose it.

I also know a Soline and a Selene, that latter of which is pronounced Celine-ee. Drives me insanse!
