Hi. Do you prefer Emile or Thibault? I prefer Thibault (I like Bo as a nickname). My husband prefers Emile. However, we both love both. Thank you.

Are you French by any chance? grin Both fairly popular names

I prefer Emile

Not a lover of Emile, I prefer Thibault, sounds more masculine.

Thibault I think.

Or just Beau?

Love Thibault - my husband is mad about the tour de France and there is a cyclist called Thibault Pinot and he always says what a great name it is smile

Thibault is probably more current choice for a youngster, if that helps grin But I expect you know that.

Than Emile, I meant to say!

I prefer Emile.

Never heard of Thibault not even sure how to pronounce it

T-bo confuses more people I would think
So Emile is cute and got good associations

n0ne Tue 14-Feb-17 20:09:19

I like Emile

SuperBeagle Tue 14-Feb-17 20:13:41

Looking at Thibault, I want to pronounce it Thigh-bolt, even though I know it's not pronounced like that. I'd avoid that one unless you live in France.

Emile is fine. I prefer the spelling Emil.

AbbieJ Tue 14-Feb-17 20:16:47

Super Emile is the French version.

Thanks all

Thibaut is a great name.

Emile is retro chic. Thibault is ok but a bit eighties.

I read it as thigh bolt
But it's pronounced t-bo apparently
Never heard of it . ( I'm northern and poor wink )

T bo sounds like t bone no?

Please think about whether names like these will suit teenage boys with spots, games consoles and a class full kids with more conventional names. Cute babies grow up & often want to blend in. They are both so drippy.

I'm Northern, Poor but did Shakespeare at school.

clumsyduck Tue 14-Feb-17 22:07:24

But that's Tybalt

reuset Tue 14-Feb-17 22:08:40

Think OP might be French, sticker. It's perfectly normal name there. Emile is considered kind of old man chic, perhaps. Thibault was very popular 80s and 90s, and though not as popular still fairly popular now.
