We live in UK but DH is French and we have vague plans to move there in the future, so names need to work in both languages. We both prefer more classic names. Currently the thinking is Vincent (DH is a bit :/ and the two pronunciations are very different) or Marie (I don't like it at all but it was DH's grandmother's name and he loves it). Thank you!

Vincent is gorgeous.

I'd go with Marianne if DH is keen on the Marie element. Beautiful name and IIRC the name of the female personification of France!

Or friends of mine called their DS Lucas, pron "Luca" by her French half of the family.

Just reading the title, the name that jumped in to my head was Felicity.

A half-French girl I know is called Elise, which I think is pretty. Also Eloise. Marie would work well as a middle name with practically anything so maybe you could convince your DH to go with that if you have a daughter.

Louis (with a silent s. if you want to hear the s it's Lewis!)

Belle and Sebastian needs an indie name to accompany them - although I've drawn a blank grin
