Hmmm I'm quite picky I'm afraid! Know too many madeleines already, fleur sounds too old and Renee reminds me of the actress by the same name!

Esme and Anais are quite pretty but don't want to same name as Noel Gallaghers and meg matthews daughter!

Wow Elodie lovely! And Melisande, what would it be shortened to do you think?

artichokes Mon 14-Jul-08 13:03:28

Melisande would be shortened to Mel which is not that exciting. Elodie could be El.

Clemence. With an accent on the first 'e' that I don't know how to do on my keyboard. But you're not French!

Elodie is lovely, IMHO.

Think MmeBovary should have had Emma on her list. wink

Yseult?
Manon?
Emmanuelle?
Yvette?

Jaimée has got to be a made-up name, surely?
