This is just my opinion but I don't think it works unless you are French.

It will be frequently misheard as “Pauline” which is pretty old fashioned. I do like it though!

I like it. I wouldn't hear it as Pauline. I'd assume you were French.

Lovely, there is a little one at my sons Primary School and I often think it has a lovely sound to it.

It's a lovely name! It probably could be misheard but who cares, correct them.

It’s very similar to Pauline pronounced the French way.

Lovely in French but sounds like a cleaning product in English.
