Violette, Juliette or Vivienne?
67

madeleinedupont · 29/07/2022 14:14

Hello everyone! We are having a daughter and we need advice on the names Violette, Juliette and Vivienne, because we cannot choose. I'm open to other name suggestions as well. I'm French but I live in London so all names should preferably be French! DD1 is called Mathilde Pénélope and DS is called Théodore Louis. Middle name suggestions would also be helpful!

Vivienne

It fits in with how girls are being named now e.g. name from early 20th century and is French.

Apologies, but I cannot seem to get the accents on the letters to work.
Some more suggestions, although I love Juliette

Zoe
Helena
Josephine
Aimee
Rosalia (love this as it is my French grandmothers name)

I think Elisabeth is a lovely middle name

If it was up to me, I'd call her Juliette Elisabeth.

I love Vivienne, really strong, distinguished name and goes well with your other DC’s name.

Violette by miles. It goes much better with your other names

Vivienne in the U.K. is very Essex. Juliette is dull.

Violette by miles. The name Vivienne always makes me think of Vyvyan Basterd, Ade Edmonson's character from the Young One's - obviously showing my age there!

Vivienne. The others are a bit, I don’t know, simpering.

I actually know a Violette and a Vivienne in rl - neither of them are Essex.

Personally don’t like Vivienne, sounds very stuck up to me, sorry 😬 but I love Juliette. Violette is nice too.

All 3 names go nicely with Mathilde and Théodore so you can't go wrong really. I would choose Violette as it's the most unusual and the nicest in my opinion.

Madeleine would be a nice middle name option.
