Re: What are the best French baby names for a girl ?

I think that these days I prefer AZERTIA.

Sorry, OP, we are now off on our infantile ramblingsBlush [:$]

I do read a lot so if I come across any nice, slightly unusual girls' names, I'll let you knowSmile [:)]

How about Zoë
or better still, Zoe which is much easier to type on multilingual keyboards

Re: What are the best French baby names for a girl ?

My favourite French girls name is 'Alyette' .

Such a beautiful name and not very common.

You also have 'Maëlle' which is also very nice but very difficult to pronounce. 'My hell' LOL

Why not walk around a very old graveyard in France for some ideas ????

Re: What are the best French baby names for a girl ?

I think Rabbie is right that sometimes it depends on people who you have know with that name in the past.
It also depends on what kinds of names you like. There are a couple of Oceans around here, but it's not a name that appeals to me.
I think Delphine is a charming name that would suit a little girl or an adult. Carol or Carole would be OK in either language.
The latest addition around these parts is one of my neighbours four-years-old Victoire and we are all under orders that it will never be Vikki.

I like Rebecca, Rose, Claire and Louise, each of which would be fine in either language. Many French girls' names have Marie, such Marie Louise, Marie Claire, Marie France etc, which I like too, and would also be suitable.

I used to know a Marie-Pierre which always sounded odd to me and I have a work colleague Pierrette which again doesn't sound quite right

How about Chantal ? Or Clemence?

But a lot depends on how it will sound in your American accent....there may be a big difference say between New Jersey and Texas......
