Gender: F Meaning of Cosette: "little thing" Origin of Cosette: French, female version of Nicolas

Cosette is best known as the heroine of Les Miserables. In the Victor Hugo novel, Cosette was the nickname given to the girl named Euphrasie by her mother.

Despite the popularity of Les Mis the musical, the name was given to only seventy-five girls in 2011, but this may change due to the wide exposure of the movie. Cosette would make a sweet if coquettish French choice.
