Honestly, I think it's really unappealing. It sounds incredibly awkward, and it's like "Soft kitty" in a name without any grammar :/ I don't know anyone who could take this name seriously. Sorry! One of those names best left in Medieval times, I think.
Other similar options could be something like Fioralba (which I love), Fiorella, Dulcinea, Gwenaëlle, Ludivine, or Marjolaine. Long and wordy, but way more usable. Or if you like Medieval names, I came across Mevanou once as a medieval form of Myfanwy, and I think that's amazing.
Yipes. In America, this would be pretty hard to live with.
I agree, it brings other words to mind... for me for some reason it also made me think of the French word for garbage can, which is poubelle... that didn't improve upon my initial reaction. :-?
First thing that popped into my head too. Maybe spell it differently? Dousebelle? How about Dulcebelle?
Definitely thinking about doucheb** too. It's a horrible name..
I think it proves medieval parents had equally bad taste as modern ones.
because a childhood of being called douche-bell won't be traumatizing...
you all need to remember this while picking names; kids are absolutely brutal.
I agree totally!
I definitely don't want my child to be teased about her name. But the kids will find something else tease if it is not the name.
I know a Anna - Sophia who gets teased about her name and I have the same experience because I get called Vaseline every time I say my name to someone. That's why I called Bellerose.
Thanks!I love mevanou and I really like Dulce
