I'm too much a fan of the full name so I have to say "use it." Then you still have the option of using Bastien as a nickname.
I like it. As a child in Italy, I played with a little girl named Mina. I like that it's not Mia or Nina but is reminiscent of both.

My favorite girls' name is Madeleine. Madeleine is the most common spelling in the UK, where I grew up. I think it is head and shoulders better than the other spellings. More authentic, classy and...

Some of mine I would use, others I never would, mostly because they don't go with my (difficult) last name. Here's a mix names I've been loving lately.
Cordelia - Ever since I read Evelyn Waugh's...

Love Josephine and it reminds me of Jo from Little Women.

My Elizabeth would be Eliza or Liza.
I don't care for any of them. I would say my favorite is Isla.

To me, it's slightly dated. I would put it in a category with Natalie. I believe both names are classic and will survive for a long time to come, but you don't hear that many babies being given...
I am not sure about the alliteration here, but Julia is a gorgeous name, as is Jane.
It bothers me when parents choose names that are too close, in either sound or origin, for multiple children. This week I met sisters named Olivia and Lily. I didn't particularly care for that...

Sabrina? or Sophie.
I love Therese. I think it's beautiful, meaningful and classic. I don't know about nicknames, I would probably just use Therese without shortening it. Tessa is cute but more suited to Theresa.

I used a virtual coin toss for the genders. :-)
Love what you said!
My husband and I are Catholic and really like the name Ambrose, as it has such a rich and ancient history in the Church. Do you like Ambrose? What is your impression of Ambrose? Do you think it could...
It is a short form of Bridget. I knew one person with this name. It was hyphenated, Bridie-Kate. She always went by both. I think it's totally usable.
I love your children's names. My name is Catherine and my sister is Clare!! I love Caroline and although the names are close, I think it works. They are all classic beauties and the C/K theme is nice.
Funny... I live in Melrose, Massachusetts. I can't think of it as a name because of the town, sorry.
Gillian is my mother's name! I think it's a great choice. We are from the UK and I'd say both spellings are common there. The G spelling is more distinctive in the US so why not go for it? Everyone...

Gemma has been popular and well used for several generations where I come from (the UK). It's an interesting question as to why it was never nearly as popular in the US. It is an Italian name and a...

I live in Massachusetts and teach second grade. I have taught at least one Ava every year. There are multiple Avas in the school. I would say along with Sofia/Sophia, it is the most common girls'...
