Naming with culture;
I'm due with my first baby on October 21st and am starting to think about names. My mother was French and my father is half Japanese. I am hoping to honour their cultures in the name I choose for my baby.
Girls; Possible middle names - Aiko, Hana, Meiko, Mika, Suki, Sumi (also, while it's not Japanese, I really like Bird as a MN)
Boys; Possible middle names - Hiro, Koda, Maro, Ren, Zen
Surname is Devereux
Other names I like that aren't French;
Girls; Cosima, Paloma, Ramona
Boys; Arthur, Theo, Otis
Thoughts, ideas, suggestions??

Love Marcel and Leon, you don't see them very often on babies now and I like that they could make a comeback.
If you're interested I have a big list of French names I keep but most of them are older traditional or rare like the ones in my signature, if you like names popular in recent years like Delphine I can come up with a bunch of them too. Do you live in the states or by chance visit France a lot? I think that would have something to do with name choice.
I really like these Japanese names
You might also like Colombe, it means dove in French sort of combines the Cosima sound with Paloma meaning
