    Red face French girls middle names that go with Marion.....

    Hi everyone

    I am having my second child in June 2013 and can find out the sex at the end of January. My first daughter's name is Brigitte (as in Brigitte Bardot a personal idol of mine) and her middle name is Alena (my Lithuanian great-grandmothers first name). We have already chosen a boys name: Henry but I am struggling to choose a girls name.

    I have a slight obsession with all things French and am a particular fan of 1950's and 60's French cinema (and pretty much anything else from that era!!!).

    My current top girls name is Marion (like actress Marion Cotillard) but am struggling to think of a middle name that goes with this. Any ideas anyone??? I would really appreciate any help/advice/ideas. Or any other French or Parisienne-style girls names that I may not have come across would be great!

    Thanks so much in advance!!!

    Will also just add that we are in England

    I would be happy to come up with a long list for you later, if you like '50s-'60s cinema I recommend you look for "ette" names just be aware that some words like Lucette, Miette, Musette are not really names though they may have been used a few times.

    Some you might like

    Josette
    Rosette
    Dominique
    Honorine

    Ismèrie
    Norine
    Ettienette
    Louisette
    Franceline
    Thaïs
    Emerence
    Ombeline
    alexandrine
    Aliette
    Aloise
    Alphonsine
    Cleophee
    Baptistine
    Arsene
    Lysiane

    Because you love French films and have a daughter named Brigitte (like Bardot), I propose to you the following names as a subtle not to French cinema

    Camille (Bardot's role in Godard's Le Mepris)
    Martine (Jeanne Moreau's role in Meurtres) not sure how you feel about this with Marion but I like it)
    Mathilde (Marion Cotillard's role in L'histoire du garçon qui voulait qu'on l'embrasse)
    Severine (Catherine Deneuve in Belle du jour though I'm not sure it's an appropriate name)
    Anouk - Anouk Aimee: La Dolce Vita,Un Homme et une femme, 8 1/2, etc...great actress!
    Simone - Simone Signoret: La Ronde, Les Diaboliques, Room at the Top
    Aloise - Isabelle Hupert's role in Aloise
    Mireille- Mireille Darc
    Delphine - Delphine Seyrig

    I'm on my phone so please excuse any autocorrections and random use of accents, I will update the list when I can!

    I like Colette, Mirielle and Anais as middle names.

    Have fun!
