    Realistic for an all-American girl?

    Lately I've been crushing on two very foreign-sounding names - Anouk and Constanza. I'm no part French and no part Italian, but I actually speak French fluently and plan on majoring in it in college (& there's like a 99% chance I'll study abroad somewhere French-speaking). Are these names realistic for a girl that isn't actually French or Italian? And what do you think of them?

    I feel that you should be okay, seeing as you speak the language and can properly pronounce the names. There might be trouble, though, when it comes to an American correctly pronouncing the name.
    Just a lonely teenager creating a life through characters. Budding author and future failure. I despise the idiots. The nameless berry.

    Yes! Especially if you're into French language and culture. Normally that kind of thing bothers me, but if you have a solid background it's totally fine.

    I don't like Anouk, (Uh-nook?) but Constanza is okay.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.
