    Looking for 'INE' names to add to my list!

    I adore girl names with the ending 'ine'. (Usually pronounced EEN as in teen, but I don't mind the occasional INE as in mine.)

    I generally like names that are classic, but uncommon. Those that 'sound French' (though not necessarily French in origin) are my favourites.

    Here are a few that I love. I pronounce all of these with the EEN ending, unless otherwise noted.

    Ameline
    Apolline
    Augustine
    Coraline (prn. line)
    Cymbeline
    Emmeline
    Josephine
    Madeline (prn. line)
    Marceline
    Rosaline

    Which are your favourites and can you suggest any alternatives which might be added to my list?

    Thanks for the great suggestions!

    I love Jessamine but unfortunately it's the name of a rather nasty character in a murder mystery I wrote! Oops! Shouldn't use nice names for bad characters!

    I want to like Adeline, but because I'm such a fan of Madeline it feels like someone missed off the 'M'!

    Evangaline and Sabine are sweet. I have a good friend who is Sabina!

    None of the others really stand out. Though I feel Leontine could definitely grow on me.

    What do people think of Sixtine? I feel it wouldn't work outside of France because of the 16 association, but I kind of love it.
