    First name for middle name Antoinette?

    My friend's name is Lisa-Marie Antoinette, last name is one syllable with '-ee' sound.
    She's looking for a first name for the mn Antoinette, any help is appreciated It's a little difficult for me to come up with name combos for it. She liked Catherine and Emmeline.
    Thanks!

    So, is she renaming herself? I'm confused!

    Antoinette doesn't really work with -a names, but I don't think it sounds great with -ne names, either - it's a lot of back to back N sound! If her last name is something like "Lee," I'd avoid names ending in that sound. So...

    Names ending in the S or L sound are calling to me!

    Arabelle
    Adele
    Giselle
    Hazel*
    Isabel*
    Lucille*
    Mirabelle
    Maribelle
    Mariel
    Mabel*
    Noelle
    Rosabel

    If her last name is Lee, though, ends-in-L names aren't great, so...

    Alice
    Beatrice*
    Beatrix
    Cadence
    Candace
    Celeste
    Elise*
    Eloise*
    Frances
    Florence*
    Louise

    Marked my favorites!
