After a long discussion last night, and input from DH's parents who arrived in the UK today, we've slightly narrowed the list down, everything feels a lot clearer in my head too - thank you Nameberry! Our new rough list is the following...
Pippa - had doubts about how usable this was in France, but we briefly mentioned it to DH's parents, and they are in love with the idea of their little English granddaughter being named Pippa... it's recognised enough there thanks to Pippa Middleton, apparently. It's firmly back on the table now.
Romilly - worried that the spelling and pn of this might not be so obvious in French.
Rosemary nn Romy - would Rosemarie be a more appropriate spelling?
Sixtine - really really love this, if we planned on living in France alone this would be my first choice
Beatrix - I absolutely love this. It's a nice English link via Beatrix Potter who is incredibly important to me.
Emma - Family name which we both adore (Leonard would have been Emma Dorothy after my grandmother) but popularity is an issue.
Manon - same with Emma. I actually think of Manon as the French Emma... such a perfect, classic name but ridiculously overused.
Francoise - originially mentioned as a joke, in reference to Francoise Hardy, but I definitely feel this is at least a mn possibility now.
Clara - family name that we don't quite love enough for the first spot.
Again, any suggestions of combinations would be greatly appreciated since I have literally no skill in pairing names!
