    They are both beautiful names, but I think of them more of the Greek or Italian flavors. It surprises me. I would think names like these would flourish much more.

    Sylvie
    Camille
    Francine
    Gabrielle
    Angelique
    Zenia
    Penelope
    Helene
    Marguerite
    Esme
    Belle
    Danielle
    Caroline
    Emilie
    Annabelle
    Raine
    Brie
    Renee
    Aurelie
    Victoire


    All of which are so much more of a french origin.

    Only about 23% of Canadians are native French speakers, hence there is not as much of a French flavour in name stats as some people may expect. Even in Quebec (French speaking), William is the top boys name. Plus, Renee, Francine, Danielle are kind of dated in French culture. The top names in Quebec are here: http://www.rrq.gouv.qc.ca/Interactif...aspx?langue=en Also, you can see France's top names here: http://www.youcantcallitit.com/2010/...ch-baby-names/
