    TTC and starting to think about a sibset - French English Names!!!!

    My DH has a daughter from a previous relationship whose name is Emma. He loves classic names like Emma and Alexander. I like names that are familiar and vintage. For example, Arthur and Sylvie (which are names that I love). We will be honoring our relatives with the middle name position.

    Our children will grow up bilingual (French-English). They will attend a French school and speak English at home. We are looking for names that sound good in French and English. For example, Luc or Sebastian - these are both off the table as his cousins have used these names).

    We also want the names to somewhat go with Emma - it's very common and not my cup of tea.

    What do you suggest?

    Genevieve - not a fan
    Adele/Adelaide - I think it will be too trendy with singer Adele
    Josephine - I once named a cat this name so no
    Juliette - DH's cousin's name
    Beatrice - I like this and he does not.
    Bernadette - not quiet enough

    Henri - I love this and he does not.
    Leo - I love this and DH says its okay.
    Julian - never thought of this and will bring it up to DH

    Thanks for the ideas. I think you're getting close.
