    Thoughts on Odette? Any Middle Name Ideas??

    Hi All!

    DH and I are expecting our first in February. We've both really loved the name Odette for a girl for awhile. The Swan Lake/ballet connection, the French flair, the familiarity and old-fashioned nature of it despite its never having appeared on the social security register all really appeal to me. But I don't know if I'm 100% sold which is why I'm soliciting some feedback.

    One major hiccup for me is that I almost feel it works better as a middle name as I'm having trouble finding middle names I think go well with it. We'd like to have two middle names. Our last name starts with an "M," is two syllables and ends in an "-er."

    Feedback on the name in general? Ideas for middle name pairings?? All would be appreciated. Thanks!

    My lovely fluffy bunny was called Odette She was adorable. We called her Detty or Dets for short.

    Great name choice!

    As for middle names I think longer syllable middles sound best with Odette. After the longer first middle name, any syllable lengths sound ok. Examples:

    Odette Maria Claire
    Odette Susannah Isabelle

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    Thanks, renrose! I particularly like Odette Maria Claire. I think the 2-3-1 syllable ratio works really well... I'll try to come up with more combos like that...
