    Thoughts on Myriam?

    A new name we're considering is Myriam. I prefer this spelling, which is a genuine French spelling, but my husband worries it may look too trendy. What do you think? Is it ready for a comeback? Can we use it even if we're not Jewish? And how do you like it with Amelia as a sibset? Thanks!

    The y does make it look trendy. Amelia and Miriam would be gorgeous together, but I can't quite get behind Myriam.

    I love Miriam and it goes beautifully with Amelia. It's classic, feminine and uncommon but familiar. A winner.

    I adore Miriam, it's on my list. I prefer the Hebrew spelling, Miriam, as I think Myriam looks trendy. Miriam and Amelia are great together! Go for it

    Thank you ladies for your input.

    All the Myriams I've met were French and that's how they spelled their name. As I said, it's the traditional French spelling. But I can see why it could be considered as being a trendy spelling by some/most over here.

    Oh well, I love the name no matter the spelling, so I can go with Miriam.
