    I think all these names are gorgeous, but I can say with certainty that here in the states, they will get butchered. People will say:
    Isaure - eye-ZORE or ih-SAUR (like the last part of dinosaur)
    Bethsabée - I know the correct prn, but people here will say BETH-sa-bee.
    Solveig - people in the US will think it's SAUL-vig.
    Montaine - This is probably the most usable. Won't confuse with "mountain." I quite like this one.

    Good luck!

    Thank you so much everyone! Your input is priceless.
    I will make sure to come share my babe's birth announcement here.
    Plus, there's more fun to come with the 2nd and 3rd names which will be Dutch (dad's nationality) and American.

    Warmly,
    Isabelle.
