    Silhouette would be like naming your child Mirror or Shoe, so I'd say no. It's one of those words that just doesn't look like it could be a name, Alouette however, is much nicer.

    I'm going to be in the minority. I think Silhouette could be a nice, quirky middle. If you love it, then go for it!

    Alouette no (cheese brand)

    but Silhouette?

    It surely is a cool word!

    I don't think I would name a child that, but I do like the word and sound.

    And as a middle name, sure. I think there is great latitude in middle names.

    I am weary of the judgement against word names. One person likes a word name, another doesn't. Unless it is a horrible word (Garbage, Typhoid, Creep), it really is personal choice, not an affront to All Decent Names!

    Silhouette is a beautiful word, but I don't think it would make a nice name. Alouette seems like it might have more potential as a name, but unfortunately it is a popular brand of cheese spreads....

    Alouetta is beautiful, but I don't like Silhouette.

    I guess it's got a sort of pretty sound, but...
