Noël or Noëlle?
So we want to use either Noël or Noëlle for a girl or a boy. Pronounced No-el both ways, as that's how it's said in french. But I was pondering if you could use Noël for both genders? or would you see Noël and instantly pronounce it like knoll. I never really understood the Knoll pronunciation, since even in the christmas carol it's said No-el. Any feedback would be appreciated Also any middle name suggestion would also be greatBoys names I love:

Girls names I love:

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

In German both are pronounces as No-el (with and without the umlaut) and I'm not a big fan of the English "nole" either.
I think Noelle (with or without the umlaut) is safer to get the pronunciation you desire as many will drop the umlaut and just read it as Noel (also the umlaut isn't found on most English keyboards making it harder to spell the name the way you want it).Rose Lavinia Charlotte & Edmund Theodore Hugo
