I live in a french society. Pronounced "EH-tee-enne"
Someone pronouncing it as "AY" makes me cringe. If you're using an acute accent for your baby's name and you don't speak french, please learn how to pronounce it or people who actually understand the language will judge that child lol

It's a french name. If you think it is better for a girl, please do not use it.

I agree. It's a beautiful name, but only on a boy.

caetano Says:


No. Use it on a boy.

caetano Says:


Gorgeous on a boy. Hideous on a girl. Stop culturally appropriating names in the US and using it on the wrong gender. Have some respect.

caetano Says:


erm, no. A lot better on a boy, since its a boy's name.

Sounds like ATM. It's feminine enough to be better as a girl's name.

Such a lovely name, but would sound a bit effeminate in the US. Perhaps it could serve here as a girl's name?
