In French it doesn't mean "cowled monk" like it says here -that would be for "capucin" without an "e". This pretty girl name Capucine is the name of an orange flower. And it's pronounced Ka-py-sin. Not Cappucin(o) -haha

babymagic Says:

Reminds me of the species of monkey.

I think of a small cafe or bakery, w macaroons and tea. Someone sophistocated, wealthy, or confident could wear this name, though others would assume she was a snob because of that name,, though she can be very kind if she gets what she wants the majority of the time, which is not too much to ask. She thinks everyone around her are such idiots some time, and that is totally true when it comes to her case. Don't let her vintage gowns and sparkly pearl pink bows fool you: Capucine has logic, the ability to reason, and leans in favor of world smart rather than textbook smart. She can make some laugh unintentionally, hates being stared at, and is quiet, but loud when she really must be heard.

Vespertinerose Says:


Very pretty, it doesn't sound like a flower name but the name sounds exotic and sparkles.
