It says that the origin is Norwegian. That is not true.

vintageisfave Says:


Etoile is beautiful. It is pronounced ay-twall. I can't see how people are linking it to a toilet.

june7rose Says:


People. Good lord, what's wrong? Did my liking the name dig at you personally for
some reason? Is it France, education, or stars that so offends you?

LilAuburn13 Says:


I was unware knowing French was a requirement for being considered educated. Also, you might want to learn how to spell 'people' before you spout nonsense about what makes an educated person.

june7rose Says:


Star. Pretty, and pronounceable for educated peopled.

indiefendi2 Says:


There's still Estelle! Etoile is pretentious anyway.

helenlouise Says:


Oh that's sad, I just saw this at the top and thought ah beautiful, French for star! Yet the comments stating its similarity to 'toilet' really do have a point and now that's all I can see.

Ivory88 Says:


I agree with Indiefendi. While I know how to pronounce it, I don't like seeing the letters t-o-i-l-e poking out at me when I look at someone's name. My mind immediately goes to toilet.

Guest Says:


it's not very usable in the English world. People will pronounce it phonetically and make it sound like toilet *sigh*.

vintageluvs Says:


How usuable is Etoile? I know how to pronounce it, which is good (thank God for five years of intense French), but can Etoile really be used in the English-speaking world?
