A super unique and elegant name, but have to watch out that no one nicknames her "Sid". Would totally ruin the French taste.

headintheclouds Says:


I really like the idea of Sidonie-- its elegance and sophistication, how it just flows and has the same feel as Leonie, one of my favorite names. But I'd definitely have problems with pronunciation, since when I say it out loud or even just in my head Sidonie seems like a drawled-out Sydney or "see donnie". Definitely not for the non-French or Francophone me.

MichelleTherese Says:


In Tudor England, the name honored the Shroud of Turin. That makes it a nice choice for a miracle baby, religious parents, or history lovers.

Mary Says:


No, it's not pronounced like that in French. There is no accented syllable. It's more like saying sea-dough-knee.
