    I love Calla, but not so fussed on Miette. I also think it sounds a bit like Call Me Ette (in a bad Italian accent, at least in my head), but it might just be me. Even so, it's hardly awful.

    My fiancee jokes that we'll only call her a little crumb when she's throwing a hissy fit in the middle of a Wal-Mart and neither of us want to claim her as our child :lol:

    In French miette literally means 'crumb.' As in the small bits left over after a loaf of bread has been on a plate. It's just as name-like as Crumb would be in English (meaning, absurd not at all name-like).

    Luckily there are loads of French names which have an identical rhythm to Miette [which admittedly has a pretty sound and cadence]-- Simone, Cecile, Celeste, Yvette, Sandrine, Camille, Babette, Chantal, Christine, Clarisse, Colombe, Corinne, Cosette, Delphine, Elise, Estelle, Felice, Francine, Georgette, Helene, Jacquette, Jeannine, Josette, Justine, Lisette, Lucette, Lucille, Margot, Ninette, Odette, Roxanne, Suzette, Victoire-- all sound great, and are much more usable (throughout a girl/woman's life) than Crumb.
