    Clémence or Constance?

    Hello berries,
    I have both on my list but they are just so similar! Can you help me decide by telling which one do you like better and why?
    Similar style ideas and middle name suggestions, not necessary French, would be a great addition to your vote.
    Thank you in advance!

    I love Constance, it makes me think of Constance Bonachieux from The Three Musketeers. I haven't read the book (I have to say), but she's a cool character in the BBC series. And, of course, Constance is a gorgeous name!

    I prefer Clemence or Clementine, as Clemmy is such a cute nn!

    Are you French or live in France (or a french-speaking part of the world)?
    If so, I think Clémence is beautiful, airy and sweet.
    If not, Clémence will be butchered a lot and you won't get the French pronunciation you are going for. And people will try going for the French one when seeing the accent.
    Constance is wonderful and seems easier to say in English.
