    What do you think about this uncommon name?

    Hello,

    What is your opinion on the name Cézanne for a boy?
    Paul Cézanne was a French artist and painter. I think the name is easy to pronounce, colorful and sweet. Am I the only one?

    Thank you.
    If parents decide to choose a name from a certain culture, they must respect that culture and the gender for which the name was historically given

    I like it a lot, but it seems like it would fit better on a girl. The 'anne' ending seems very feminine.

    It's too feminine for a boy, imo. Reminds me of Suzanne

    I think it has a very lovely sound and a nice history behind it. I can see how it seems feminine with the "-anne" ending, but I personally think of the male artist right away when I hear/see it. I think Americans who are unfamiliar with the name/artist would definitely pronounce in "say-ZAN", rhyming with Suzanne (which makes it sound more feminine) rather than with the softer "say-ZAHN" sound.

    I like it! And I don't think the somewhat femme spelling is really a problem at all. Seems like I name that could be pulled off by any gender to me given that it was a surname.
