    Thank you SO much for you help! Those are all great! Do you have any thoughts on "Leonie?" That is one that I am really liking. It's hard to pick one that the american tongue won't slaughter. A lot of the french names are beautiful but wouldn't sound near as good here in the states. And I don't want her to have to say her name over and over when people ask her how to say her name. I don't really mind if the name is "dated" as long as it's very French, although a new trendy french name would be very neat too! Thank for you help!!

    I would avoid using Mignonette, Nanette & Lunette. That sounds french but that's not used in France. NEVER. You will never meet someone having these names. Though, Mauricette is usable but very dated!
    Aurelie, Elodie (most of them are born between 1980 & 1992) & Sylvie (born between 1955 and 1965/70) are really dated.
    Suzette is used only as a nn.
    Colette, Odette, Bernadette, Yvette, Jacqueline are not old enough to be usable in France. Though, I lovvvve Odette & Jacqueline.
    Francine is french but used everywhere in Europe: Germany, Switzeland ...
    Avaëlle doesn't really exist. Evaëlle more.
    Marielle is really dated too.

    Iris (Eereess), Camille, Nine (Neen, in fn or nn), Nina, Lise, Lison, Elise, Léopoldine, Séraphine, Léontine, Célestine, Céleste, Ninon, Manon, Fanchon, Isaure, Colombe, Charlotte, Marilou, Alice, Marie, Victoire, Victorine, Honorine, Amélie, Sophie, Typhaine (Ti-feyn), Cassandre, Marthe, Marcelle, Esmée, Octavie, Florène, Clotilde, Constance, Cleophée (Cley-ophey) , Doriane, Daphné, Béryl, Bérénice, Domitille, Othilie (Oteelee), Bertille, Emeraude (Aym-rode), Brunehilde, Amandine, Marion, Charline, Maurane, Agathe ...

    You mostly can add -ine at the end of all names. Marcelline, Martine, Améline, Alexine ... But imo, that's not a pretty trend!

    Edit: I also thought of Carine or Karine, Paule (dated!), Pauline, Thérèse, Henriette, Pascale (dated!), Mylène (mee-leyn), Mélaine (mey-leyn), Birgitte (dated), Christine (dated), Jeanne, Cécile, Anne, Hélène, Adrienne (love that one!), Gabrielle, Lucille.

    I might have forgotten some accents. Sorry.
    Good luck.

    Monet and vionet are not French girls names, they are surnames which implies they are usually masculine and vionette is also a brand of clothing and perfume.

    Athena Beatrice - Beatrice Cecile - Eleanor Anne-Sophie -Myriam Beatrice - Meredith Elizabeth
