Heck, ok. I may as well do a name thread, too. Got nothing better to do to kill time for the next few weeks
Ok, the baby's name is Madeleine, French pronunciation (mad-LYN). I am Cajun, and my heritage is important to me. DH has NO IDEA what he is and doesn't care all that much.
So French first name, and I am wanting to also have a French 2nd name, then it will be my last name as a 3rd name (which is French, LeBlanc), and dh's last name as a last (Glenn).
So, here are the current contenders:
Anaise - this is my #1 choice, hands down. It was my great grandmother's name, and I love it. dh seems a little more ambivalent on it. (Ana-EESE)
Alizé - It means the trade wind. (Al-e-ZAY)
Soleil - Sun! (soul-AY)
Azure - (a-ZURE) blue sky
Cécile - another family name (say-SEEL)
Hélicie - Sunshine! (ay-lease-SEE)
Dh hasn't had much imput on this yet and is driving me nuts. But of course, the final decision will be one he'll be on
I don't much care whether or not people will know how the heck to pronounce properly. My name is Rachel and people have struggled with that all my life. And Madeleine of the French origin also seems hard for some people. I have figured out it simply doesn't matter if your name is Bob, someone will have an issue figuring it out at some point.
But I thought I would ask opinions, cause it's fun.
Poll to follow momentarily!
