Help with middle name for Estelle

Our second daughter is due in 2 weeks. We are pretty sure on the first name - Estelle. Her last name (also French) is long and almost unpronoucable in English!

We are looking for something short and simple, to balance the long name. Preferably bilingual so that both of our families can pronounce it. Some ideas we like are: Kate (me), Chloe (DH), and Anne (me).

Do you have any suggestions for us? TIA.

 (p.s. what do you think of Estelle?)

  • Estelle Grace sounds nice :) I like Estelle Anne out of the choices you gave though :)

  • Estelle is nms. Out of the three I would choose Kate. I don't think Chloe or Anne sounds good with Estelle.

  • Estelle Marie is the first thing that came to mind, as soon as I saw the title.  Marie is a popular French name as well, isn't it?  It should be easy for your relatives to pronounce.  Good luck!
