bi-lingual baby names

I have a ton of pregnant friends right now and so many of them aren't finding out the sex nor announcing baby names. The suspense!! I've always loved finding out the sex early on as a sort of reward half way through a difficult pregnancy (aren't all pregnancies difficult? mine were!) but also so we could settle on baby names!


In Montreal we have the added challenge of making sure our baby names are bilingual. Lily-Catherine (Lily), Olivier (Oli), and ChloĆ© were obviously our top picks but I have a long list that I didn't get around to using.  So if you happen to be looking for a bilingual baby name, here's a few that give me big heart eyes.

BOYS: Hugo, Felix, Oscar, Sebastien
GIRLS: Clementine, Lucy/Lucie, Beatrice, Clara, May/Mai, Sophie

  2. Haha that's funny, I love the names of your kids, but am not such a big fan of most of the names on your list!

    1. lol! well we definitely chose our top three ;) But as a rule I like less common names, and more "grandma" type names and Brad doesn't!

    I au paired in France last summer and the family was Australian/French so they also had that challenge! Their kids names were Olivia, Eloise, Matilda and William and I LOVED the names Eloise and Matilda!

    1. those girl's names are just incredible! Eloise! I've always loved Olivia too, but after naming my son Olivier, the girl's version was obviously not an option lol!
