Crushing on Giselle!

    I read this somewhere today and I’m all of a sudden in love!! I don’t know DH’s thoughts on it but my guess is that if we used it, it’d only be a middle. What first names do you like with it? Any of these?? Others??? :)

    Cora Giselle
    Maia Giselle
    Molly Giselle

    I’d love it with a three syllable first name but we already have three girls with short two syllable names so it wouldn’t be the best fit I don’t think.

    I’m also super crushing on Maggie….

    Argh I hate to be a downer but I also want to be honest and maybe provide insight into something that could make or break it depending on if it bothers you or not :/
    The Giselle I knew was constantly being teased with the nickname ”Jiz”, Gazelle, or being compared to the model (which could be a good thing I guess if people aren’t being malicious about it). It also kind of reminds me of a classier Jezabelle and I know that gets a bad rap…
    Anyway, please don’t take offense. Giselle looks so pretty, kids can just be too cruel with pronunciation :(
    Ps., Love Maggie! I think it would be a perfect fit with your girl!

    I really like it in the MN spot. I could see the teasing potential as a FN but I don’t think it would be as big of a deal as a MN.
    I really like Cora Giselle, but all those are pretty options. I do think you could get away with a 3-syllable middle name if you want though as long as it’s similar in style to your other girls’ names.

    Hmmm I guess I could see the potential for teasing but I don’t think it’d be an issue in the middle. :)

    That’s true, it definitely works in the middle!

    I always liked Giselle as a middle! I always find it really hard to pair up, but I still like it. It reminds me of Enchanted, haha. My favorite combo for it was always Hannah Giselle (still like that combo!), but I also like Claire Giselle and Opal Giselle. I really like Cora Giselle from your options!

    Ooh, I really like Giselle. But I agree, best in the middle name slot, it’s got a lot of teasing potential. But I think it works there!!

    I like Cora Giselle, or I really think it would sound great with something 3-syllable. What if you went with something that had a 2-syllable nickname to match your other girls? I think so long as the style’s not too different and you like the name, you shouldn’t restrict yourself to just 2-syllables….
