What's in a name?

We were taking a look at our list of possible names for the Tabulae Rasae (TR) Thibault. We're still considering the following names and etymologies:

For a girl:
Sophie (wisdom), Claire (clear), Elise (God's oath), Julie/Julia (gentle), Elodie (riches), Ines (chaste), Emily/Amelia (rival) , Maia/Maya (illusion)

For a boy :
Alexandre (defender of man), Luc (light), Zachary (remembered by God), Christophe (Christ-bearer), Philippe (friend of horses), Thomas (the doubter)

For the Chinese name, we are kind of just leaving it to my mother to deal with ... the joys of delegation!

I'm not sure if i responded to your name issue earlier - but I strongly vote for Sophie. Its a lovely, graceful name, and all the Sophie's I know are great people...

The interesting thing ive heard about the name Alexandre, is that it is one of (or the only name) that has been appropriated by so many cultures of the world. In Persian/ Urdu, its Sikander, in Malay its Iskandar, in English it Alexander in Russian, Alejandro and on and on....

by the way - I WANT A DOGGIE TOO........
