You could take an Indian name and spell it the French way, e.g. Sant˘che. What the denizens of Chicago make of it is a completely different matter.

Give your child a straightforward, simple name. Do you want them to curse you all their lives?

We "denizens" of Chicago won't give a shit what the kid's name is.

After all, we have a Rahm and an Oprah.

No wonder !!!

You are just not satisfied with having 50% over all (i.e the last name) you want a 50% cut into the first name too

We are an Indian/American couple. We had chosen a name easily for a boy but were struggling with a girl's name (did not know gender in advance). I didn't want something difficult to pronounce! I wasn't keen that my daughter's middle name was going to be my husband's first name so she would already have an Indian middle name and an Indian last name. My husband told me to look at the meanings of possible names because everyone would ask. I thought that was weird - nobody had ever asked the meaning of my name. I finally chose a name that was just different enough and easy to pronounce. And yes EVERYONE asked what it meant!

So trying to be helpful and answer your question...I Googled baby names in Pondicherry(because of its French connection). I found girl names but no boy names. Then I saw Mahe, which is actually a district in Pondicherry. Looking up the meaning of Mahe I came across this...Used by Austrians to say "sh*t" or "damnit" when something isn't okay. So my first piece of advice is to be sure to research the meaning! :-)

Have you found any French names that you like? I'd make sure it sounds good with your last name.

Yeah ,finally we have down to two names , both of them are french and last name is indian. my wife wants it easy to pronounce as she says last name has 10 to 12 letters and so say first name would be 3 letters which makes it easy for all of us as french prounciation for the same name is different from english

Be hispanic - No tension First given name, second given name, Father's surname, Mother's surname. Like Shakira's - Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll !

How about the Indian name Ritwik ? Many French speakers will know this name because of the film director Ritwik Ghatak !


Or how about choosing the French name Alexandre ? It is well known in India because of Alexander the Great. It works well as the abbreviation Alex too, and is understood easily in English speaking countries worldwide.

But do spell it "Ritouic" or even "Ritouique".
