Narrowing it down

Of the two girls names

Carine Rousseau and Carine Lilianne which middle name do you think suits the first name better? I absoulutley love the name Carine and I have always loved French culture that's why I'm drawn to French names.  I think Rousseau is quite a unique middle name and I think it completes Carine extremely well.  But on the other hand does it sound too much like a last name? Lilianne I think is just a beautiful name in general, but I don't think it compliments Carine as well.  Feed back is much appreciated!!

Of course Rousseau sounds like a last name.  It IS a last name, and a very famous one at that.

Do you have a reason for liking Rousseau or have you just chosen it for the sound? If you really like the philosopher, I'd stick with that, but otherwise I'd go with Lilianne.

 I like both but for very different reasons. 

Rousseau would be amazing, but I'd definitely wonder if there was a  'justification' for it. It's so dramatic and refreshing - quite dignified. 

 

Lilianne is far more approachable, if you will. It feels very famliar as well.

 

Congratulations and best of luck!
