I started my baby names list when I was about 13 years old. And I renamed myself Kelly. My sister still makes fun of me to this day. Why Kelly? I was a big fan of Beverly Hills 90210. Imagine ! (* I have nothing against Kellys, in fact, I have a friend whose name is Kelly and she is a delightful lady ! I am just kinda embarrassed about my thirteen-year-old-self*)
I’d add a new name on the list – mostly girl names , although I recall having a Lorenzo on there too – ever heard of Lorenzo Lamas? Renegade? – and would erase a few as I was growing up, as the names I had chosen before didn’t reflect my new “cool” personality anymore.
Anyways, in the past few years, as a university student, I was pretty stuck on one girl name. I was going around about how I would never change my mind, not in a million years. I wanted to call my future child: Paris. I absolutely loved the name and thought that was it.
Then the name Charlotte kinda stuck around. And I loved it so much that I decided to keep it too. So it would be Paris Charlotte. Then I thought Charlotte Paris sounded better.
And then I got pregnant. And it became a whole different story. We were actually given the responsibility to name our child. Give her the best start in life. We were going to keep Charlotte but we wanted a middle name – a classic French one. We didn’t look very long.
Sixtine (pronounced Sixteen) is a fairly classic French name with latin origins which also refers to the Chapel Sistine.
What a beautiful name ! Charlotte Sixtine. Sixtine. Isn’t Sixtine beautiful? How about Sixtine Charlotte. Sixtine Charlotte sounded just right.
Our daughter is a very bubbly, sweet, bright little girl and her name suits her perfectly.
