Meaning: Crown, garland

Origin: French feminization of Étienne

Reason for Choosing: I found it on this blog and it interested me.

Opinion: I like it. I would never use it, but I think it’s cute. It’s very frilly and feminine, which may be a problem for girls who don’t want to be seen as frilly and cute. Very French, relatively exotic sounding. The accent is optional (an I would omit it fro anyone living somewhere that doesn’t use accents) and may be confusing for some.
