Also, at least Jason seems to have some common sense to veto the middle name. Who names their kid Bloom? Neysa is beyond annoying to me today, lol
Man, you are just a wee bit harsh! Many people, myself included, doesn't know how to pronounce Les Miserables correctly. If you've not really been exposed to it how are you going to know different? I literally say it as an English person would read it cos I figure better to take the piss than to totally screw up trying to pronounce it.
You’d think if they named their kid after the show, they’d know how to pronounce it though.
She said it's not after the show though. They've seen it in a baby name book (spelled Cosette) back when they were preg with Hannahniah.
Cosette is from Les Misérables and nowhere else. So she didn't named her kid from a show because, hey ignorant Neyssa
, Les Misérables IS A BOOK !! She totally named her after "the show" because, she never read that book and I highly doubt she got the original idea before Victor Hugo in 1862 !! She spelled it coZette that's the only thing original about it... I read that book at 12 and never in the world thought that was a suitable name !
Younger I got the name Elea (https://translate.google.fr/?hl=fr#fr/en/ÉLÉA
) in my mind from a sf book, no shame for that, my husband also loved the book "la nuit des temps" by Barjavel as a teenager. We were talking about naming a girl Elea and a freaking stroller
got the name before !! Talk about Elea to a french mom, she'll think you're talking about your stroller, it ruined everything ! Since then the name became so popular it's ridiculous. Goodbye Elea.
Tell me about cozette I'll think about child abuse and nothing else !
And for pronunciation issues, use google translate, it reads words for you in a funny voice when you hit the speaker : https://translate.google.fr/?hl=fr#fr/e ... misérables
