I Love Odette and Ouida
I also love Audrina.

Odette.


Audrina could get called 'Awd' and that is very unpleasant

Ouida is a 'How do you say that?' name


And because Odette is just beautiful, beautiful, beautiful....

hehe Ouida is Weeda
It's more a sentimental love i guess. My grandma had an elderly neighbour named Ouida, she had no children and herself was an only child, so had no neices and nephews and she spoiled us rotten when we went to visit grandma. We called her Aunty Ouida.

I love Ouida, and Audrina is lovely too, but I really don't like Odette. I'm not a fan of 'ette names on the whole (my name used to be Claudette, but I changed it), as I find them harsh soundly, and with Ode at the beginning, I think odour and odorous...

Ouida is more properly a nickname for Louise or Louisa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouida

Also, it sounds like Weeda, but is actually oo-eeda...

I am also not a fan of 'ette names and see nothing appealing about Odette. Audrina sounds like a name smoosh of Audrey and Andrina, don't really like.

Ouida is interesting, however I do think of the teasing potential when a name is essentially pronounced as Wee-da.

Maybe i'll have more luck picking a boys name...

I do love Ouida. My name is *****-Louise and I did get the occasional *****-Louise her pants at school but I had a pretty thick skin, and an even better right hook and it soon stopped. *blushes*

I dont like the way Ouida looks, first thing that came to mind was Ouija board.  Love Odette.

I'm not in love with Odette but its ok.

The other two names dont appeal to me at all.

Odette for me. Really like it. Odette Ouida would work.


Also like Audra, Odile, Odelia and Odetta.

Odette is stunning, I also like Odessa.

I'm not too familiar with the other two and can't say I like them...
