I adore this name. It looks like it's very unchanged from Provencal times, and it's the name of a main character from a novel of mine.

"Ghislaine" looks like a transient ghost of time. Beautiful in an eerie kind of way.

This name sounds like it would belong to a model, or someone else VERY beautiful. I like it!

My mom's name is Ghislaine, a few years ago no one had ever heard such a name here in Brazil, but lately it's a fever to put Ghislaine's as maids in soap operas. Uh.

It's definitely pronounced Ghee-Lehn in France. Gh is a hard G sound, and the S is silent. [noted -ed]

My child self saw this name in a book as the name of a dragon and decided it was obviously pronounced Ghiss-layn-ney, which is totally and utterly wrong, but I really like the sound of it.

In most of France, we pronounce it zhees-LEN, with a soft S, like "toss". I've never heard it pronounced zheez-LEN, with a hard S. In Belgium it's pronounced ghee-LEN.

I like it. It sounds very upper-class and sophisticated.
