Comments for LÉOPOLDINE:

A famous bearer of this name was Léopoldine Cécile Marie-Pierre Catherine Hugo (28 August 1824 - 4 September 1843), she was a daughter of the famous French novelist, poet and dramatist Victor Hugo, who died in the river Seine with her husband when their boat capsized on 4 September 1843. He dedicated numerous poems to the memory of his daughter, notably Demain dès l'aube and À Villequier in Pauca Meae, the fourth book of Les Contemplations. Demain des l'aube is a poem about Victor Hugo's experience traveling from his house to his daughter's grave... Apart from this rather sad association, I think the name is rather lovely. :)

I prefer Leopoldina. Either name is lovely with the nickname Polly.
