I think it is a very abrupt, but beautiful name. It all depends on how you look at it. Pronounced: Oh-Det. In English this name means 'Little Song'. It is a symbol of 'wind' and a month of April. 'Odette' is a name of peace and power. What I love about this name is that it is rare and unusual. Nobody in my school, or town had this name. I Love it! :)

The lead lady in "Swan Princess" and the ballet "The Swan Lake" is called Odette.

Such a sweet and delicate name. It always reminds me of the princess from Swan Lake, so that's what I always associate the name with - graceful, beautiful, and utterly feminine.

Usually this sort of name would sound to harsh or hard to me, but since I associate it with the princess from The Swan Princess I think of it as feminine, elegant, and beautiful. I probably wouldn't use it for a child, though.

I always think of the movie 'Swan Princess' and Odette is such a goody-goody, so I dislike the names.

Odette from the Swan Princess a goody goody? She throws a tomato at her fiance and always wins at cards and flirts with the castle guards! Only when she's a kid though. I love that film! Odette is so much better than some modern names. Tiphanie? Princess? AMERICA?! Come on!

I never liked this name. It sounds like odor to me. And who wants to be an unpleasant smell?

I think Odette is a lovely name! Especially if put with Marie, Marie-Odette, if you wanted it a bit more feminine but I see no problems with Odette on it's own!

I like the name Odette and don't at the same time, if that makes any sense at all. I think of the Swan Princess also. I liked the character Odette when she was young, then not as much when she was grown up and in love with Derek and all that mushy stuff lol.

Odette is not the name of a fairy in Swan Lake. The character is a woman that has been transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer. [noted -ed]

I'm sorry but Odette is really ugly-sounding. I just can't see the appeal of it.

Odette was a very popular name in France from about 1900 to 1930, but has since declined in popularity and is very uncommon for baby girls born today.

The Swan Lake reference is awesome. I think Odette is a beautiful name.

According to my book: 'Baby Names from Around the World' by Maxine Fields, Odette is a variation of Odele which is Greek, meaning: melody

I love unusual names like this! I hadn't heard it prior to watching the Swan Princess animated film. I was glad when her name was announced that it wasn't something I'd heard of before, but I did think to myself that it wasn't a pretty name. It's not frilly fru fru like most princess names tend to be, which also gives it that extra bit of 'specialness'.
