My close friend since kindergarten has this name, and we went to high school with another girl named Babette. I'm the only person who still calls her by her whole name; she introduces herself as Babs. I think of her nickname as sounding harsh and her full name as feminine and euphonious.

I know somebody with this name who pronounces it as Bay-bet. I would not name my kid this but it is not terrible.

Hi... my name is Babette! I am in my 40s.. my Creole grandmother named me and I LOVE MY NAME! I have never met anyone personally with this name although people have told me about old school mates or acquaintances with the same name! I only get compliments on my name or a very shocked "wow that's unusual". I only wish it had a more fabulous origin or meaning for it is SO BEAUTIFUL!

Babette is my middle name and I happen to like it and nobody has made fun of me because of it and my mother told me that it is French for baby, but I'm not sure about that. It is a nice name.

I honestly do like this name. It's decent at the least. And Babs is an adorable nickname, with a similar appeal that Mags/Maggie has as a nickname.

My only concern is that it'd be mispronounced as Babe-ette, which sounds really cheesy and not like a name...

Maybe Miette instead?

Clearly a French name. Also short for the Bernadette. Successful women named Babette are writers, entrepreneurs, actresses and designers.
If you're insecure with the unusual names, then stick with a common name.

This name reminds me of a female cartoon rabbit. But I also picture this on a character who is beautiful but stupid.

I think it's a really sweet name!

Wow, what's brought on all this Babette hatred?! I actually think it's a really pretty and elegant name, but sweet at the same time. It reminds me of Louis de Pointe du Lac's love interest from "Interview With The Vampire" and also of a sweet, intelligent, turn-of-the-century French girl. Babette is a beautiful name!

Wow. Jesus, who would name their kid this? It sounds like "baguette" to me.

This is. An odd name. But you have to admit, it's not NEARLY as odd as a million other names. For soem reason it sounds like "bobbin" to me.

Babette is the name given to the flirty featherduster character in the stage production of Beauty and the Beast. Her name isn't mentioned in the Disney movie the play was based on.

That is the ugliest name I've ever seen. Please, don't name your poor child Babette or else they will be made fun of and people would always say what an ugly name. If that were my name I would go to court and ask if my name can be changed.

This name always remind me of somebody's fancy French poodle with pink bows in her hair and painted toenails. The kind of dog who is carried around and cooed over by a little old rich lady, but whose bark could wake the dead and who wets the floor whenever she gets excited.

I always thought this name was French.
