France's first lady has a baby girl...but what should she call her?

Four men and a little lady…France’s first couple already have four sons from previous marriages so we ask what should they call their first baby girl? It’s a necessary poll.

A proud Pappa: French President Nicolas Sarkozy receives an oak tree, as a gift after the birth of his daughter.

FRENCH PRESIDENT NICOLAS Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni have welcomed a baby girl into the world.

Rumours have it that the baby has been named Dalia (or Dahlia). However, no official confirmation has been received.

Bruni, who turns 44 this year, already has one ten-year old son called Aurelian. Sarkozy’s three sons are named Louis (14), Jean (25) and Pierre (26). Earlier today, the President told reporters he would allow his wife to reveal the baby’s name.

He also said that mother and baby were doing “very well” and that he feels a “very profound happiness”.

So, what do you reckon France’s first couple should call their first bébé fille?

Is Da(h)lia – the name of a nice flower – appropriate? Or should they choose something more traditional, such as Camille, Sophie or Renée?

Maybe Bruni’s celebrity will catch up with her and she will go with something more unconventional – Apple or Sage Moonblood anyone?

What do you think she should be called?


Poll Results:

I don't care (242)
Something Irish, for the craic (159)
Dahlia (29)
Nicola, after her father (20)
Dalia (18)
Virginia, after her grandfather (whose fortune she could one day inherit) (13)
Emma, the most popular girl's name in France last year (11)
