GISELLE
I LOVE MY NAME BUT PEOPLE PROUNCE IT WRONG :[
Giselle
I love my name,I have never met anybody with the same name,only heard of people with same name.Men find it attractive and I think it helps with the work I do as people don't forget it easily. The only downside is most people cannot pronounce it very well and you get Gizzelle and Gazzelle,my sister has shortened it to Gizzy and my friends call me Gis,but I do like how it rolls off my tongue when people ask me my name.I think it is a very attactive name and like the fact i have yet to meet another Giselle. I also think it suits my outgoing personality and I am artistic too which suits me as a whole.
Giselle
Love my name, is so unique and its nice to be the only giselle in the class :)

Why am I named Gisselle,well,that's because I'm one of a kind people.

I read somewhere that this name is pronounced GIZ-ELL in French and GEE-ZAH-LA in German. However, can't find the German pronunciation anywhere! Is that true? If not, how do you pronounce it the German way?
