The story behind Soleil's name


Soleil is not a typical French name. Soleil means sun in French but we do not usually use it for a name.

Monet "Soleil levant"

Mimi was doing a search paper on Monet and we were talking about the painting "Soleil levant".
Then i said to Mimi that Soleil would be a cute name for the baby. She agreed, then hubby said he really liked it.
I thought about it and thought that Soleil was a happy name and perfect!
It may have been 2 days before delivery...I really thought she would have no name...better late than never! LOL

I LOVE the name, and since I'm not French, I don't know how to pronounce it. Is it so-LAY? Please help me out here. What a sweet baby.

How do you pronounce it. It looks pretty just like she does.
