Very popular in Hungary, this first name, whose root name is Helene, means “sunburst”. In France, it has been growing since the turn of the 2000s.

Of Spanish origin, the first name Marie-Soleil is, in Quebec, on the decline: it is less and less popular since2011 (35 girls so named in 2011, compared to 13 in 2016). The little girls who bear this first name would be altruistic, dynamic, daring, determined and independent, while being sweet and attached to family values. Other first names with similar sounds: Solène and Solveig.
Rare in France as in Quebec (Ozalée was chosen by Quebec parents twice in 2016 only), this first name is of Native American origin and means "rising sun". Ozalée would be known to be a sensitive, faithful, sentimental, friendly and affectionate little girl.
You immediately think of Yoko Ono, famous companion of John Lennon. This name is popular especially in Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. It means "child of the sun".

However, we attribute to this first name qualities of charm, sociability, coquetry, sensitivity and perfectionism.
