"I love my name, Antoinette. After taking 6 years of French, I loved it even more because I learned how to pronounce it as the French do. As an adult, I really loved the uniqueness and sensual sound of it even though everyone still calls me ?Toni?. When I meet new people I introduce myself as Antoinette." May. 23, 2020:

"I love my name :) Although many people spell it the wrong way (exchanging the i and o).
I'm Dutch and here it's pronounced the French way, with the first syllable sounding like "ahn", where the English speaking people pronounce that syllable as "ann"." Jun. 22, 2006:

"I love my name and the way it is spelt, must people find it difficult to pronounce but still they love it and love to try pronouncing it, sometimes I spend time teaching them to pronounce it well." Sep. 5, 2013:
"I always try to variate my name Antoinette for some reason. Although people tell me that it sounds feminine or pretty and sophisticated, sometimes I wish I were named after the variation of Antonia, because it sounds a bit more feminine to me since it has the A at the end of it. Either way, I've used nicknames like Tony for a more masculine feel, Anna for a laid back feel ,Annie for family, Ant for short simple, sweet, Tonya for something a bit different, etc. It's definitely a name that seems to suit me very well in terms of personality, although I always want to change as a person, and Antoinette is just the kind of name that is what it is , in my opinion."
