    I can't think of any ways to make fun of those names.

    I don't think so. The only thing that came to mind with the initials MG is the car, but they're a cool little car so all good. I think they're lovely names

    I can't think of any in-jokes.

    Kids might tease Marcel for being a foreign name (it's quite unusual here) and Colette for being old fashioned. But kids tease anything so don't let that stop you!

    Isn't marcel the name if that cool vampire chick on adventure time?

    I love Colette.

    Every name will make someone think of something - tease worthy or otherwise. Go with what u like.

    I think of Marcel the monkey off friends, but kids won't pick up on that.

    Cool - Thanks for your opinions!! :-)

    They are quite (read very) old fashioned French names.
    Might delete the names from my OP as I'm completely paranoid of someone that would know me irl finding about it.

    Blame it on the hormones!! ;-)

    Same as everyone else, can't think of any easy nasty names.
