Top French Baby Names

When choosing a name for your baby, you should not only consider the direct meaning of the name but also how it sits with the baby’s surname and middle name(s). French names provide an element of traditional european romance, while also remaining fairly uncommon outside of French speaking nations so possess an element of originality. Gifting your baby with a truly beautiful name is important, remember it will most likely be the word they will hear most during their childhood.

Baby names originating from France often provide a unique combination of rolling continents & soft vowels. Traditional French names are chosen with fusion, strength, honour and of course elegance in mind.

Historically, French language descended from Vulgar Latin, dating from the first and second century when France was conquered by the Romans, however the most commonly found French names tend to be associated with key religious figures and saints, such as ‘Jean-Baptiste’. Although many traditional French names have been simplified using phonetic spellings, the originals can provide an added element of originality with a chic twist.
