French baby names can be an interesting alternative for your baby boy or baby girl. French culture is deeply European and their baby names usually give a sense of elegance, aesthetic perception and tact. They bring memories from the romantic city of Paris, the beautiful French Riviera which is located south of France and includes the tiny (but extremely rich) state of Monaco with its famous casinos and hotels.
French baby names will build an invisible mental connection to the renowned museum of Louvre, the iconic Eiffel Tower, the monumental the Arc de Triomphe, the French cousine (tasty croissants, exquisite wine, superior champagne) or the royal chambers of Château de Versailles where King Louis XI used to live in extreme luxury!
As you can imagine, all these attributes are somewhat linked to baby names in a way that we cannot imagine. Research shows that baby names can inspire notions, ideas, places, colors, tastes, places. In other words, memories that people build through the years. French culture is so deep and goes back in history, so the top French baby names listed below will no doubt bring certain feelings to people’s heart.
You will notice that some of the top French baby names are the same as the baby names of English origin
. This should be no surprise as the two countries are closely connected through history, even though they had a lot of wars between them! A prime example is Emma
which holds the number one spot in the top 10 French baby names and at the same time is extremely popular as an English baby name. The same applies for boys as Lucas (of Hebrew origin) is currently the most popular French baby name and at the same time one of the top names in US as well.
