1661 French Baby Names With Meanings

Delicious Brie cheese, the magnificent Eiffel Tower, and the sophisticated Chanel fashion house, France is indeed the country of cultural richness. And just like the French history, even the French baby names are a fusion of honor, strength, and elegance. The names have an element of European romance, while being relatively uncommon outside the French-speaking nations.

In a polite usage, a French person’s name is preceded by Monsieur for male, Madame for females, Mademoiselle for unmarried females, Mondamoiseau for young gentleman, and Maître for both men and women.

French people have one or two given names, of which one is used in the daily life, and the other is used in the official documents. Traditionally, a French baby is given names taken from the Roman Catholic calendar of saints. In regions like Corsica and Brittany, local names are used. And the immigrants are free to use names that represent their culture or religion.

With so many gorgeous French names, it could get tough to find the perfect name for your son or daughter. But MomJunction’s got it covered for you. Below is our collection of French baby names along with the meanings. Why wait? Pick the one which you think will suit your daughter or son best.
