Updated: April 9th, 2024

France is a country of rich heritage and tradition. It is known for its food and wine, its culture and for its beautiful sights like the snow-capped mountains and the Riviera coast. France is also a popular tourist destination having profound influence on art, fashion, and literature.

French language is also considered as one of the most beautiful, romantic, and elegant languages in the world which provides the perfect inspiration for baby names. Traditionally, most French baby names are taken from the Roman Catholic calendar of saints. French people have one, two or more given names, among which one is used in daily life and the others are solely for official documents, such as passport, birth, death, and marriage certificates. French baby names are based on the prominent figures in art and science such as Claude and Louis or represent saints such as Claire and Dominque. The French baby names can be fashionable like Gabrielle and Leo or unique like Fleur and Fran├žois.
