French girl names

Updated: April 10th, 2024

The French culture is one of the oldest and most elegant in the world. Of particular note is their flair for names, both for boys and girls. French baby-naming customs have a certain charm that is distinct from other countries, with names that often carry meaningful etymologies, beautiful sounds, and exotic pronunciations. In addition to being beautiful and unique, many French girls names are steeped in history and have been used for centuries, passed down from generation to generation.
