Lacking inspiration with your little one due to arrive in a few months? Don’t worry! Each week, we put together a small selection of baby names: classic, retro, sophisticated, imaginative, timeless… there’s one for every taste.  We’ve been inspired by our friends, our ‘it moms’, our families and especially by you: here is your exclusive list!

Classic baby names.

Serge: This pretty name reached the height of its popularity in the 50s, undoubtedly due to the fame of Serge Gainsbourg, whose passionate love affair with Jane Birkin defined a generation.

Jeanne: This iconic French name was popularised by Jeanne d’Arc in the fifteenth century. We love how soft and feminine it sounds.

Biblical baby names.

Elijah: An Old Testament prophet, Elijah is a symbolic figure in the Bible. Dating from the beginning of time, this name exudes kindness.

Sarah: From the Hebrew ‘Saray’, meaning princess, this name has been in fashion since the beginning of the twentieth century. It’s the thirteenth most popular name for baby girls.

Old-fashioned baby names.

Mayeul: A soft and cheerful name, Mayeul, which means ‘May’ in Latin, is celebrated on 11 May.

Eudoxie: This unusual and individual name brings to mind classical antiquity, but will nonetheless blend in well in the school playground.

Baby names from around the world.

Rudolf: Like the French version Rodolphe, this name comes to us straight from Germany. Rudolf is dreamy, loyal and creative.

Magda: Sweet and melodic, this name originated in Portugal but has crossed continents to capture the imagination of lots of young Dutch parents.
