Is your little one due to arrive in a few months but you’re lacking inspiration? Don’t worry! Each week, we put together a small selection of names for you: 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 names

Jean: Widespread since the Middle Ages, Jean is still the most used name in France today. From La Fontaine to Cocteau, through Jaurès, it evokes many inspiring personalities!

Coline: This charming name, derived from the classic Nicolas, has appealed to young parents for several years.

Modern names

Marlo: Coming from Anglo-Saxon countries, Marlo appeared in France about ten years ago. A real favourite!

Léane : Two soft and simple syllables for a pretty alternative to the classics Léa and Anne.

Retro names

Emile: Driven by the success of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s l’Émile, published in the year 1762, this name reaches peak popularity at the end of the 19th century.

Madeleine: The perfect example of a retro name and full of charm it evokes Proust’s famous Madeleine. 

Sophisticated names

Eloïs: We love the tones of this uncommon name, combining the classic Eloi with the softness of Loïs. 

Aure: A Christian martyr, Saint Aure was the first abbess of the Martial monastery in Paris in the 17th century. A melodious name that is far from ordinary.
