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!
Gaëtan: Common in Italy in the form Gaëtano, Gaëtan is a romantic name. It had a wave of popularity in France in the 1990s but is now rarely heard in school playgrounds.
Alix: Saint Alix founded in 1597 the congregation of Notre Dame, dedicated to the free education of young girls. Short and cheerful, this name charms more and more young parents.
Paulin: The charming alternative to the classic name Paul, this retro name is little known. A real favourite!
Rose: Very popular at the start of the 20th century, this delicate and feminine name is back in force today, both in France and in Anglophone countries.
Helios: In mythology Hélios is the god of the sun. A rare and bright name for a little boy!
Amicie: This ancient, rare and elegant name means “that who is loved”. It appeared in the civil registry at the beginning of the 20th century.
Names from around the world
Saul: The first king of Israel. Saül is very popular in Spain.
Nerea: Of Basque origin, Nerea is a charming name full of poetry.
