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

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.

Retro names

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.

Sophisticated names

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.
