Is your little one about to arrive and you’re lacking inspiration? Don’t worry! Each week, we put together a little selection of names: classic, retro, sophisticated, imaginative, timeless… there’s one for every taste. We’ve been inspired by our friends, our ‘it moms’, our families: here they are, exclusively for you!
Andrea: A beautiful name with Italian influences, lilting and mysterious.
Coline: A classic that you don’t hear very often, gentle and bubbly.
Honoré: Elegant, assured and dreamy.
Rosalie: A very retro name, fresh and feminine.
Pamphile: Pamphile is one of those sweet names that make you smile, and parents often feel drawn to this name.
Mahaut: Sweetness and mischief for a name that is still quite rare.
Aurélien: Aragon immortalised the name in his eponymous novel, famous for its opening line: ‘The first time that Aurélien saw Bérénice, he found her extremely ugly.’
Marianne: Cléante’s lover in Molière’s l’Avare (The Miser), Marianne is pretty, light and an easy choice for a child’s name.
