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!

Classic names

Isaac: A cheeky and lively name which, of course, belonged to one of the most well-known figures in scientific history, Isaac Newton.

Victoire: Determined, gentle and with great symbolism.

Retro names

Emile: Once very popular at the start of the 20th century, Emile is attracting more and more parents with its gentle, retro feel.

Quitterie: Although still relatively rare, Quitterie is a feminine and charismatic name.

Sophisticated names

Nikita: Of eastern European origin, Nikita is a charming and original name, suitable for a girl or a boy.

Sidoine: Bright, flowing and elegant.

Novel Names

Candide: or ‘The Optimist’. A name from one of Voltaire’s philosophical tales, Candide is the story’s main character. A good, honest and curious man, the story takes him on adventures all over the world to help him to really understand life. A rich and original name, which certainly makes an impact!   

Chloé: Chloé is a character in Boris Vian’s L’Ecume des Jours, seen through the eyes of Colin, the main character, as a symbol of gentleness and femininity. The name also comes from a jazz piece by Duke Ellington, making this a timeless choice that you won’t be able to resist!
