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!


Modern names.

Noé: short, simple and strong, this name with its biblical origins has been inspiring more and more parents over the last decade.

Ambre: a delicate name, sophisticated and sweet that evokes artistic and several therapeutics qualities.

Names from literature.

Arthur: with his knights at the round table, King Arthur has infiltrated our literature from the Middles Ages until today!  We have a crush on this strong name that’s full of character and has unusual tones.

Lou: muse to the poet Apollinaire, to whom his passionate letters were dedicated to. Lou (originating from Louise) was well known for her sensitivity, cheekiness and elegance.  Three qualities that are perfectly reflected in this short and original name!

Retro names.

Félix: from the Latin happy, charitable and fertile.  It’s a beautiful meaning for this bold and joyful name that is becoming more and more popular.

Adélaïde: distinguished and not very well known, Adélaïde is a name you won’t forget! Sweet, elegant and rare.

Those that take our breathe away…

Tilio: a Breton name meaning powerful, Tilio seduced us with its soft yet strong tones.

Violette: we love this melodic, sparkling, romantic name that’s full of life.


What’s been your inspiration this week?

    Apollinaire n’était pas qu’un poète, c’est aussi un prénom ! 😉
    (C’était son 5ème prénom d’ailleurs)
    En masculin Apollinaire ou son féminin Apolline, j’adore !
