    Calling all French-berries: What's chic in France?

    As an avid forums reader/poster, I've gotten a pretty good idea of what's stylish in the US and the UK. I don't mean popular; I mean the fashionable, classy, not overused or dated names. I aspire to move to France at one point in time, so I wanted to ask the experts: What names are considered stylish, classic, etc. in France? As you can see from my signature, I'm totally in love with French names. Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Not too sure of what's the rage in France, but you and I share a love of two names-- Zoe and Noemí. A name twin!

    I'm not French, but behindthename.com has an excellent tool that lists the top names for different countries around the world. The most recent list for France I kind fine is from 2010

    This Meilleurs Prénoms is really helpful for name stats in France: http://www.meilleursprenoms.com/site...ue/EnVogue.htm
    ^ This page in particular are the "In Vogue" names, so it's in categories of top names by year and by decade, climbing names, most common names from birth announcements, stats from Belgium, Switzerland, and Québec.
