Top Baby Names in France 2018
The top baby names in France for 2018 were Emma – also the Number 1 girls’ name in the US – and Gabriel.
Along with Emma, the top girl names in France last year included Jade, Louise, Alice, and Chloe.
Along with Gabriel, France counted Lucas, Adam, Arthur, and Hugo among its top boy names.
Like the US, France has taken to the trend of unisex names. Louise is a Top 5 name for both genders, and Léonie and Camille can be found on both the girls’ and the boys’ sides as well.
While many of the names in France’s Top 100 are French in origin, Arabic names such as Inaya and Imran are also strongly represented due to France’s comparatively large Muslim population.
Unique French names in the French Top 100 include Manon, Capucine, Zélie, and Maëlys for girls, and Maël, Gabin, Baptiste, and Maxence for boys.
