Top Baby Names in France 2019
The top baby names in France for 2019 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 Lina.
Along with Gabriel, France counted Léo, Raphaël, Arthur, and Louis among its top boy names.
Like the US, France has certain sounds that are fashionable for both boys and girls. There are several male/female counterparts in the Top 100, such as Louis and Louise, Léo and Léa, Clément and Clément, and Camille for both.
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.
