French Lady Names

(From Genevieve and Camille to Ariane and Ghislaine.) Here are some French origin female names that I’d honestly use for my future girly!
  1. Ariane
    • Camille
      • Origin:

        French
      • Meaning:

        "young ceremonial attendant"
      • Description:

        At one time just the sound of the name Camille could start people coughing, recalling the tragic Lady of the Camellias, the heroine played by Greta Garbo in the vintage film based on a Dumas story, but that image has faded, replaced by a sleek, chic, highly attractive one.
    • Genevieve
      • Origin:

        English from French
      • Meaning:

        "tribe woman"
      • Description:

        Genevieve is derived from the Germanic medieval name Genovefa, or Kenowefa, which consists of the elements kuni, meaning "kin", and wefa, meaning "woman." The medieval saint Genevieve, patroness of Paris, defended the city against Attila the Hun through her rational thinking, courage and prayer.
    • Ghislaine
      • Origin:

        French from German
      • Meaning:

        "pledge"
      • Description:

        Ghislaine still sounds unusual to us, even though in France this name is dated. It can also be spelled Ghislain.
