One of the hardest decisions you'll ever make is trying to decide what to call your baby. If you're into the French aesthetic, you will love these elegant French names
France has always had a reputation for being elegant and chic. These days, though, our love of all things French is bordering on obsession. We're not totally deluded and know that the way we think about Frenchness has a sugar-coating of Disney, but, the stereotype is one to live by. And, I was in Paris lately and some of it is definitely true. 99% of Parisians are effortlessly cool and good-looking and their names match.
French style and beauty (as in, the way they think about beauty) is having a moment, but don't expect these names to be 'common' in a few years time. They should be reserved for a deserving bébé (eh, that's yours of course!). Expect your tiny Jeanne to become a stripe-wearing, wine-drinking, art-appreciating cool girl.
