French baby names - Info requested by our visitors 
In their search for a name for a newborn baby people become interested in researching their own surname or family and First Name. We have therefore included this information to meet the requests of our visitors.

French First Names

The Importance of French First Names!
We respond to our name throughout our lives. People associate us with our first name, it forms part of our identity. They help to distinguish us from one to another. Other people gain immediate and sometimes totally subconscious views of people, just from hearing a name they can therefore give us a distinct advantage in life, or conversely, a disadvantage! The choice of a French Baby name is, therefore, incredibly important. And those of us who choose a baby's name are taking on a responsible task! 

The Origins of French baby names 
The origins of this these include place names, those related to mythology and history, origins from colours, plants and other types of nature, Fictional origins, historical origins, characteristic and religious origins. We then move on to the genre which can be classed as Descriptive, Place, Speciality and finally unique (or created name's).  

Hyphenated French baby names
One of the most distinguishing features of the French baby name is the use of Hyphens. Examples of male hyphenated are Jean-Jaques or Paul-Henri. Examples of female hyphenated are Anne-Marie or Marie-Elise. The French also mix genders within hyphenated name's so that a name will consist of one male name and one boy name. The correct gender is indicated by the first part of the name such as Jean-Marie for a boy and Anne-Louis for a girl.

Masculine and Feminine versions of French baby names
Many French names have masculine and feminine versions of the same name. The female name is often indicated by an acute accent over the letter 'e' which looks like this: é. An example of this is with the male name Jean changed to a feminine version of Jeaneé. Another illustration of masculine and feminine versions of the same name is the use of the suffix 'ette'. An example of this is with the male name Henri changed to a feminine version of Henriette.

Questions about French baby names! 
At one time or another most of us have posed some the following questions about our own names...

  • Why did my parents choose the name?
  • Are there any strong family connections to my name?
  • Where did my name originate?
  • Why was I given such a popular name?
  • Why was I given such an unusual name?

What French baby name shall I give to my baby?
Will the traditional French baby name suit my baby? Will it be appropriate throughout a full life cycle starting with baby - toddler - school child - teenager - young adults - parents - middle age - retirement and ending with old age. Will it suit a pensioner as well as a baby? Will the schoolchild be teased mercilessly about a name? What will your baby think of your choice?
