Choosing the perfect girl’s name for your baby girl is a fun experience, but it can be stressful too.

After all, it will be her name FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE!

However, if you have French ancestry in your family tree, maybe the perfect female name is one that reflects your French heritage.Even if you don’t have French ancestry, French is a beautiful language, and so are French names.

330 beautiful French girl names & meanings: rare, chic, popular, old (1)

So how do you pick the perfect French girl name?

It depends because beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Some parents prefer trendy or popular baby names. Others prefer traditional, unique or unusual names that hold particular meanings.

Rather than organizing this list of French girl names based on what I think are the most beautiful or prettiest, I combed through the registrar of French Female names given to little girls in France and organized them into the following categories.

How this list of French girl names is organized.

330 beautiful French girl names & meanings: rare, chic, popular, old (2)

  1. Popular French female names by year and decade: 2020, 2021, 1800’s to 1900, the 1920s, 1950’s and 1980s.
  2. Traditional and Classic French names for women. These have been around for a long time.
  3. Rare French girl names. These might be new or old French female names.
  4. Disappearing French girl names in France.
  5. Compound baby girl names such as Marie-Antoinette.
  6. Gender-neutral French names (can be given to both males and females)
  7. Famous French female actress names. Sometimes names will spike in popularity based on the popularity of a famous French actress.
  8. French goddess namesand meanings: these are Frenchified mythological names.

*There may be some overlap: Certain French girl names show up in multiple categories. For instance, the name Marie has been popular for multiple decades so it may show up in vintage names and popular names.

FYI: French girl names tend to be more traditional or classical.

330 beautiful French girl names & meanings: rare, chic, popular, old (3)

For anyone looking for unusual, weird, made-up or unique female names like “Moonraker” or “Stormi,” you’re going to be a little disappointed. French girl names and French boy names in France tend to be more classic or traditional. And there is a reason for that.

The government in France can control what parents in France name their children and force parents to rename their children with a more acceptable one.



It might sound strange, as It did to my husband, but many countries, not just France, have baby-naming laws that prevent parents from legally giving their children certain names like strawberry.

Baby naming laws are usually put in place to protect children from being given a name that’s offensive or embarrassing, like Adolph Hitler, which is banned in Germany and many other countries.

But some countries, like France, have taken baby-naming regulations a step further, and some French families think it may even be racist in some cases. Like when families in the region of Brittany in northwest France were forbidden from giving their children Breton (Celtic) names.

Baby naming traditions: a brief overview

From 1803 to 1966, parents in France could only give their children a saint’s name from the Roman Catholic calendar of saints or a historical person.

It created a long-standing baby-naming tradition which explains why there are so many people with names like Jean-Paul, Marie, Pierre and Louis.

330 beautiful French girl names & meanings: rare, chic, popular, old (4)

French baby naming rules and regulations have relaxed quite a bit since 1966, and French parents are giving their French babies names that never existed in France before.

For instance, the name Jade has been in the top 10 list of most popular French female names given to girls in France for years, but the name is fairly new. It didn’t appear in France until the early 1970s. There are also more and more names that are foreign or not of French origin now.

Now that you know a little history about baby-naming traditions in France, let’s get to the French girl name list and how it’s organized.

The list of French names for girls starts here.

Get out your notebook!

Here’s what I suggest. First, go through this list of French female names and write down the french names for girls that stand out to you. Then revisit your top choices, and discuss them with your friends, family or partner.

Weren’t the 80’s fun? François Mitterrand was the president of France during the ’80s (from 1981 to 1995). It was the first time since 1958 that the socialist party was in power. The large glass pyramid in front of the Louvre was completed in 1988, and New Wave was arriving in Paris with bands like Les Rita Mitsouko. I still llove that band.

In the 1950s, France was still very much the France of the cliché. It was pre-American culture, pre-television, and pre-globalization. Women could now vote thanks to a law that was enacted in 1944. France still had strict baby-naming laws, so parents had to choose traditional French names based on the Roman Catholic calendar. You won’t see the name Jade on this list.

70 Old and vintage French female names (1800 to 1900)

330 beautiful French girl names & meanings: rare, chic, popular, old (10)

Although these old and rare French girl’s names from the 1800s might not make it to the top of French baby name lists anymore, they were extremely popular during this period that included the Belle Epoque (1871 – 1914.), which overlaps with the Victorian era (1837-1901) and the Gilded Age in the United States (1870s)

Like fashion, popularbaby names in France come and go, and sometimes names come back into fashion. For instance, both Léa and Louise were extremely popular French women’s names in 1902, but declined in popularity for a few decades, then made a comeback in the 2000s.

Old Vintage French female names are a good choice for parents who want a more traditional or classic French name but also for anyone who wants to steer clear of common French female names like Louise or Jade.

Compound French girl names

330 beautiful French girl names & meanings: rare, chic, popular, old (13)

Sometimes French names are “Compound names” (prénom composé) which are a set of two or more first names used together, usually separated by a hyphen but not always.

Compound names are one single name and not a first and middle name.

For instance, if you met a French person with the compound name Anne-Laure or Anne Laure, you would call her Anne-Laure, not Anne, and not Laure, unless she asked you to call her by a single name.

Compound girl names can contain a male name.

Compound French names are usually composed of two names of the same gender but can also be composed of a male and female name.

If a compound name has both a male and female French name, the first part of the name dictates whether the name is for a man or a woman.

I know it might sound strange to some people that a girl’s name can contain a male, but not if you’re a French person.

For example:

  • Marie-Paul and Marie-Joseph are both French female names.
  • Paul Marie and Joseph Marie are both French male names.

Paul Marie (born in 1995) is a French professional footballer for MLS club San Jose Earthquakes.

Now, on to the list of compound French girl names.

  1. Ange-Marie (Ange can be a boy’s name or a girl’s name in French.)
  2. Anne-Claire
  3. Anne-Françoise
  4. Anne-Lise
