French Baby Names

French Baby Names

Some of the most beautiful sounding names come from the French language. When I was younger, we would travel to Old Quebec and Montreal for my brother’s hockey tournaments in the summer. I would try practising my grade 8 French skills on the waiters and the baristas with little chance they actually could understand what I was saying. Nevertheless, you do not need to speak French to use a French name for your baby (thank goodness). Here are some of my favourite French names:
