France and fashion go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise that French boy names are always in demand. Whether they’re long and grand or short and spunky, French boy names are undeniably stylish and generally easily transfer between languages. With so many handsome monikers to choose from, let’s take a closer look at some fabulous French finds together.
France is a world-renowned travel destination whose names are as visibly French as the Eiffel Tower itself. Classics like Louis and Beauregard carry you to the rolling hills in a flash, while Jean-Paul and Dior capture the hearts of fashion lovers everywhere. Similarly, Philippe, Gaston, and Yves elicit images of the European nation.
Turning to a French variant of a name is a fun way to honor a loved one, with Andre our all-star twist on Andrew. Jacques is a handsome stand-in for Jacob and James, while Antoine is a regal cousin to Anthony. We also love Pierre, the French variant of Peter, that feels much more modern than his original form.
On that note, French boy names are bursting with picks that fit modern trends, like occupational picks Chandler, Taylor, Cannon, and Marquis. They’re also less common than Mason and Carter, winning over parents seeking a trendy name that isn’t in every classroom. There are also uber-cool finds like Cade and Case, who have the short, snappy bite that parents love about Jack and Jace. Dax is another hot pick, a name who has the same allure as Max and Jax without the top 100 popularity.
If you’re a lover of meanings like us, you’re in for a treat with French boy names. Beau is an obvious pick, meaning “handsome,” but many hidden treasures are waiting, like Bellamy, meaning “handsome friend” and Aure, meaning “soft breeze.” For positive vibes, see Rene’s “rebirth” or Destin’s “destiny.” Meanwhile, you have many bold picks available like Pruitt’s “brave little one” and Tempest’s “storm.”
Not all French boy names are obvious, however. Did you know the 1990s darling Travis has French roots? Meaning “to cross over,” he’s almost developed a classic Americana feel. His friend Curtis also hails from the country, and with a meaning like “well-mannered,” he’s a delight. Darrell and his buddy Derrell are equally French, as is the Hollywood heartthrob pick, Channing.
While some have appeared in the Top 100, French boy names aren’t always chart-toppers, making them ideal for parents seeking something uncommon. Baylen is an “auburn-haired” cutie that works well beside Hayden and Caleb in sound, though he’s quite rare stateside. Chasen and Astin are just as unique, and we love how close they mirror popular styles. You’ll find sports star favorites, Lebron and Elroy on the rare side, too.
As you can see, French boy names are more diverse and far-reaching than you’d think. They contain monikers for every parent’s name taste, with those perfect for a lively little boy like Remy and longer, elegant picks like Napoleon. Take a peek at these wonderful names and find your next amour.
