Boy Names of French language or origin

French names for baby boys, with 3061 entries. The allure of all things French doesn’t just stop at its culture, lifestyle or language; French baby names too have that distinctive quality of effortless sophistication! For parents who want a name that is relatively exotic without resulting in too many raised eyebrows, French names are a perfect choice. In France, many Anglo names have risen to the top of the popularity ranks, although traditional Gallic names like Thierry and Yvette still retain their charm.

French names are all-time favorites. Currently they are still very popular baby names for boys, though they were in more widespread use previously. At the height of their usage in 1952, 33.304% of baby boys were given French names. There were 86 French names ranked within the top 1000 baby names then. French names have since experienced a decline in frequency, but are nonetheless used on a very heavy scale now. In 2018, 75 French names listed among the top 1000, with a combined usage of 11.453%. Within all French names, the English and French William was the most commonly used, with a ranking of #3 and a usage of 0.7526%.
