A French Name A Day

@Carys1 has done A Welsh Name A Day thread so I thought I’d start a [name_m]French[/name_m] Name A Day.

I think [name_m]French[/name_m] names are so beautiful and elegant, and I’d love to come across some more! The meanings are also often beautiful :white_heart:

Today I’m loving [name_f]Alienor[/name_f]. Its meaning is unknown, but it’s very similar to [name_f]Eleonore[/name_f] and [name_f]Alyenor[/name_f]. It dates back to the Arthurian romances, but still in use today.

[name_f]May[/name_f] I suggest [name_f]Antoinette[/name_f]? [name_m]Classic[/name_m] as it is, put a “Marie” before it and suddenly it’s a great name with a not-so-great namesake. :eyes:
