I know that Pierre is a very stereotypical (and most probably outdated) Gallic name but I really love it! It’s my grandfather‘a name and it’s got me thinking. Would Pierre work as a first name for a boy who isn’t living in a French speaking country? I know it’s a stretch, but was just wanting to hear what your thoughts are on this. If Italian names like Matteo, Orlando and Leonardo are becoming increasingly acceptable for boys, then why not a French name like Pierre?
