From Coralie to Timothée, these baby names of French origin are perfect for Francophiles.

American parents seek baby name inspiration from many sources, like pop culture, politics, animals, foods and even outer space.

They also look beyond U.S. borders to see what names moms and dads in other countries are choosing for their newborns. That includes the land of romance: France.

Sweet French baby names include Coralie (a name that means “coral”) and Océane (which means ― you guessed it ― “ocean”) for girls, and Timothée (à la Hollywood darling Chalamet) and Étienne (meaning “crown”) for boys.
