Whether your family hails from France or you just love the lyrical and romantic sound of the French language, there's no doubt that French names can make adorable choices for baby girls. Not only do they sound elegant and feminine, but they have beautiful meanings reflecting the special qualities parents wish for their daughters. French girl names are often derived from the names of saints. However, French parents often create their own unique variations by hyphenating two of their favorites.


1. Noelle

This festive name is especially suitable for any little girl born in December. Meaning 'Christmas' in French, this name was often given to daughters born in the holiday season in the Middle Ages. There are several possible alternative spellings including Noel and Noell. The pretty and feminine-sounding Noella is a popular variation of the name Noelle.
