Oh La La! 30 Beautiful French Baby Names

Oscar-winning French actress Marion Cotillard and her director sweetheart, Guillaume Canet, welcomed a baby boy yesterday in the lovely city of Paris. Oh, how perfectly romantic, isn't it? What's extra special is the new bébé also gets a perfectly lovely French name. The lucky little fellow is named Marcel (melt, melt, melt ... ).

But you don't have to have your baby in Paris or be French to give your baby one of their lovely-sounding names. Oui, oui, your sweet baby, too, can have a nom français. We've rounded up 30 French baby names for both girls and boys to get you started thinking.

And don't worry, we didn't pick anything you can't pronounce. Most of these will roll right off your tongue, not matter how bad your American accent. Haha!

We have Elodie on our list of girl names we like! But I don't know if we'll end up using it.
