French-inspired baby names you'll want to steal

The early history of the United States can be best understood through its relationship to France. The country’s first ally also followed the States into liberal democratic uprising. A French general was the key to victory against the British. A French architect planned much of the layout of Washington. The French gave the United States the Statue of Liberty, the Central United States, and Serge Gainsbourg. They’re responsible for New Orleans, the country’s most interesting, odd, wonderful city.

Save for the strange, politically-fueled stretch in the early 2000s—when Americans were supposed to say Freedom Fries, Freedom Toast, Freedom Kisses, and Freedom Horns—Americans valorize the French for their style and good taste. So, if you’re going to take their lead when it comes to manicures, fashion, dieting, and government for the people by the people, it seems only natural to follow their lead on wonderful baby names as well.

Using data from National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies, The Stacker identified the 50 most popular boys and girls names in France in 2015.
