OOH, LA LA (French Word Names)

Boheme. Ciel. Rouge.

What do these names have in common?  They are all French words that have been used as first  or middle names.    Apparently, Prune (French for Plum) is being used over in France, but that one wouldn’t work over here for obvious reasons.

I’ll admit it.  I love these.  Paris is one of my favorite cities and I have a love for all things French, which is why I named our site Name Soiree Girls Gone Child’s twins recently added to this list with the birth of twin daughters Boheme Shalom & Reverie Lux.  Model Niki Taylor has a daughter named Ciel Taylor.   Child actress (now all grown up) has the unusual appellation of Soleil Moon Frye.
