Two weeks (and two million croissants) later, I’m back in the States…with photos!
I’ll be posting them in batches over the next few days. This first batch consists of names I spotted in various commercial settings. (Names for sale, if you will.)
These zipper charms (called “Les Zippers”) were in a shop close to Notre-Dame in Paris:
Traditional names like Jean and Marie were also represented, but I found the trendy names a bit more interesting. (Photos for Corentin, Noémie, Océane, Ophélie, Tiphaine and Yanis ended up being too fuzzy to post.)
These name “cards” (not sure exactly what their purpose is) were in a shop in Monaco:
If Ségolène looks familiar, it’s likely thanks to former French presidential contender Ségolène Royal.
Finally, I found some street signs featuring given names (e.g. Bruno Boulevard) at a rest stop in Italy, but didn’t have the camera or a pen with me at the time. The only name I can recall now is Tiziano.
