Comments for the name Alain


Comments for ALAIN:

My uncle is French but was from an Algerian colonist family. His name is Alain, and it seems to come from al'ain, "the eye". The Arabic influence is quite remarkable in the French language, more than the Celtic that is to say.

Anglophones sometimes incorrectly pronounce this name as if it rhymes with the female name Elaine. This is wrong. It is said like ah-LAYN with a nasal y sound in the last syllable.

I love this name. I know it because of Alain Delon. I'd use it as a first name, but I will probably use it as a middle name for any future children of mine. I'm from the U.S., so imagine what hell my kid would get. I have no problem with the pronunciation even without speaking French. Anyway, I think Alain is very masculine and strong.

The name Alain is pretty dated in France. It was really only popular in the 50's and 60's.
