Baby will be in good company with the French feminine name Lorraine. Meaning "from Lorraine," a province in northeast France, this name is shared with French royalty. Joan of Arc, who hailed from Lorraine, is also known as St. Joan of Lorraine, giving this name a healthy dose of history. Lorraine can also have German roots and comes from the Germanic name Lothar, which means "famous army," so baby can pull strength from their name as they go through life.
