Norman, sometimes designated as Norman-French, is a Romance language and is classified as one of the Oil languages, along with Picard and Walloon. Norman is spoken in mainland Normandy, a region in northern France, and has no official status but is still classified as a regional language. Norman is taught in a few colleges near Cherbourg in France. Today, the Norman language is strongest in the less accessible areas of the former Duchy of Normandy: the Channel Islands and Cotentin Peninsula. Norman baby names will resemble French baby names to a certain extent as French has influenced the language a great deal.
