Éric Zemmour (born August 31, 1958) is a French writer and political journalist.

His antiliberal and radical positions, as well as the numerous controversies he has been involved in, are notorious in France. In 2014 with the publication of his book The French Suicide he gained popularity outside of France.

French given names

"... les noms en usage dans les différents calendriers, et ceux des personnages connus dans l'histoire ancienne pourront seuls être reçus, comme prénoms, sur les registres de l’état civil destinés à constater la naissance des enfants; et il est interdit aux officiers publics d'en admettre aucun autre dans leurs actes.” --Loi du 11 germinal an XI:

One of Zemmour's wishes is that people in France choose a French given name, chosen from the calendar of saints. Regarding this, on September 18, 2018 Zemmour created a new controversy by insulting the name of the columnist Hapsatou Sy in the program "Les terriens du dimanche". His words "it's your name that is an insult to France" were cut at the editing of the show but rebroadcast by the young woman. She decided to file a complaint against Zemmour.
