What does enchanté mean?


"Enchanté(e)" is the most common way to say "Nice to meet you" in French. It's the short version of "Enchanté(e) de vous rencontrer".

How to use

You can use it the same way you would use "Nice to meet you" English.

But, if you are a man, it's "Enchanté" and if you are a woman, it's "Enchantée" with an extra -e. (Don't worry, the pronunciation is the same)

Also, if the context requires you to be formal, you can use instead: "Ravi(e) de vous rencontrer" or any of the formal synonyms below.
