Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
I used to speak a very very little French when I was at university 10 years ago. Haven't been keeping up with it since.
Recently I was asked by my father to think of a name for one of his company. He fancies 'Sun River' in French. I felt bad that I could not help him. I was thinking would it be: 'La Rivere du Soleil'? But I know there are two words for 'river' in French. I am lost.
Be careful you forget to put a "i" between the "v" and the "è"
La Rivière du Soleil
The french translation for river is "rivière" when it's a small river and "fleuve" when it's a big one like the Tamise
But your translation is ok
The difference between fleuve and rivière is the following :
Un fleuve se jette dans la mer ou l'océan.
Une rivière se jette dans un autre cours d'eau.
