Marie Laforêt is a French singer and actress, (born Maïténa Marie Brigitte Doumenach, on 5 October 1939, in Soulac-sur-Mer, Gironde). In 1978 she moved to Geneva, Switzerland and took out Swiss nationality.
Her first name Maïtena, which is of Basque origin, means "beloved", and is sometimes used by the inhabitants of Languedoc, especially of Pyrénées and also resembles the diminutive of the name Marie-Thérèse, "Maïthé". Doumenach, her last name, is Catalan in origin – Domènec in Catalan. Her birth name Maïtena Marie Brigitte Doumenach, and her repertoire which included pieces inspired from the world folklore, have led to speculation of an Armenian origin of her parents. The singer herself used to define herself sometimes as "ariégeoise", i.e. from the region of Ariège in the south of France.
