Drapeau des Franco-Américains. Représentant les personnalités américaines d'origine française.

Ceci est une liste de Franco-Américains célèbres ou réputés dans leur(s) domaine(s). Pour être inclus dans cette liste, ces personnes doivent avoir un article montrant qu'ils ont des origines françaises et la nationalité américaine.

Un Franco-Américain est un citoyen des États-Unis d'origine française. La majorité des familles franco-américaines ne sont pas directement arrivées de France, mais plutôt des anciennes colonies françaises du Nouveau Monde (du XVIIe au XVIIIe siècle) avant de partir plus tard aux États-Unis (voir la Déportation des Acadiens).

Près de 11,8 millions de résidents américains ont des ascendants français, et près de 1,5 million de ceux-ci parlent le français chez eux. Du fait de leur isolement, de leur mixage avec d'autres cultures, les Franco-Américains ont développé une culture particulière qui reflète plusieurs degrés d'adaptation à leur environnement. Ceci donna naissance aux Franco-Américains comme les Acadiens, les Cadiens, les Louisianiens et d'autres.
