People on Twitter made the same joke:
I keep reading Emmanuel Macron's name as "Macaron," which would actually be a better last name for a French president, let's be honest.— Jodi Westrick (@jodilyn) May 8, 2017
Do u think it's a coincidence that Macron is one letter away from macaron? I do not. pic.twitter.com/OWCO7Yutf2— Nayomi with a Y (@nayomir) May 7, 2017

People really wanted Macron macarons to be a thing:
I mean, every French bakery has to have a #macron macaron now, right?— Liz J (@LJuko) May 9, 2017
I sincerely hope Laduree introduces the Macron macaron.— barbara barna abel (@BarbaraBarna) May 9, 2017
People pointed out the interesting connection the new First Lady of France has to macarons:
Macron's wife, Brigitte Trogneux, is from a famous family of macaron (cookie) makers. Great history: https://t.co/ARcWBchNS7— Heidi N Moore (@moorehn) May 8, 2017
vous saviez que Brigitte Trogneux,femme de Macron,est de la famille de l'inventeur du macaron d'Amiens ?— NOLWEN (@Lolwen_) April 28, 2017
Macron-macaron, c'est rigolo non ? pic.twitter.com/enwBbWFnET
