I went through this list and found these fonts that would made sense if pronounced in French.
The most probable one is courier, in French an almost similar word courrier means mail or Symbol that means literally the same thing but written with e (symbole), there is also Trebuchet which is an homonym to trébucher meaning stumble in French.
Other fonts that could pass as French words are the noms propres like Georgia, Himalaya, Tahoma, …
Elite and Prestige Elite are similar fonts in that both relate to Pica (not a common French word, only used in typefaces and a medical problem in English) and look a bit like Courier. It would be Élite in French.
I also first thought Courier, Courier New, based on courrier in French.
Parisine, Trébuchet, Didot, Didone, Helvetica, Garamont. Anything with "sans" for sans serif.
I scanned this list from Wikipedia.
