Paris City Hall wants to name a small plaza after Diana, Princess of Wales at the site of the car crash that killed the British royal.
The site already holds a golden flame-shaped monument in her honour, adjacent to the Alma Tunnel where the accident occurred on August 31, 1997.
The plaza is currently named after opera singer Maria Callas.
A city hall official said the city council will vote next month on a measure to rename it after Diana.
The city noted that Callas already has a nearby avenue named after her and that the city wants to honour Diana for her humanitarian work.
The 36-year-old princess, her boyfriend Dodi al-Fayed and driver Henri Paul died after their Mercedes crashed into a concrete pillar in the tunnel.
The mother of Princes William and Harry, she was famed for her advocacy of charitable causes, including work to tackle HIV and Aids.
