Name reg ex - allow extended characters but not numbers

i need to have a reg ex that will allow for french characters, i have been using this

var regExName = /^[a-z\u0000-\u10FFFF]+([\s\.\-\']?[a-z\u0000-\u10FFFF]+)?$/i

but on testing it allows numeric values, i must accept only alpha, this is for JavaScript  on client side validation, i will probably be applying it to server side in CF

the following is a test name that it should accept

john pol-jons st.onge o'reilly (double names with spaces, double names with hyphen, names with a period ., and names with an apostrophe) which currently all work, just need to get rid of the accepting numbers, i could just add a second check i guess and that what i will be doing  just hope this reg ex can be change to meet the no numerics requirement

TIA
