En Wikipedia source:
Since 1885, four bells located in the north belfry have made up the Notre-Dame carillon:

Marie-Joseph, a 1500 kg bumblebee - baptized in 1848 with Aimé Bonnet as godfather and Mme Moricet as godmother - who gives C sharp;
Agathe, weighing 1,200 kg - baptized in 1847 with Bernard Vallée as godfather and Mlle Agathe Bonnet as godmother - who gives the D sharp;
Magdeleine, 750 kg, melted in 1837, sounds the Angelus in mi;
Henriette, melted in 1837, gives the G sharp.

These four bells give the notes corresponding to those of the third octave of the piano.

Marie-Joseph, un bourdon de 1 500 kg — baptisé en 1848 avec pour parrain Aimé Bonnet et pour marraine Mme Moricet — qui donne le do dièse ;
Agathe, d'un poids de 1 200 kg — baptisée en 1847 avec pour parrain Bernard Vallée et pour marraine Mlle Agathe Bonnet — qui donne le ré dièse ;
Magdeleine, de 750 kg, fondue en 1837, sonne l'Angélus en mi ;
