German baby names & meanings

German is the main language in Austria (90 percent), Germany (95 percent) and Switzerland (65 percent). It is also the main language in Luxemborg and Liechtenstein. It is also a popular second language in many European countries.

German speakers are probably most famous worldwide for their composers: Johann Sebastian Bach, Johannes Brahms, Georg Händel, Joseph Haydn, Gustav Mahler, Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

In sports famous Germans are Steffi Graf, Boris Becker; in entertainment: Marlene Dietrich, Heidi Klum, Claudia Schiffer. In literature, the Brothers Grimm (Jakob & Wilhelm) & Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Infamous Nazis are Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Göring. Germans who are well known in automotive field: Karl Benz, Rudolf Diesel, Ferry Porsche.

Close to a quarter of Americans have some German roots, so it is not surprising that Germanic names are popular in the United States. Two of the most popular names in recent counts, Emma and Emily are German in origin. For boys, William, which comes from the German Wilhelm is a perennial entry in the top ten list. Of course, German names when used in America typically conform to the English alphabet, so vowels with and umlaut (e.g., Äther) and the German ß (eszett) character are not used. Well, typically not, except like Blue Öyster Cult, Motörhead, Mötley Crüe and Queensrÿche, like if you were to name your little shorty after these bands, then like totally dude, you can use the umlaut, even though it's really like more of a diaeresis than as an umlaut, and those names don't really have anything to do with German, but like I'm spreading the word where I can, okay? well, peace out, düde.

And after that brief digression... A German name is made up from a forename (Vornamen) and a family name (Nachname). The forename is gender specific, so there are few unisex German first names. In a recent census, the top ten boys names in Germany were Maximilian, Alexander, Paul, Leon, Lukas, Luca, Felix, Johas, Tim and David. For girls the names were Marie, Sophie, Maria, Anna, Leonie, Leah, Laura, Lena, Katharina and Johanna. Like other cultures, sports figures, movie stars, tradition and name popularity contribute to the name chosen. In addition the Standesamt (office of vital statistics) must approve of the name.
