Germany's top names 2021

Thank you for sharing this.

I’m surprised [name_u]Maria[/name_u] and [name_f]Paula[/name_f] are so popular, I don’t see them a lot around me. The youngest [name_u]Maria[/name_u] I know is 12 years old.
Definitely not surprised by [name_m]Matteo[/name_m], there are little Matteo’s everywhere :joy:

It’s interesting how diffrent that is I haven’t met a [name_m]Matteo[/name_m] so far, only a little [name_f]Mattea[/name_f] but I know 3 Paulas who are under 5 :joy:

I was pretty sure [name_m]Matteo[/name_m] would top the list, it’s just so popular in Europe at the moment. [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] has been having a moment for a few years now but I didn’t think it was going to be this popular; however, when looking at the rest of the list, it makes a lot of sense; lots of vowel heavy names with Ls and Ms somewhere in the mix.

Thanks for sharing! I love seeing which names overlap between lists and which decidedly don’t :joy:

I could easily name children from these lists!
