Long list of NRC birth announcements

Birth announcements in the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad from the past few months.

They can be seen as the Dutch equivelant of Telegraph baby names (quite posh).

If you have any questions about pronunciation/gender/origin, feel free to ask!

THANK YOU so much for sharing! This is where real understanding of names and trends comes from and where you find the gems. I remember the days of painstakingly combing through journals from libraries and ordering name dictionaries from other countries to ascertain an understanding of names internationally.

Also, as I have known always and confirmed often, I was born on the wrong side of the pond :star_struck:

[name_m]Ciro[/name_m] [name_m]Marinus[/name_m] with [name_m]Dante[/name_m] and [name_m]Serge[/name_m], love, love! [name_f]Fan[/name_f] of [name_m]Rutger[/name_m]. First I’ve seen of [name_m]Floris[/name_m] (x2) in actual use.
[name_m]Johannes[/name_m], a personal fave
[name_m]Magnus[/name_m] & [name_f]Leonora[/name_f], ahh
[name_f]Aurelie[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] Greetje, mmm
[name_f]Bettina[/name_f] [name_f]Verena[/name_f] [name_f]Dora[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] AND WITH Ottony, eye candy
[name_f]Colette[/name_f] [name_f]Saskia[/name_f], two on my top 50
[name_f]Elodie[/name_f] and her 5 perfect names
[name_m]Fiore[/name_m] [name_f]Johanna[/name_f] is perfection, also both on my 50.
[name_f]Antonia[/name_f] & [name_f]Florentine[/name_f], also on my 50. [name_f]Love[/name_f] them with the fn [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] here

The simplicity of [name_f]Kate[/name_f] [name_f]Milou[/name_f] (also on my 50) [name_f]Vera[/name_f]
[name_f]Zara[/name_f] and Elif’s whole names and with brother [name_m]Balthazar[/name_m]

Pure dessert here!

Out of curiosity, do you know where the nickname Fiep is coming from?

Thank you for sharing!

Interesting to see [name_m]Boris[/name_m] used a few times. I didn’t necessarily expect it to be popular with NRC parents. It’s a great name though and I it works nicely both with siblings [name_f]Bella[/name_f] and [name_f]Kiki[/name_f] and siblings [name_f]Margot[/name_f] and Cathelijne.

[name_f]Lovely[/name_f] names!

I love this name.

Interesting, I hadn’t heard Ids before.

This is my favourite name from the list. [name_m]Eise[/name_m] [name_m]Lukas[/name_m] has been one of my own favourite combos for a while. I also like [name_f]Fenna[/name_f].

[name_f]Anabelle[/name_f] is a surprising choice after siblings [name_m]Teddy[/name_m], [name_m]Bobby[/name_m] and [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] but it’s a beautiful name.

So elaborate! I really like Fredelinde.
