Rare names of Berlin 2020

The complete name data for the babies of [name_u]Berlin[/name_u] 2020 was released yesterday. They publish every single name and middle name by district (not collated for the city), so I still need to check it over to confirm the top names.

Nonetheless, as a taster, here are some of the names given to a handful of babies that I spotted whilst reading through the data… some beautiful, some less so, but I’ll leave that up to you guys to decide which :rofl:

Some of these make me cringe. I suppose I don’t have to sum up which ones :no_mouth: Okay, maybe I will say this: Peculiar, really? :neutral_face: Lamborghini? How are these even allowed? I always imagined [name_m]German[/name_m] naming laws to be a bit more strict than this.

I do love these:

Lucretius
[name_m]Thaddaeus[/name_m]
[name_m]Aeneas[/name_m] :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
[name_f]Katinka[/name_f]
[name_f]Amadea[/name_f]
[name_m]Baptiste[/name_m]
Elisandre
Petruschka
Adamanthe
[name_f]Medea[/name_f]
[name_m]Tiberius[/name_m]

@katinka @ethelmary There was a reason I noticed that name :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:. There were a couple of baby Katinkas!

They have gone lax the last couple of years. I had [name_u]Winter[/name_u] questioned in 2009! Fortunately I didn’t have to go to court to insist.

Some gorgeous ones here, as well as some… ahem, original choices.

No prizes for guessing my fave :innocent:

Being too strict is a bit ridiculous (although in Iceland you have to chose from a not-so-long list and I don’t think I’d mind it that much), but surely naming your child something like Lamborghini shouldn’t be allowed. I’m all for uncommon names when they have a history etc, but this is just… I won’t say child abuse, but seriously? Anyway, I’ll calm down now :sweat_smile:

I completely agree. I also feel sorry for poor baby Peculiar. The level of [name_f]English[/name_f] of most Berliners is pretty high, so they are likely to know what that word means!

Success!!!

I actually don’t think Lamborghini is a terrible name! Lambo is a cool nn.
