🇩🇪 your favourite german names!

The title is self-explanatory! I feel like my list has very few German names and I’d love to expand it, so please throw your favourites at me!

I’m both interested in:
a) names of German origin
b) names from elsewhere, that are very established or currently trendy in Germany/German-speaking areas

I know the latter is a little more niche, but I just thought I’d mention that I’m open to these suggestions too, in case any German-speaking berries wanted to add something!

Thanks in advance for any responses :yellow_heart:
