Top German Baby Names

Naming your baby is a very special process and finding a name that you fall in love with is a magical moment. However not only should you choose a name you love, but also a name that you can picture your child being proud of. In many countries a baby's name is considered their first gift, so be sure to make it a good one..

Originating from the cultural roots of Old Germania, German baby names tend to have strong consonants such as Kurt, Gretel and Otto. It is for this reason a German name can be the perfect accompaniment to a bold and charismatic baby. Interestingly many German baby boy names have very masculine meanings linked with battle and leadership, while German baby girl names tend to be linked with character traits, such as wisdom and leadership.

The West-Germanic language shares similar roots to English and Dutch, so many names may appear very similar in length and style, although being actually different.

For other European names, check out our Italian baby names and our French baby names.
