According to the Association for German Language (GfdS), the most popular baby names in Germany in 2010 were Maximilian and Sophie/Sofie:

Boy Names Girl Names

  4. Leon
  5. Lukas/Lucas
  6. Luca/Luka
  7. Elias

  3. Maria
  4. Sophia/Sofia
  5. Mia

(These rankings don’t account for all German births last year, but they do account for over 50% of them.)

The GfdS also offered examples of the unusual baby names parents wanted to bestow in 2010. Some were accepted by the government, others were rejected.

Accepted: Rejected:
Belana
Kantorka
Kix
Laperla
Lelibeth
Loana
Lovelle
Miransah
Monel
Napoleon
Noredien
Nox
Quidan
Segesta
Cheraldine
Gihanna
Idjen (rather than Etienne)
Junge (“boy”)
Laslo (for a girl)
Leuis
Menez
Partizan
Pfefferminza (pfefferminze is “peppermint”)
Puppe (“doll”)

Finally, my source claims German law “stat[es] that middle names, like nicknames, can be modified at will.” I wasn’t aware of this. Can anyone out there confirm/deny?
