(Because L-with-a-stroke and Z-with-an-overdot don’t render properly on my site, you’ll have to imagine they exist in several of the above: the girl names Lucja and Róza, and the boy names Mikolaj, Stanislaw, Michal, Milosz, and Pawel.)

Poland’s data goes all the way down to names with just two instances of usage, so here’s a sampling of the rare baby names at the opposite end of the spectrum:

Rare girl namesRare boy names
Aryna, Burla, Christine, Dziyana, Esti, Flavia, Goja, Hafsa, Iwanna, Jutrzenka, Kleopatra, Latika, Miszel, Nasturcja, Oryslava, Polianna, Raya, Svitlana, Tinatin, Ursula, Vienna, Wiera, Yevahelina, ZoryanaArseniusz, Bozydar, Czarek, Dachi, Ege, Ferdinand, Gabrielius, Hleb, Ioannis, Joszko, Kerem, Lotar, Maciek, Nicolai, Oktawiusz, Przemek, Reece, Szarbel, Tymek, Umut, Vitali, Wolfgang, Yanis, Zawisza

On the girls’ side: Jutrzenka means “dawn” in Polish, and Nasturcja is the Polish word for nasturtium (a type of flower).

On the boys’ side: Hleb (Belarusian) comes from Gleb (Russian), which comes from Guðleifr (Old Norse: “god” + “heir”), and Zawisza can be traced back to a Slavic word meaning “envy.”

Finally, here are Poland’s 2022 rankings, if you’d like to compare last year to the year before.

And what about the names at the other end of the spectrum?

Single-use names were given to nearly 8% of the baby girls and 7% of the baby boys born in Norway last year. We don’t have access to these unique names — the country doesn’t release names given to three or fewer babies per year (due to privacy concerns) — but here’s a selection of the names given to four babies:

Top baby names in Germany, 2022

Flag of Germany
Flag of Germany

The country of Germany is located in Central Europe and bordered by nine other countries (including Poland, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, and Denmark).

Last year, Germany welcomed roughly 739,000 babies.

What were the most popular names among these babies? We don’t know for sure, because Germany (like Japan) doesn’t release official baby name rankings. But two unofficial sets of rankings agree that Germany’s top baby names of 2022 were likely Emilia and Noah.

Here are the sources of the two sets of rankings:

  • The Society for the German Language (GfdS), which obtained data from more than 750 German registry offices. This data accounts for over 92% of all the first names bestowed in Germany in 2022.
  • Name researcher Knud Bielefeld, who obtained data from registry offices and maternity hospitals in 423 German cities. His data accounts for about 34% of all the babies born in Germany in 2022.

On both lists, differently spelled versions of the same name were combined.


Let’s start with the Society for the German Language (GfdS) list.

Bielefeld also noted that the boy name Nelio was on the rise thanks to German influencer Dagi Bee (birth name: Dagmar Ochmanczyk), who welcomed a son named Nelio in December of 2021.
