Long boy names

Long boy names

The longest boy’s name registered in Germany was given in 1904. Between the first name “Adolph” and the last first name “Zeus” there are another 24 first names that none of his acquaintances could remember, let alone wanted to pronounce completely. After a mother wanted to give her son 12 first names in 2004, it was determined that the choice of first names must now be limited by law to five.

However, if you like long names, you don’t always have to resort to second, third or fourth names. There are many beautiful polysyllabic boy names that, unlike name additions, are also pronounced completely. Long first names go particularly well with short surnames. However, expect your son’s entourage to shorten his name to a nickname sooner or later so that it is easier to pronounce and sounds less serious.

The following boy names have at least three or more syllables . They can also be optically extended by using a slightly different spelling. For example, “Leonard” could become “Leonhardt” or “Fridolin” could become “Friedolien”.

  1. Sebastian
  2. Maximilian
  3. Jonathan
  4. Matthias

Nordic boy names

There were already some established Nordic names in Germany in the 1970s. They come mainly from Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark and have their origins in old North Germanic languages. Faroese, Icelandic, Norwegian , Swedish, and Danish produced some of the names that are popular in Germany today.

Their high popularity could be due to the fact that the Nordic languages ​​are distantly related to German . Both come from ancient Germanic languages ​​that have diverged over time. The well-known sound of Nordic could be one reason why native German speakers perceive it as well-tried and traditional. However, since they differ from classic German names, they appear even more lively and special.
