wow, that's a lot of new and unusual names. Was the list longer and you just included the more interesting ones?
Do you have to state your case for why you want a certain name? A lot of these seem really obscure for a country who works off a specific list. I would think there would be more "normal" names that or names from other cultures that people would want to use and can't. Names like Laban and Ludo that are names in other countries.
How long is the actual list?--total names available for use?Top Names: Benedict Calvin & Noelle Geneva
Olivia/Livy : Darah/Bethel : Eve/Verity
Eli/Solomon : Luke/Zane: Levi/Phineas

Christian is adorable, but not so little anymore. He has really grown lately.
Ludo means ... Ludo, as in the board game
But the whole point of the name "laws" or whatever it's called, is to avoid embarrassment for the child (which I think we can conclude is gonna happen with some of the names up there) and I think there would be some teasing if a Danish kid was named Ludo ("hey Ludo, tell Scrabble I said hello!").

I was surprised to see that we (I'm German) share some words like Sommer,Gift, Engel and Europa. First I thought the Danish naming laws must be even stricter than the German ones because at least here it's not that difficult to get a new name approved. If it is a name. Names that have meanings like "boy" or "poison" wouldn't get approved I'm pretty sure. Poor Offer. (the German word is Opfer, just the idea of it as a name is shocking)
