    Very jealous of you ottilie! I've always wanted to visit Denmark. And one of the reasons I like the name Christian is because it reminds me of little Prince Christian who is so cute

    As for the names, I love Ludo. I'm surprised it wasn't already an accepted name, unless it has a meaning in Danish?

    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?

    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!").

    Indeed, though he has an unfortunate habit of taking on ... ahem, less flattering roles

    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)
