    Here are some suggestions. I apologize for any repeats. I tried to avoid any names that sound more like German old men and aren't too workable in the US:

    Andreas
    Anton
    Bastian
    Carsten
    Emil
    Hannes
    Hendrik
    Jens (one of my favourites, but has pronunciation issues)
    Karl
    Kurt
    Markus
    Martin
    Matthias
    Moritz
    Stefan
    Tobias
    Torsten

    By the way, you can find a list of the most popular baby names in Germany here.
    Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Veronica ~ Sarah ~ Esther
    Paul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

    Top combos: Miriam Estelle / Paul Augustin

    As a German I have been finding these threads that are in severe need of correction.

    Forgive me for violating an internet rule of responding to an old thread. However, it is not locked or archived. Also, I came across this by change on an internet search. So others may as well.

    I find this thread terribly offensive to my ethnicity. Nearly all names listed here are NOT German names at all!

    Some of my favorite GERMAN names are:

    Boys:

    Wilhelm
    Heinrich
    Siegfried
    Friedrich
    Wieland
    Roland
    Konrad
    Rüdiger
    Helmut
    Volkmar
    Günther
    Rudolf
    Dietrich
    Hermann
    Volker
    Wolfram
    Lothar
    Dieter
    Ulrich

    Girls:

    Wilhelmine
    Brünhilde
    Irmengard
    Irmingard
    Luitgard
    Himiltrude
    Reinhilde
    Schwanhilde

    Also:

    Ehrenfried

    Friedelinde
    Ludwige
    Reinhard
    Hildegard
    Austraberte
    Friederike

    Adelbrand
    Adelhelm
    Adelhard
    Sieglinde
    Hildeberte

    Meinhilde
    Adelhelma
    Wendeline
    Friedhild(e)
    Sieghild(e)
    Sieglind(e)
    Irmgard
    Ermengarde

    My Children:

    FRIEDRICH WILHELM LUDWIG ROLAND

    GÜNTHER HEINRICH HELMUT KONRAD

    SIEGFRIED KARL RUDOLF VOLKMAR

    DIETRICH WOLFGANG RÜDIGER HERMANN

    This is just a small list of German names that I have taken a liking to over the years. I have a multitude more as well. You may also make your own German names, as they are bipartite. Some would sound contemporary, some could be traditional. I have an exhaustive database of German names, their etymological meanings, historical origins, and bearers by historical, mythological, and religious, characters. German names are among the oldest in the world. Many being traced at least 3,000 into the past. If you are interested, please contact me. Good luck.

    -Heinrich

    Heinrich, I'm pretty sure the OP (who has undoubtedly named their child by now, so...) meant names that are useable both in Germany and in the United States. Not names that are completely Germanic in etymological origin. You suggested a whole lot of names there that are not the best for the United States (esp. Adolf! Are you kidding?), so even if it wasn't several years too late, it would hardly have been the most helpful contribution.
