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:
Jens (one of my favourites, but has pronunciation issues)

Basically my entire signature works in German and English. (I'm German-American so that's really important to me).
With Josef I particularly like:

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:
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, 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.Freyja Elísabet - June 2015
