    "I'd like a German name to honour my German heritage."

    What about Maria, Anna or Elisabeth? Those are very classic names in Germany.

    Or how about Mia, Leonie or Emilia? They were all within Germany's top 10 last year.

    "Don't be ridiculous, those names aren't nearly stereotypical or antiquated enough. I'm looking for a name than evokes a stereotypical view of Germanness, not a name that any actual German person has used for sixty years."

    @Lumen - Hahaha, yes, you must use Waltraud, Adelheid, Sieglinde, or Edeltraut to be authentically German.

    (I actually knew an Edeltraut when I lived in Germany. She was born before WWII....)

    Yes, those are exactly what I'm looking for. Gertrud and Ingeborg too. Perfection.
