German Baby Names

By German baby names, we mean those that have their roots in German and Germanic languages, which is not necessarily the same as names popular in modern Germany. Popular baby names in Germany include many choices widely-used throughout Europe and the English-speaking world that may not necessarily be German, such as the Latinate Mia and Sofia or the Irish Finn. The German girls' name Emma is near the head of the list in Germany as well as many other countries, and names of German origin such as William or German spins on names from around the world also rank highly. If you're looking for German names for your baby girl or baby boy, here is our full list of possibilities.
