LOL. Well, Muhammed does appear frequently IRL, so there's that. Jesus however... Well, they *are* biblical, and some people will touch them and some won't. 

Yes, this site isn't always good at promoting & offering up info while lacking more impartiality. I get that including judgment(s) is valuable yet every name is subjective. Sometimes NameBerry seems to forget that.

Dietrich Says:


We have a Siegfried too! Hope you use it. He loves swords(Gram, Nothung, Balmung), dragons (Fafnir), and Rheingold!

Dietrich Says:


Muhammed and Jesus are OK, they are not German.

Volkmar Says:


We have a Siegfried. We are from America, but have German ethnicity. Classic German names are disappearing, even though they are so cool. German or not, names like Siegfried should never die out!

Siegwulf Says:


Siegfried is one of the coolest sounding names I can think of. Definitely a contender for a future baby, alongside the name Arthur.

bordercollie Says:


Siegfried Farnon :D

Wolfgang Says:


"One of the least user-friendly and most Germanic of the German names."

Wow! All the descriptions of the German names sound racist!

What is wrong with this site?

I hate to see what you guys write about Muhammad or Jesus...
