    I know two teenage Swiss people. The girl is named Fiona and the guy is named Sam. I'm not sure if there are actual Swiss-originating names, but you can look at the popular or traditional ones in Switzerland

    I don't think so, Ash. All the Swiss people I know have German, French, Italian and Russian names. Silvan, Julian, Fabian (lots of -an names!), Sasha, Anoushka...

    That's what I figured. I figured I might get inspiration from their most popular name lists, but I feel like a lot of those (Amelie, Leonie, Mia, Alina, Samuel, etc., etc.) are rather international, or one culture or another--and it doesn't feel Swiss to me. My dad said that we're from the Black Forest area, but isn't that Germany? I was just taking his word for it when he said we were Swiss, but I just googled it, and it doesn't look like the Black Forest area ventures into Switzerland at all. Does it? Maybe I need to see exact cities and such on the family tree program my dad has. I'm a bit confused now, haha.
