German Word Names

´

I always liked English word names like Remember and Sunday. I searched for such names also in German, but I have found only a few. Therefore I collected German word, that also could be a first name. In addition to my own ideas, some members of the internet platform http://vornamen-forum.de/ helped me a lot.

´

Some of these names might be extreme suggestions as first names, but in the middle spot they are perfectly suitable. There are already enough girls with the middle names Marie and Sophie in Austria and Germany. The word names provide a nice alternative. I think, that most of these names are unisex.

On the left side is the German word on the right the English translation.
