Children playing
Today´s post is about hyphenated names taken from the Austrian name statistics. This post will be about the names Mia and Max, which are very popular in German-speaking countries. Mia is currently the 17th most popular first name in Austria and the number one in Germany. Max, which is often seen as an abbreviation of Maximilian, is quite often used on it´s one. It is currently number 51 in Austria and number 17 in Germany. Although, Mia is so popular most people combine it with the two most common second names Sophie and Marie. Therefore, I have put together a selection of more uncommon and unusual names, which were hyphenated with Mia and Max in the past.

Leonie in Austria

The name Leonie was covered last week at Appellation Mountain and I was surprised, how it was described. It was depicted as an uncommon French classic, but I never really thought about it in that way. In Austria it is at the moment one of the most common female names for newborns.

Popularity

´

Leonie, which derives from the Latin word for lion ( lat. leo, leonis) is connected to the generation, which was born in the beginning of the 21 century in Austria and Germany. You can find a girl named so in every elementary school and playground. Since 1984 7587 girls received this name, here not included are spelling modifications like Leoni and Léonie and also not included are hyphenated names. In 2003 this first name was in the Top Ten of the most common names for the first time in Austria. Several years before, its popularity started. In 2000 it was on the 55th position, one year later it raised 21 places and the following year it was already on the 14th position. To demonstrate its popularity in recent years I have created the following chart.

Hyphenated Names

´

My last example with the name Anna showed that Austrian parents like to give hyphenated names to their children, especially to their daughters. I have often found names hyphenated with Leonie in the Austrian name statistics. Many parents tend to combine the popular and trendy Leonie to something more uncommon like Clio and Mercedes. But others just stick to the already over-popular name the most popular second names Sophie and Marie. Since 1984 49 girls received the name Leonie-Sophie and further 21, Leonie-Marie. The majority of these following names are only given to one person.

´

Leonie-Alexia

Leonie-Aurora

Leonie-Carolina

Leonie-Cecile

Leonie-Clio

Leonie-Constance

Leonie-Delphine

Leonie-Elisa

Leonie-Florentina

Leonie-Helen

Leonie-Jumana

Leonie-Lucia

Leonie-Madeleine

Hyphenated Names – Anna

´

Hyphenated names are quite popular in Austria. But most people don´t use their whole name in real live.   I know for example girls called Anna-Maria and Lisa-Marie, who only go by Anna and Lisa. Hyphenated names are mostly given to girls, but some parents choose them also for boys. I am acquainted with siblings called Lisa-Marie and Tim-Luca.

´

But there are also some parents, who use hyphenated names to combine popular  names like Anna and Lea with more unusual choices.  I have searched out some of these combinations on the Austrian first name statistics.

´

I will start today with Anna and some interesting combinations.
