German baby names

In Germany parents follow a strict rule for naming their Child. For obtaining the birth certificate of a German baby, his/ her name must be approved by the civil registration office (Standesamt). Germanic baby names consist of one or more first names (Vornamen) followed by a surname (Nachname).

German babies' first name i.e. the Vornaman is usually gender-specific and mostly are taken from Biblical names such as John, George, or Jacob; or from Germanic names such as Frederick or Louis. German babies have several first names, out of which one designated as their "call name" also known as Rufname which is usually underlined on official documents. The Germanic surnames are derived either from occupations, family, bodily feature or from geographical origin. A woman traditionally adopted her husband's name and would occasionally retain their maiden name by hyphenation, in a so-called Doppelname. But in recent times, a married couple is allowed to choose the surname they want to use.
