These are mostly really uncommon names in Germany but I guess it proves that naming kids can still be very creative in Germany despite the legal restrictions.

Most of these names are not very "typical" German and I think the majority of them are Scandinavian, so this is why they sound like furniture from IKEA. The name Gundel I have only read in "Disneys lustige Taschenbücher", where there is a witch called Gundel Gaukeley. You don't name your children after comic characters, do you? :-)

I got most of them right. The trend i hate most now is the names that start with Dj like Djoy Djeslynn etc. Its mostly used by families from deprived neighbourhoods. In most streets all children have the same names. Saw 2 boys born in one street and both being called Djaivy on the welcoming plates in the garden. Please stop this! You dont want your kid to be discriminated just by their parents poor name choice.

Eike is a name for both, male and female. And yes, I know that for a rather short time now, because I always heard it as a male name. There was a famous soccer player called Eike Immel. He was in the National Team. René(e) is a French name. And in France it is used for men and women. The only difference is how you write the name. Only one "é" is male and "ée" is female. But in Germany we use it as a boy's name with one "é". The same is with Frédéric and Frédérique. The first one is male and the second one is female. In Germany we only use the male version and write it Frederick or Frederik.
