Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether a name is male or female if you come from a different country. So today, let's see if I can guess the gender of these tricky German names!

Funny, In the Netherlands you would see Ilja connected to a girl sooner, but I it can be both genders. René is also a name we use for both genders. But René/Rene is usualy for boys and Renee/Renée is for girls. Acceptions are always there ofcourse.

I didn't know the first and second name, but I have a friend called Mette and I also know a boy named Ilja. I heard of Sören I think it's a name more used in north of Germany. I didn't know of Bente anytime before. The mom of a friend is called Eike, it's pretty confiusing to hear it is a male name. Gundel..... I think I read this in an old fairytale book, but I don't know which fairytale it is. Mika is the name of the dog from my neighbours. I'm from Germany! I think I heard from Sönke I think it's the name of a youtuber. My moms name is Anke lol. A primary school friends name is Arne. My diving trainers is Rene. Thx for the video❤

There are crazy names in Germany and also in the US. But thank god there is the soft 'S' and soft 'J' in Germany. Names like Sandra, Sarah or Julia sounds so much better in the German language.

Just as Renee, it's the same with 'Toni' and 'Robin'. And 'Marian' is used in Germany for men, while in the US it's mostly used for women. And by the way: I'm from Germany and know all of these names. Here are too many people with too little life experience...
