Ja vol!

Top GERMAN baby names, via Metafilter.

Boys' names that struck me funny: Felix. Moritz. Fabian. LINUS.

Girls' names: Finja. Lotta. Wiebke. Elif??

Oh, I think Linus is getting to be big in American geek circles. I know of two baby Linuses.

I'm sure they think Madison, Addison and others are just as interesting. And I think Linus is cute. (But as a Lost fan, it reminds me of Benjamin Linus...)

Elif is a pretty common Turkish name. Moritz sounds like a cat..

Yeah, but Linus is pronounced Lee-nus in Germany. It takes some getting used to. :-)
