we are expecting our first in August and have begun to talk about names. Our last name is very German and very long (13 letters). My DH and his siblings all have German, but fairly common names. We are interested in looking at German names too. We will be team green, so we need both boy and girl names. I'm mainly looking at names that aren't ridiculously long (because of the length of our last name) and names that aren't so ethnic that people can't pronounce them.
For a boy we both really like Lukas (the K uses the traditional German spelling)
For a girl my DH loves Grace (not German, and somewhat too popular to be my favorite)
I love Amelia for a girl, I think it's pretty, common enough, it's easy to pronounce and German.
I suggested Amelia Grace, and DH said he likes Amelia but doesn't know if he loves it.
Any German names that you ladies are fond of? I could use some fresh ideas! TIA!
