Mystery Monday: Zamhilde

Mystery Monday: Zamhilde | Name News | Scoop.it
Today’s name is an early Germanic feminine name from Austria, with a clearly identifiable deuterotheme: It’s Old High German hiltja ‘battle’. But the prototheme is peculiar, and we don’t recognise it — we would love to see other examples of it, if you have any to share!

Babynamen: Alte deutschsprachige Vornamen, die für ein Revival bereit sind = Old German names that are ready for revival

Babynamen: Alte deutschsprachige Vornamen, die für ein Revival bereit sind = Old German names that are ready for revival | Name News | Scoop.it
Die Suche nach einem passenden Namen für sein Baby gestaltet sich meist sehr schwierig: Einerseits soll ein außergewöhnlicher Vorname her, andererseits sollte sich niemand schwer tun bei der Aussprache. Die Lösung: Alte deutschsprachige Namen, die heute kaum noch vergeben werden, aber trotzdem wunderschön klingen.
Clare's insight:

By "Old German", think turn-of-the-century vintage rather than Carolingian.

I swear my heart beat a bit faster when I read Parsifal Hubertus. I'll look forward to finding out what they choose. Reading further, I'm disappointed that the correspondent's friend wasn't allowed to name her daughter Amalaswintha.

Mystery Monday: Enzi / Enziman | Name News | Scoop.it
Today’s name is another two for one — possibly. The two names share an element, and so even if they are not variants of each other (they probably aren’t) they are probably related.

The first name is found in 10th C Austria, the second in the 11th C.

Österreichs Vornamenstatistik jetzt ganz anders! = Austria's name statistics now completely different!

Statistik Austria hat die österreichische Babynamenstatistik für 2015 veröffentlicht. In zwei Aspekten hat sich die Auswertungsmethode geändert.
Clare's insight:

Austria has just released its name statistics for 2015, and it's changed the way it compiles them.

 

It now includes babies born abroad to women who live in Austria; and it groups together not only variant spellings, but also names that are of the same origin. For example,

the top girls' name, Anna, covers:

 

Ana, Anne, Anna, Anne, Anna, Chana, Channa, Haina, Hana, Hanah, Hanna, Hannah, Hena, Iana, Jaana, Jana, Janah, Jannah, Yahna, Yana
