    Re: Names

    GOD! There are so many names, that it would take forever to write all of them down. I've added Romanian, but there are so many Romanian names that I don't think exist in any other languages. Should I add them too??

    Re: Names

    Hi Robbie

    I think the thread starter just wanted international names, the ones that can be found in most languages. Otherwise, you are quite right, it would be endless!

    Re: Names

    Some critics - the names aren't well sorted and just too random. We have male names, female names, celtic names, ancient Greek names, Slavic names and Germanic names, some of which don't even change. What about
    1. sticking to biblical names which all exist and differ in all European + North African & Middle Eastern languages or sorting names by source?
    2. Parting male and female names?
    3. Sorting languages by groups?
    I'd do it myself, just need you to agree
    Well, anyway, here are the German names.

    I agree: the list needs some major sorting...

    Re: Names

    I have reorganised the list, so that the male names and female names are seperated from each other. I have also added Romanian (my last try didn't work so I had to do everything all over again ).

    Re: Names

    Kinda (tried to) sorted the languages in groups, could be somewhat scrown up, since i use open office. also, added Russian and some German. B'sides, someone added some unique Romanian names to the english list. For now I left them there.

    Re: Names

    I only added the Romanian name Catalin, but I hope you don't think that it's only a Romanian name. I believe that it exists in other languages too!!!

    Besides, someone added Blaise which is a typical French name. What about Oriol, which is strictly from Catalan. And let's not forget Stanislav (??!!) and Diego (??!!). So before you criticize me adding Catalin (only one name), take a look at the other "unique" names in the list.

    If you ask me, the list looks pretty good. Good job all you guys who took the time to add your languages.

    That I've criticized two posts ago But indeed, most of them are Latin. Sorry.


    Edit:
    isn't it Stanley, without the -slav? It should be. Whoever is going to edit next, add Фома - Foma for Thomas in Russian. Prettypleasewithsugarontop!

    ...and exist in the English language as well as in other languages. Hast du niemals Harry Potter gelesen?? Ich habe z.B. nicht Tiberius und andere lateinische Name Namen in diese Wortliste zugefügt.

    Re: Names

    Before I update the Greek column do you want even the rare ones? Names that are hardly ever used like "Benjamin"?
