    There are some international names that occur in many languages but have different forms in each language. Let's make a dictionary of such names.

    I've tried to add as much names in Dutch as I could, but it's difficult for we don't always use one equivalent for one name (sometimes the original name is used so some have more versions).

    Hello,

    I added accents in the French column and the few missing French names

    Added English names.

    Bartold, some of the names you have included are far from being international. Kazimierz and Stanisław are typically Polish and you won't find them elsewhere, unless in books about Poland :)

    Added Czech names.

    Janek, we use these names also. At least Stanislav is usual Czech name. Kazimír (or Kazisvět) is usual name of evil king in Czech fairy tales.

    Hi,

    I completed Spanish and Catalan columns.

    Mithrellas, have a look, please! :) I think your "Bartomeu" is absolutely right. My doubts are "Matthew" - "Matías" --> could that be "Mateo" - "Mateu"?
    And I think "Peter" - "Pedro" in Catalan is "Pere" instead of "Pol". What do you think? I haven't changed it yet, if you agree, feel free to do so! ;)

    Matías and Pol were the first names that came to my mind but you are absolutely right:
    Mathew is Mateo and Mateu (in Spanish and Catalan) and also as you said, Pere is the right one in Catalan for Peter.
    And I have a friend named Pere, how could I forget!

    Thanks for your corrections Betulina! :)

    Hi,

    I added Finnish counterparts to most of the names. Sometimes there were many names corresponding to one English name so I had to leave some out.

    I've seen a Gagauzian Turk named Mihail, of course the equivalent of Michael, so I added that to the list. (The angel is called as Mikail, actually.)

    I've also added Suzan(Susan) to Turkish column.

    GOD! :eek: 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??

    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! :eek: :p

    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 :D
    Well, anyway, here are the German names.

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

    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:mad: ).

    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 :rolleyes: added some unique Romanian names to the english list. For now I left them there.

    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. :thumbsup: Good job all you guys who took the time to add your languages.

    That I've criticized two posts ago :D 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?? :D Ich habe z.B. nicht Tiberius und andere lateinische Name Namen in diese Wortliste zugefügt.
