10 almost forgotten first names that are too good to disappear – video

They are sonorous, distinctive, often have a wonderful meaning – and are still close to becoming extinct. These first names have been forgotten so far that they may soon no longer be used.

The downside of the name trends

Because when certain trend names suddenly become insanely popular, it goes without saying that other names take a back seat and disappear more and more. This is a completely natural process, after all, common names such as "Partelmeß" or "Bertholmes" have long been out of use in the Middle Ages. But the almost forgotten names that you see in the video deserve a second chance – because it was not without reason that they were once a trend that inspired many parents.
