Dutch first names: the best ideas

Experience tradition – the most beautiful Dutch first names

Admittedly, Dutch names sound pretty unusual at first, but that's what distinguishes them. The special thing about them is that they sound concise and strong. Frisian names are particularly popular. Why? Because their short syllables stand for tradition and class.

Dutch names are also becoming increasingly popular in Germany. They are rare and old-fashioned, but still sound familiar. Names such as Amalia, Linus or Matteo are increasingly shortlisted when it comes to the difficult search for the right name for the newborn.

In Holland, on the other hand, Matts is the most common among boys and Agnes among girls. By the way, especially in the north of the Netherlands, it is common to name children after their ancestors in order to remind them and to show them respect.

But no matter whether for traditional reasons or simply because they please – these Dutch names are simply sweet as sugar!
