betina said:I found this link (and i hope i found the english link) to the ministry of family affairs.
Here you can see the rules about first, middle and last names, and thereafter i have linked the lists of names approved for girls and boys in Denmark.
We have theese laws so parents wont call their children names they will be nagged about. Some years ago in Denmark some parents wanted to call their son Satan and they were not allowed thank God .
Familiestyrelsen: The Danish Act on Names
and here the names:
choose either "Godkendte drengefornavne" (approved boy names)and hit "Vis liste"
or "Godkendte pigefornavne" (approvedgirl names) and hit "Vis liste"
Hope this solve it else feel free to ask more
Thanks for the links, Betina! It's interesting to see a lot of Muslim, Spanish/Latin American, Italian and German names on the lists, what could be seem as a sign of respect to the foreigners who live in Denmark.
Some names are odd, like Boy, Brutus and Cello and not royal at all
