Hit list: Most popular first names 2020
This year we have again created a hit list of the most popular boy and girl names for 2020. In the period from January 1, 2020 to December 1, 2020, we examined 81,312 birth reports from all over Germany (which corresponds to just over 10% of the births). You can find more information about this evaluation here. This list contains only first names, middle names were not taken into account.
For girls names, Mia (+3 at #1) and also Sofia (+2 at #3) are the biggest winners. Also exciting climbers are Luisa (+7 to 11th place), Amelie (+13 to 13th place), Helena (+14 to 38th place) and Amalia (+33 to 48th place). On the other hand, Anna (-7 in 21st place), Lena (-10 in 22nd place), Leni (-12 in 25th place) and Greta (-97 in 128th place) all lost popularity.
In terms of boy names, Leon (+1 in 1st place) and Noah (+4 in 3rd place) have also made significant gains. Anton (+5 in 13th place), Matteo (+9 in 19th place) and Lio (+15 in 27th place) also made significant gains. Significantly less popular were Jonas (-9 in 14th place), Theo (-6 in 21st place) and Milan (-8 in 28th place).
