As in Britain, parents in most countries now use names from foreign sources for their children as well as those more traditional in their country. These lists also contain names that are not native to the country in which they are used although generally only those forms distinctive to that particular country are included.
Similar names are used in various forms throughout Europe so, to save space, I have only listed meanings under the English equivalent in the English First Names section.
