German is often known to sound harsh as a language because it’s rich in consonants, but in reality, German is a language full of love and specificity meant to pinpoint exactly what a person is feeling in words. And if you’ve ever tried to say exactly how you feel for baby already, you know how difficult a task that is, but looking into German baby girl and baby boy names might make that task easier for you.

Because German is at the root of a lot of commonly spoken languages, some names you might not have expected are German or are a modern form of an older German baby name. Eloise, though a gentle and sweet sounding name, actually means ‘famous warrior’ and has its origins in a name meaning hale.
