TOP 200 Austrian Names For Boys And Girls: Origin, Meaning, Variations And Pronunciation

Austrian Names

Austria is a state in Central Europe. The capital is Vienna. Austria shares borders with the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and Germany.

The first peoples who inhabited the Austrian lands in ancient times were the Celts. As pagans, they gave their children names that were said to determine their appearance or indicate certain character traits (Art – “stone”, Arthur – “strong as a bear”, Blaine – “slender”, Duff – “dark”, Marvin – “living by the sea”, Veilin -“son of the wolf”, Isolde -“battle”, etc.).

After the territory of modern Austria became part of the Great Roman Empire, the most common names of the Romans became widespread (Ignatius – “fire”, Innocenz – “innocent, harmless”).

In the 13th century, when control over the Alpine territory passed to the king of Bohemia, the list of Austrian names was supplemented by Slavic (Czech) anthroponyms (such as Peter, Hana, Boris, Daniel, Barbara, Klara, Anna, etc.).

In 1500, after the invasion of the Ottoman conquerors, Muslim names began to appear (Amina – “to feel safe”, Sarah – “princess”, Essen – “wind”, Ediz – “high”).

During the Crusades and in the era of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, ordinary Austrians gave their children the names of famous generals and monarchs (Leopold, Heinrich, Friedrich, Albrecht, Rudolph, Karl, Wilhelm, Elizabeth).

Being in close proximity to Bavaria and being, in fact, a German-speaking state, after the First World War and until the middle of the 20th century, Austria was part of Germany. Of course, this affected the naming system. At the same time, the meanings of the Austrian names which have ancient Germanic and Germanic origin barely differ from the original ones.

Modern names that are widely used in Austria can be conditionally divided into 3 groups: truly Austrian, Germanic, and foreign language. In accordance with the law, Austrians, just like Germans, have unlimited personal names. Although they may go in an unspecified order, more often than not, the main one is the first name.

It is common for Austrians to give their children compound names consisting of two separate names (Anna-Katrin, Karl-Heinz). Regardless of spelling (merged or hyphen), they are considered one name.
