I just thought it might be interesting for you that in Germany the name Benedikt was used twice as much for newborn boys in the year 2005 than in 2004. In 2004 the name was on position 50 of the 100 favourite names and changed to position 37 in 2005. This was the greatest change in the list in this year.
Most experts agree that the popularity of the name results from the new Pontifex Benedikt XVI. who is German.
I was wondering if the name Benedikt and variants of this name are more popular in other countries too. Does anybody of you know about it?
