I used to live in Sweden and I always wanted to call my son Anders (although or maybe even because it's kind of old fashioned), but now I live in Germany and now it's almost impossible: "anders" in German means "different"!

Anders is such a beautiful name! I simply love it. And it's classical, you can be a 3 year old with it as a name, as well as an 18-year old, a 40-year old and a 80-year old!

In Danish Donald Duck's name is "Anders And". "And" of course, is duck.

It's pronounced AHN-desh. The rs makes a sh-sound in Swedish.

In Denmark we pronounce this very lovely name as AHN-ers. No sh-sounds, nothing fancy. Just good old down to Earth Anders.

It's a very Danish name!

I meant that it's pronounced AHN-desh in Swedish. I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear.

It's a very Swedish name, too.

This is an interesting name. I really hope it doesn't become taboo because of some dumb white supremacist terrorist.

Despite the Islamophobic, terrorist Breivek, I love this name. I much prefer it over "Andrew".

A famous bearer would be musician Anders Parker... I kind of like this name, but it's not common.

Anders Jacobsen, Anders Bardal and Anders Fannemel are Norwegian ski jumpers, winning many honours, including a gold medal in the team competition at the 2015 World Championships.

I think this is a beautiful name when pronounced the Swedish/Norwegian way. I am a writer working on a novel set in 1880s Norway and I gave my male protagonist this name after hearing it on TV while watching ski jumping. I just love the way it sounds, and I think it really suits him-- it sounds both soft and strong at the same time, which is exactly him. He is very protective and emotionally forceful but shy and romantically submissive as well, and he's just very sweet and kind. I can't hear this name without thinking of him... sigh... but please don't ever say anne-dersss *cringe*
