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.
