Comments for BAPTIST:

The Italian form of this name is "Baptista," which is the first name of Baptista Minola from "The Taming of the Shrew."

More of a word than a name to me.

Ugh. This would look ridiculous as a first name and it unfortunately reminds me of the Southern Baptist Convention and other conservative churches.

The Armenian equivalent is Mkrtich. "Mkrt" is the root word. Mkrtel means "to baptise" (-el being the verb suffix). Variants are Mgrdich, Meguerdich, Migirdich, (Western Armenian variant). Written with the Armenian script: Մկրտիչ.

It is commonly used as a first name, but it can be used as a last name by adding the -ian and -yan suffix (i.e.: Mkrtichian).

This is a name? It reminds me of those Independent Baptist groups who think that creationism should be taught in public schools and that women should all be long-haired housewives with 15 children. It's not a good choice. And if you really do live in Germany and want to use it, please use Johann Baptist, not Baptist by itself.
