Dutch Baby Names

There is a variety of types of baby names used in Holland, many derived from German or related to Christianity. It is common for Catholics in Holland to use Biblical names and saints' names in Latinized forms. After World War II, Dutch names became more secular. Although there aren’t that many Dutch laws about baby names, they are not allowed to be too close to surnames. Also, you better have back up for your baby’s name, because if the name is rejected, the registrar will pick one for you!
