13. Thomas
14. Julian
15. Noah
16. Lars

13. Lynn
14. Fleur
15. Isa

1. Lukas
2. Tobias
3. Maximilian
4. Luca
5. David
6. Jakob
7. Felix
8. Elias
9. Jonas
10. Paul

Girls:
1. Anna
2. Hannah
3. Lena
4. Sarah
5. Sophie
6. Emma
7. Julia

9. Leonie
10. Laura


I'm surprised that Luca, Elias, Jonas, Emma and Leonie made it on the list. I hardly know anyone with those names from my generation Also, no Karl, Rudolf, Joseph, Michael, Elisabeth or Maria? Weird. Anyway, it's the official ranking.

I asked the moderator to move this thread to the World forum (I meant to post it there) because it's not just for Europeans. Anyone is free to respond I love reading about popular names from other countries.

They're not names from our generation though, they're the most popular current baby names (which is what I meant). The next generation in Austria will probably have a lot of Lukases and Annas walking around I noticed a lot of traditional names in your list.
