    That you have to have gendered names in Germany is not entirely true. You can have a universal first name but the second should indicate a gender. This is because the addressing is much more formal in Germany and there is no gender neutral word for that.

    In Spain it can be a name in Spanish or any other oficial language , or foreighner if it has not translation in Spanish .It can be also an invented name , but it can't harm or cause prejudice to the kid or have derogatory meaning .

    In Hungary you can only choose a name from the national register, where the names are or Hungarian names, or foreign names with Hungarian fonetics (like Dzsásztin instead of Justin). There is a different list for boys' and girls' names. The list is updated every month and individual requests are also considered.

    They should have include Bosnia (Republic of Serbs). Baby names should be fit for Cyrillic writing and you only have few names to consider, that’s why mostly here have repetitive names.
