    That's about 60% of my students. The others have an immigrant background and proper names.

    Tschonäsän (Jonathan)
    Yes, including that. Once subbed a shop class with a kid named Jonathan. He was adamant that the th in his name was pronounced 'z'. It was his first lesson with me and he didn't know that I typically taught English.

    EDIT: Erich, that's specifically a chav thing to give seemingly 'exotic' and 'trendy' names. In a few years we'll see lot's of Emmas, Alex' and so on judging by last years statistics.

    That gofeminin article with all those quotes. I'd like to point out that they seem to be almost exclusively from the Ruhrpott.

    OK, wow. That's interesting. At a glance, would you say that English or American culture is more influencing here? The names seem more English. There is some dirty french in there too. This behavior must be purged.

    They all come from the same place. Anglo and German culture on this level is extremely similar. See also: Scandanavia

    it's quite amusing how some Britons are so proud of their ancestry considering the history of Britain is one foreign power invading the country after another until the Normans went "nice island, well take it!" and actually managed to hold onto it.

    the kicker being the Normans being descendants of Rollo, a Viking king/high chieftain (heard both) besieged Paris took a truly enormous bribe (+250 kg of silver) for going elsewhere to terrorise the kings subjects when the imperial army got its arse together and actually tried to break the siege, he then proceeded to romp around a bit and eventually settled what became the duchy of Normandy supporting the claim in a effectively de-facto manner by virtue of having one of the most powerful military forces in the region until it was recognized de-jure in 911.

    they did what Vikings often did, they brought their families, converted to the local faith and settled down, hence why you can find traces of Nordic culture all over the place. Something like a quarter of the vocabulary of English can be traced to old norse, Wales and Welsh is actually the direct-line descendants of the various Briton/Celtic tribes on the island.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    If they are descendants of the great Viking king that conquered Britain, why should they not be proud of their ancestry?

    History of Denmark in a nutshell: Lazy pagans sitting around warring and sacrificing each other to Odin and eating pickled fish,

    The ambitious realize how shit their realm is, both in weather and in attitude, and take all the brave tough warriors with them to go conquer Normandy, England (danelaw), Sicily, etc.

    So all that was left in Denmark was the lazy people after the Viking age since the Vikings GTFO'd of that shithole.

    Fast forward to 2017 to this post.

    basically yes, it's been going down-hill since we gave up the norse gods, and the fail-train shows no sign of stopping yet.

    however when somebody does manage to mobilize this lot to actually do something else than infighting, fish eating and being lazy terrifying things can happen.

    Not that kevin, jacqueline and chantal are much better. (even without the Kevinismus).
    What's wrong with Kevin? Only asking because I caught this on the beeb earlier...
    Kevin is (and has been for at least generation now) the go-to german chavy name and has an ongoing everyday sociological debate (name<-> person connotation) associated with it

    See: The Strange German Disease Called "Kevinism": Can a Lame Name Mess Up Your Life?
    Trivia time: what that article doesn't mention, "Kevin" becoming a very popular name in Germany started with the movie "Dances with wolves" ...

    Really? because the Denmark i know has a 600 year history of losing every war, being ass whipped by sweden/norway every time they get above their station and generally achieving nothing of note. And the Danes accuse the English of living in the past...

    political union by marriage not the result of military conquest (and this marriage was to protect from scary german merchants), and lasted until the danes tried to actually fold norway into denmark, at which point things started to go south, sweden said lol no, and the danes got dumpstered.

    so they were good at getting married, but not so good at anything else.

    To be fair to Austria, you're not nearly as much of a megalomaniac with no basis in reality as good old Denmark.

    I think that's the nicest thing I've heard anyone say about Austria in quite a while.
