The names of mine are Teresa and Jerzy :D They used to be very common in their generation but now are rare - I ever knew only one girl of my age named Teresa.

Susanne and Klaus-Otto

(The latter is a double first name, but my father is usually called "Otto" for short. In Germany, relatively few people have a middle name, but double first names are a good bit more popular. When addressing someone with a double first name, either both or just one part of it may be used.)

Bah - I'm no expert in Danish names. But my paternal grandmother's name is Ulla (Scandinavian/Finnish diminutive of Ulrika), which certainly isn't popular anymore. My maternal grandmother is called Anne-lise (from Anna-->Hannah and Elisabeth).
My maternal grandpa's name is Leo - not very Danish, actually it's just the latin word for "lion" - but I like it.

My favourite Danish boy's name, which no one but me seems to like, is Bo. It means "to live / home".

Most Danish names are/were actually common in all of Scandinavia, but many have English, German, Biblical and French names.

Other random names that are rarely used in Denmark today:
(female) Bodil, Birgit, Jette, Jytte, Maren, Ebba, Grethe, Gertrud, Dorit, Inger, Gerda, Hedda, Aase, Dagny, Elin.
(male) Peder, Kresten, Arne, Alfred, Birger, Børge, Bent, Preben, Vagn, Svend, Steen, Åge, Finn (which is a shame, what a lovely name), Karlo, Mogens, Ole, Ove.

I'm rambling on now. XD
