Old history names are badass, there's nothing strange about it.

Good to know... I was scared about the part where "the name had to be aproved at a local church". I thought differntly about Denmark... but having to get approval form a church to name a child in 2012... sounds like... weird.

The priests are also the personal registry official of their parish, so it is not the church that handle it, but merely a government official who happens to wear funny clothes on his/hers Sunday job.

I know - as a Danish citizen.

Not removed, the naming law was just liberalized so that it was much easier to get a name on the list.
I am like any rational person against that liberalization, sadly it seems that rationality is on retreat in this country.

Also, you seem to have written the girls names under boys and vice versa.
