Germany has a long and distinguished heritage and many of the baby names (boy and girl) reflects this. Indeed, Germany has a legislation which says that first names need to be gender specific. From a first name, one should be able to distinguish whether the person is male or female and you cannot simply make a name up which has been a growing custom in some parts of the US and Western Europe. Names that are pulled from a hat or just invented, cannot be adopted by German citizens.These names are therefore for boy male names only.
