(Eine deutsche Version dieser Seite befindet sich hier.)

Websites and pages about Albanian given names are rare on the the Internet and offer mostly only simple name lists without any informations about meanings and origins, like e.g. the following list. Thus this page here with Albanian names plus informations about many of them is probably quite unique.

Most of the names made it into the hitparade of the 700 most frequent names for newborns in Switzerland in the year 1997. (The complete hitparades can be found on my German-language name site "Kunigunde" here and here.) These names are probably quite frequent as well in Albania, in Kosovo and other regions where Albanians live.

Further informations about the following names, corrections and additions are of course welcome anytime! (contact information).
