Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.

Ivar
Ivar (Old Norse Ívarr) is a Scandinavian masculine given name. A other variant of the name is Iver, who is more widespread in Norway. The Old Norse name has several possible etymologies. In North Germanic phonology, several of the elements common to Germanic names became homophonous. The first element Ívarr may contain yr "yew" and -arr (from hari, "warrior"), but it may have become partly conflated with Ingvar, and possibly Joar (element jó "horse"). The second element -arr may alternatively also be from geir "spear" or it may be var "protector". The name was adopted into English as Ivor, into Gaelic as Iomhar, and into Latvian as Ivars.





In the data base are, apart from modern and traditional first names also American, Arab, Germans, English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Dutch, Northern, Russian, Scandinavian, Slavian, Spanish, and Swedish first names.
