First Name Directory - Starting with M
This site is dedicated to maintaining a database of first names from all over the world. We are still working to add all meanings to the names and sort them by gender, ethic and other behavior.
Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.
MatejMatej (Bulgarian Cyrillic: Матей) is a given name that originates from Hebrew Mattithyahu, used in countries of Central and Eastern Europe. It is one of the most common male names in Slovakia, Poland and Slovenia. It is also common in Croatia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and less common in the Czech Republic. The Czechs use Matěj, with a soft t. In Ukraine it's Matvij, in Russia Matviey, and in Poland it's Maciej. (The Poles also use its diminutive version: Maciek, pronounced ['mat͡ɕɛk].)
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.
Note: With an international list of names it can occur that some first names are identical to label names. Hereby we point out that all used marks are property of their respective owners.
