By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

German researcher Knud Bielfeld has compiled his popular list of baby names from the last 12 months and Ben and Mia topped the list in Germany.  Bielfeld analyzed 162,943 birth records to make his list, and while he isn’t the only researcher compiling top baby names, his list has become one of the popular ones every year.

Last year’s list had Maximilian and Sophie as the most popular baby names, but they have now dropped to 6th and 14th place this year.  So what are the top 10 names of 2011 for boys and girls in Germany?  Check out the list below…
