I made this post back in 2019.
Here's what I wrote:
For the longest time... I've been getting amazing regens with names that NO ONE has in these days and ages. Just on top of my head, I've never met anyone under the age of 30 with the name of: Per, Flemming, Ole, Bo, Preben, Lars, Claus, Torben etc.
Developers or whom that might read this, use google translator for this source - there's a list on the bottom with source: https://www.berlingske.dk/samfund/30-populaere-drengenavne-der-er-gaaet-fuldstaendig-af-mode
These are published by the biggest commerical TV-channels news site, tv2 and Berlingske, a newspaper that gets published in all of Denmark.
Here, one the other hand, are a list of the most popular Danish first names with sources from the Danish Statistic, that literally does all stats for Denmark under our government and a baby-magazines list of the most popular names.

I really hope that you guys can fix this before the new game comes out and if you REALLY like it, I can compile a list of fixes for names. Hit me up here or on my e-mail: MikeJustesenHD@gmail.com
Still an issue in FM2021. We really need a name update. Having your new amazing newgan appear and his name is Ole or Torben is such a bummer. Please, please, please fix the names for players.
