What kind of name is Vlad

The first name Vlad

How civil is Vlad?

Almost every first name is represented in all social classes. This also applies to the name Vlad. The name is so rare in Germany that it is hardly possible to make valid statistical statements about it. The comparatively few observations that we have on the name suggest, however, that in recent years parents who could be assigned to the so-called "lower middle class" have chosen the first name Vlad very often. Measured by socio-economic indicators such as »education«, »income«, »independence from social transfers« and the »housing situation«, these families are slightly below the national average. In contrast, the name Vlad seems to be just as underrepresented in upscale, middle-class circles as it is in very simple milieus. This can also be seen from the SmartGenius Citizenship Index. For Vlad it is 89, which is below 100, which corresponds to the average of the population. Other boy names, which are also comparatively seldom given in Germany and show a similar social prestige according to the middle class index, are for example Vasilev, Novak and Luís. However, it is crucial that the reception of a name depends to a large extent on the respective cultural context: first names in particular, which are not very common in Germany, can be perceived very differently in other linguistic and cultural areas, be very widespread and have an extremely high reputation enjoy.
