Six Florians in Finsing, five Chrissis in Schwaig


Be careful when choosing your first name! The football coaches of your sons and daughters will also thank you.

Be careful when choosing your first name!

The football coaches of your sons and daughters will also thank you.

Name your son Tim!

Then the chances are particularly good that he will one day become a Bundesliga player.

"23 football professionals from the three German professional leagues bear the name Tim", the online portal "" found out.

This is record.

Marcel and Daniel (22 professionals each) isn't bad either.

The Florians only made it to eleventh place

, which should surprise FC Finsing in particular (and which brings us to our footballers in the district).

There are six Florians in the FCF third team alone, says chairman Florian (of course) Neubert, who also has three namesakes on the board.

And in Altenerding there are four Florians - not to forget the "surname Florians" Dominic and Marc.

Pretty complicated right?

But what should Manuel and Adrian Hahn,

FC Inning's player coaches, say?

You have three times the first name Matthias in the team, "which is not bad because they are all simply called 'Hiase'".

It's more complicated with the fourfold combo Sebastian/Bastian.

"To this day I have no idea who Wastl, Basti and Sebastian are," admits Manuel Hahn.

If only that were all... "We also have seven pairs of brothers or cousins ​​with the same last name," says Manuel Hahn.

It's good that the FCI coach is a pragmatist: He simply renamed the Ukrainian Sergej Siggi – much to his amusement – ​​“because it's quicker to call”.

And the coach finds it very practical that both full-backs are called Kilian: "What I do for one also applies to the other."

Only the Maxis of FC Langengeisling took

the task of "scoring goals " seriously in last year's friendly, because all the goals were scored by Messrs. Maier, Hintermaier and Birnbeck.

Even at FC Hohenpolding there are often three Maxis in the team, which coach Dimi Petkos is very relaxed about.

"There were five Kims on the starting lineup for South Korea at the World Cup."

Back to the maxis:

That can also be a sham.

When Harry Kronthaler entered the names in the game report sheet, he wondered: Who the heck is this Markus Stimmer?

"I kept going through all the players who were in the squad.

Until they finally enlightened me.

Markus Stimmer was and is none other than Max Stimmer.

They just called the guy Max – like the father.”

Was that the reason

why is he now the coach of a women's team?

Hardly, because last year he had three Lenas, three Franzis and five Steffis in the squad at FC Langengeisling.


As a youth coach, I myself had a Milena, a Melina and a Melanie – not easy either.

And then there are the four Chrissis at FC Schwaig.

You can guess three times the name of the player who then presented herself to Manfred Buchhauser for a trial session.

"Then I switched to last names when I wanted to address someone personally." But that doesn't always help, as the Schwaiger coach knows best, because three Lisa Maiers play in the district league alone - the best of course at FC Schwaig.

But her namesake from Schechen also knows where the goal is.

And so there were two Lisa Maiers in the goal statistics in a direct duel.

What do we learn from this?

Maybe a bit of imagination would be nice when choosing a first name.

You don't have to exaggerate like the parents of Thaddäus-Monju Momuluh (Hannover 96), who gave their son the longest first name in the Bundesliga.

At this point we would like to remember

Uwe Franz Rudi Grill, who died far too young and who owed his name to the legends of Seeler, Beckenbauer and Brunnenmeier.

Regrettably, a great county footballer's request to name his son Garrincha fell through.

At that time, the registry office had opposed it.

By the way, the boy's name is now: Tim.
