I was surprised that Thomas didn't automatically fill in Tom. Are they considered two separate names?

Usually, abbreviations are considered seperate names. Tom and Thomas, Max and Maximilian, Heinz and Heinrich. Some of them are accepted here together, though.

Historically, Tom has been the short form of Thomas only in English-language countries, and when Germans started to use it a few decades ago many of them wouldn't even know the connection.

I've never seen one of these. But I've seen lots of Jannik's, Luca's/Lukas', and Wilhelm's. So... no, they shouldn't be accepted.

You should accept more alternative spellings. I entered "Chris" but didn't get "Christian", and yet "Fred" was accepted for "Manfred" but not "Alfred".

I got 83 as a German... And i find it funny how 74% guessed Adolf, tho this Name wasnt even very popular. But we'll never get rid of that man, I guess :D There are many english names that also exist in Germany, like Lukas, Max, Alex, Tim, Thomas, Tom, Kevin, Nick, Paul, Steven, Leonard/Lennart, Justin, Oliver, Joshua, Sebastian, Toni... I could go on. It's the same with Girl names. It's cool how we kinda all have similar names around the western world somehow!

I filled in the 1981 column completely with boys I went to elementary school with. Our parents were not very creative.
