Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!
a few of the above names have a meaning and are used in everyday estonian, e.g. lill, koppel, rüütel, lamp. some of these are outright swedish names, e.g. sumberg, stamberg. but I agree that there are a lot of german names here. kontaveit to me is an estonianised name, one of her predecessors must be one of the 200k estonians changing their name in the 1930ies.

How would someone "Estonianise" a name. I mean what makes it more Estonian?
