Lietuvos Respublikos piliečių vardų sąvadas
The Digest of Names of the Republic of Lithuania consists of a list of names of all the citizens of the Republic of Lithuania (based on the 2006 data from the Residents’ Register) and children who were born in Lithuania in 1991–2010 (as well as names of children who were born abroad yet have been listed in the Lithuanian Residents’ Register). The Digest features a total of 82,746 names that belong to 3.5 million persons (3,593,391 persons, to be more exact).
There are plans to analyse the names and group them by origin, inflect and stress them and provide references for names that are inappropriate and should be avoided to be replaced with names that are more correct and appropriate, establish links among different variations, derivatives, underlying names and abbreviations of the same name. Names that have been examined and structured are moved to the List of Recommended Names (see top of the page); currently, more than 40,000 names have been properly arranged and ordered.
The source of the data is the Residents’ Register of the Republic of Lithuania. In early 2007, the Language Commission acquired from the Residents’ Register Service under the Interior Ministry of the Republic of Lithuania the first and the largest compendium of impersonal data available in the Residents’ Register of the Republic of Lithuania, which consists of the name of a citizen (or a child under 16), a gender reference, year of birth, place of birth (to the accuracy of the state and the municipality), and the person’s the nationality (if specified). A list of names of new babies born over 2007–2010 has been acquired later.
