Re: The name Wochenkind - #poland

this makes sense, to register a boy as 'Wochenkind', since at the time of registration, which usually happens less than a week after birth, boys have no name yet. Traditionally the name is given at the circumcision, and till then there is nothing to enter into the name column, or in your case 'Wochenkind'. I think this was more a decision of this local clerk than a general regulation.
