"Are the private incorrect?" should not be offered as an alternate correct solution. The translation lacks the subject of the sentence, "Namen" (DEU) or "names" (ENG).

Is there something cultural about "private names" or "personal names" that gets lost in translation to English?

Is 'personal name' not the same as 'first name'?
