Asked in English to German
What are boys named German mean?
"German" is a fairly common Spanish name. In Spanish, a G followed by an E is pronounced like an English H. So "German", when pronounced in Spanish style, sounds like "Herman". So "German" is just the Spanish version of "Herman". "Herman" comes from an ancient German word meaning "soldier"- it's related to the modern German words "Heer" ("army") and "Mann" ("man"). The Spanish word for the German language is "Aleman" (pronounced like all-ay-mon), which comes from the name of an ancient German tribe.
Asked in Royal Family
What royal families are connected by marriage to the Hapsburg family?
Maybe the Spanish. The Spanish Hapsburgs ruled for a while- bringing a German strain into otherwise Latin Spanish. For example you will find the words Hermano ( Brother) Herman a good German name!- Rodriguez ( of German origin, from Roderick)- and of course Mercedes, premier German car! So there is some Germanic roots in Spanish thanks to the Spanish Hapsburgs.
