    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: German Kurt, Erwin, Otto, Heinz, Dieter, Dietrich, Erdmann, Florian, Franz, Fritz, Gerhard.

    German: from a personal name composed of the ancient Germanic elements wīg ‘war’ + land ‘land, territory’. This name was borne by the supernaturally skilled smith of ancient Germanic folk legend, and for this reason it may in part have been given as a nickname to blacksmiths.

    Jewish (Ashkenazic): presumably an adoption of the German surname.
