Very poetic. My name comes from Anglo-Saxon, Old English, Henry Kemp and means "home-ruling warrior," which makes me sound a lot more fearsome and frightening than I actually am! It corresponds to the German words Heim (home), Reich (rule), and Kampf, a struggle (as in Mein Kampf!). The Kemp part, my family name, meant a champion and later a soldier.

Hail for the warrior:D
At first thank you for your reply.I have been interesting in personal names for a long time.Because I think they are the most important pieces of world's cultures.
For example names like yours show us the interaction between different societies.
And I hope that more people will support us to expand our knowledge about our own names.

My first name (Ignacio) is a Spanish name. It comes from the Latin name Ignatius, which in turn comes from the Latin adjective 'igneus', which means 'fiery'. In short, the name, at least in Latin, gave off the idea of a hot tempered individual. I don't know about that. I'm not particularly prone to anger, in fact I'm kind of easygoing. I am passionate, however, about certain things in life, like music, language and languages.

My name is Levi Tooker. Levi (לוי) is a character in the Old Testament. The origins of the name are uncertain:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levi#Origins
Quote:
The text of the Torah argues that the name of Levi refers to Leah's hope for Jacob to join with her, implying a derivation from yillaweh, meaning he will join, but Biblical scholars have proposed quite different origins of the name. Many scholars suspect that it simply means priest, either by being a loan word originating from the Minaean word lawi'u, meaning priest, or by referring to those people who were joined to the ark of the covenant. Some scholars believe that the Levites were not originally Israelite, instead originating as migrants, and consequently consider the name to refer to the Levites joining with either the Israelites in general, or the earlier Israelite priesthood in particular.


My last name, Tooker, is an old variant of Tucker, which derives from the verb tuck, 'to full cloth'.
Quote:
Middle English tuken, touken "to torment, stretch [cloth]" from Old English tūcian "to torment, vex" and Middle Dutch tucken "to tuck", both from Proto-Germanic *teuh-, *teug- (“to draw, pull”) from Proto-Indo-European *deuk- (“to pull”). Akin to Old High German zucchen "to snatch, tug", zuchôn "to jerk", Old English tēon "to draw, pull, train".

So Anhalzer is just a random collection of letters, with no inherent meaning? Are you sure that's how they came up with it?
