Reply to: Tibba and question about the history of the English and German language by Swiff
What did the German site say its origin was? Cyneburga is Old English, like this website says. Hopefully someone can answer the rest of your questions better, but I do know that Old English comes from Germanic (then had a lot of Old French influence). German is also from Germanic, just on a different branch. If you look at a language tree it makes more sense. Like one of these:
