"German" can also derive from the 2 words "ger" meaning "spear" and "man" meaning "man" or "people". So "German" means either "man with a spear" or "the people with spears" which is most likely correct, considering the hunting habits of former times.

The G in German is not pronounced like the adjective German, but rather like in the word Grammar.

This name is stupid. You're naming the kid after an ethnic group!

Technically, you are not naming your child AFTER an ethnic group, he just happens to share a name with one. Sorry, those sorts of things bug me.

I think I prefer this to Herman. It's interesting.

'Hi, I'm German.'
'Well that is obvious (by the accent). So what's your name then?'

I like this name but I wouldn't use it, but I don't get what's so ridiculous about it looking like the word German, when people name their sons "Christian" all the time and no one says anything, and that name bugs me.

The name German was given to 154 boys born in the US in 2015.
