So, I went to the cinemas on Wednesday to watch one of the craziest films I’ve seen in a long time. It’s premise? Nazis who, after being defeated in 1945, fled to the Moon and now they’re back to conquer Earth. It’s a shame that it was only open for the one day here in the UK, although I’ve been told by my father that it’s run has been extended due to demand.
It’s a joint Finnish-German-Australian film, so the names associated with the film are a mixed bag, but it’s a good kind of mix:
Aila – a Hebrew name meaning oak tree.
Götz – the German nickname for Gottfried, which is the German form of Godfrey, a name that means peace of God.
Klaus – the German short form of Nicholas, which means victory of the people.
Peta – the female form of the name Peter, which means rock.
Renate – the German feminine form of Renatus, which means born again.
Samuli – the Finnish form of Samuel, which means God has heard.
Tero – short form of Antero, the Finnish version of Andrew.
Udo – variation of Odo, which itself comes from Otto, which means wealth.
Vivian – derives from the Latin vivus, which means life.
