What was Hitler's real name?
Adolf Hitler's father was Alois Shicklgruber! for the first 40 or so years of his life then he took the name Hiedler, his stepfather's surname. It probably was changed to Hitler by a clerk's error and is alternatively spelled several different ways, a common occurrence back then. So Adolf Hitler's last name was always Hitler not Shicklgruber. Hitler's father, Alois Shicklgruber was born out of wedlock to Marie Anna Shicklgruber who later married Johann Georg Heidler.Â Alois' second marriage, to Klara Poelzl, resulted in six children, of which Adolf was the fourth. The British, in an effort to make Der FĂĽhrer appear ridiculous, traced his lineage and popularized the idea that his name should be Shicklgruber, a laughable name, even to the Germans.
Am I related to Hitler? My last name is Hilder. My dad is German, and my mom is Yugoslavian.?
You will have to research your ancestry to find out............... but just because your name is similar to what you think was his name ( it was not his birth name) and just because your dad was born in Germany, is very flimsy 'evidence'...you know thousands of people were born in Germany and are not related to Hitler...................... you need to research and surnames and countries are not the way to do it...... http://familytimeline.webs.com/recordsin...
What are the most common English names Chinese people choose?
Chinese choose English names based on several factors. I often give my students new names.Some choose to simply literally translate their Chinese names to English. Examples: Sail, Constitutional Politics. I tell them that doesnâ€™t work so well in English. The translation of my name, Michael, means â€śWho is like God.â€ť Iâ€™m not.Some make up their own â€śEnglish-soundingâ€ť names. Example: Silen. I tell them my Chinese name is â€śChing chong fang tong tangâ€ť because it sounds Chinese.Some choose fruits. I once had two girls sitting side by side named Strawberry and Watermelon. I called them my fruit salad. I tell them my Chinese name is â€śGongbao Jidingâ€ť (Kungpao Chicken). They say, â€śThatâ€™s food, not a name.â€ť Same with strawberries and watermelons.I once had a boy tell me his name was Hitler. I told him, â€śNo itâ€™s not.â€ť He said, â€śYes, it is.â€ť I said, â€śNO, itâ€™s NOT!â€ť He said, â€śExcuse me! I think I know my own English name.â€ť I said, â€śI donâ€™t think you do. You are an English major. One day you may want to work in a USA company or a UK company or do business with a US company or a UK company and there is no way on Godâ€™s green earth that anyone in the US or Europe is going to sign a million dollar contract with anyone named Hitler.â€ť â€śOK,â€ť he said, â€śCall me Harold.â€ťI once had a girl tell me her name is Meow (you know, like what a cat says). I suggested she change her name to Mimi (trying to preserve the â€śmiâ€ť sound). She protested furiously while the others laughed. I found out that in Chinese, mimi means â€śboobs.â€ť OK, so not Mimi!When I give my students English names, I try to give English names that sound like their Chinese names. To me it seems respectful. Sometimes itâ€™s easy. For girls, HuaLi becomes Holli or LiLi becomes Lily. Sometimes itâ€™s harder. I felt sorry for to of my boys whose Chinese names were WenDi and LuXi. :)
After Adolf Hitler, did people with the name Hitler change their family name? If so, how?
Adolf was one of nine siblings and half-siblings, but only four of them grew up, the others died in childhood. They were all surnamed Hitler. The youngest sister, Paula, changed her name to Paula Wolf on Adolfs request - he wanted to appear as a â€śman from nowhereâ€ť. Paula lived 1896 to 1960.His half-sister Angela Hitler (1883â€“1949) married Leo Raubal in 1903 and took her husbands name. He died in 1910. Angela remarried Professor Martin Hammitsch in 1936. By Leo Raubal she had the son Leo Rudolf Raubal (1906â€“1977) and the daughters Geli Raubal (1908â€“1931) and Elfriede Raubal (1910â€“1993). They did not take the name Hitler as last names were inherited through the fatherâ€™s line.Adolfs half-brother Alois Hitler jr fell out with their father Alois Hitler sr., the first to use the name Hitler. Alois jr moved to Dublin, Ireland, where he met and later married Bridget Dowling. They settled in Liverpool, England, where they had the son William Patrick Hitler. Alois jr later moved to Germany, leaving his family in England. He remarried in Germany, where he had the son Heinrich â€śHeinzâ€ť Hitler, who took part in the German attack on the Soviet Union and died in a Soviet prison as POW, without issue.William Patrick Hitler later moved to Germany, but subsequently emigrated to the United States where he served in the U.S. Navy in World War II. After the war he changed his surname to Stuart-Houston, probably because of the bad publicity the name Hitler had got. He had three sons, all living on Long Island, using the name Stuart-Houston. None of the three has any issue.Alois Hitler sr., the father of Adolf and his (half-)siblings was originally named Schicklgruber, but took the name of his presumed father Johan Georg Hiedler. The priest who recorded the change of name in the church registry misspelled it Hitler. So there would not be any other family by that name. The name Hiedler, though, lives, if Google is to be trusted, but in other families, not in that of Alois and Adolf.
Which English or Chinese name should one avoid choosing?
Chinese names can be tricky, but generally it is best to avoid names using hanzi with unfortunate meanings (having a name meaning â€śslaughterâ€ť or â€śmisfortuneâ€ť isnâ€™t generally a good idea), or with unfortunate homonyms. This is why it is generally a good idea to consult someone who knows Chinese before deciding on a name.English names are a bit similar (minus the hanzi). Avoid names with obvious bad meanings (like Misfortune), and negative homonyms (although the latter seems a bit less important in English compared to Chinese). Interestingly there are names with negative meanings that are okay to choose (because tradition, I suppose), though whether they are strictly English (as in originating in England) Iâ€™m not certain about. My (Latin) name for instance means â€śstrict, severeâ€ť.It is also wise to take into consideration historical figures when avoiding names (such as Judas, Hitler, or Quisling).
How come Jews never tell you that Hitler had Jewish ancestry and many of his Nazi soldiers were Jewish?

Why do Jews have German and Slavic last names?
The main reason why so many Jewish last names are/sound like German last names is because of the 1787 Austro-Hungarian law in Austria. This was the first law that mandated the use of a permanent last name for Jewish people. Historically, Jewish people did not have the practise of using last names and mostly stuck to patronyms, appended with the Hebrew 'son of' (Joseph ben Jacob) or 'daughter of' (Rachel bat Laban). In Jewish legal documents and in the synagogue, last names are still not used today. The decree issued in 1787 (found here: Finding your Jewish Roots in Poland) furthermore required Jewish people to adopt German surnames.Â The process spread, and when Napolean took over most of Europe, he issued another decree in 1808 that compelled Jews outside of Germany and Prussia to adopt surnames as well. Majority of the Jews took on Polish last names. Towards the early 19th century, after the partition of Poland, Russia acquired a large number of Jewish territories and mandated the use of surnames, which were, naturally, Russianized Hebrew names. This is the reason for common German, Polish, and Russian sounding Jewish last names (-stein, -berg, -witz, -ski, -sky, -man).However, all names that sound Jewish are not necessarily Jewish, but are simply German, Polish, and Russian names; sometimes even Korean. There are very few pure Hebrew surnames, like Levy, Israel, Moss, and Cohen/Kahn. In fact, the most common Jewish surname in the United States is Miller.

Which name for the other twin: Arash or Zaheer?
I slightly prefer Zaheer, but I think both are great names. Do you prefer that the twins' names match a little (like both starting with "Ar"), or do you prefer them to sound good together but still be very different? You already have my suggestions for middle names. :) P.S. In regard to the first poster who said the name Aryan made her think of the Nazis, I will tell you honestly that that thought did come to my mind, too, when I first saw the name. Some people don't realize that the original "Aryans" were in or near Iran many years ago, and Indo-Aryan is now commonly used as a term of linguistic classification. Unfortunately, Hitler tainted the word a little by positing that the Aryans were superior to all other races, were blonde-haired and blue-eyed, and had originally come from Europe (all completely fallacious notions!). I don't think the name Aryan will be an issue for your son, as it will be fairly obvious to all he meets that he was named by an Iranian parent and not a neo-Nazi. However, it is something to consider. If you want names that are entirely devoid of negative connotations, perhaps you could choose Arash and Zaheer, instead. Here is the wikipedia article on the meanings of the word Aryan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aryan EDIT: Okay, good. Like I said, it will be obvious to people he meets that it is an Iranian name. (I'm actually glad you are keeping it; I think it is the cutest of the three.)
