    I don't need to look up much. My first name is Roman, my middle name is Greek but refers to one of the disciples, and my last name is fundamentally Austro-Bavarian, typically found in parts of Tyrol and Salzburg as well as some select places in Bavaria, i.e. relatively local.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    My name Geoffrey supposedly means "peace with God" or some such nonsense. My mother was unable to explain why she chose this name for me. I now see that Geo-, though it might mean "god", secretly refers to the Germanic god Frey, brother of Freya, the highest Goddess in Germanic mythology (please note my profile). I think this is a very happy coincidence which my late mother, would never have intended when I was born in 1944.
