Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

^Well, "Jaeger" is the German word for "hunter," which presumably is the source of the name -- nothing to do with "jaguar," which is from a Tupi-Guarani language in South America. I take it as being of similar intent to the frequent use of "Kaiser" names in Japanese tokusatsu and anime, like the Keizers [sic] and Keizer Ghidorah in Godzilla: Final Wars, or Kaiser Buldont in Ohranger.
