Re: Betazoid? why zoid?

Deutsch comes from "Diutisc", a word meaning people iirc, "diutisc land" would then mean "land of the (german speaking) people", naturally more inclusive than naming it after a specific tribe which happened in other languages, the Alemannen lived close to what would become France so their tribe's name became the name of Germany in french for example.
