Re: Betazoid? why zoid?

Well, Germans is not that far off. The region where we lived was once called Germania populated by the Germanen. They gave Julius Caesar a bloody nose.
Not sure when it became The Deutsches Volk and Deutschland.

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.

Maybe Betazan? Sounds better to me...
Hard to figure out how to pronounce it, though. It looks like "Beh-tazz-an" to me.

Well on the flip side of that, every time I heard "Betazoid" I kept wondering if Deanna ever ate Altoids. So... do Altoids come from the planet Alted?

Yep, same costume. Part of it, anyway.
