German to Dutch translations [Non-PRO]
German term or phrase: Bach, Wagner, Brahms, Beethoven, Hitler, Schultz, Berger, and Schwartz
Which of these German surnames means "best garden" in Dutch?
Di
Dutch translation:(von) Beethoven
Explanation:
I think I remember this comes from "Van Bietenhof", this means "from the garden full of beetroot", so it has nothing to do with "best". None of the other names has anything to do with gardens. "hoven" means "gardens".

obvious


Explanation:
It is so obvious that I don't want to tell you.
A more interesting question - which of the above German names, when spelled backward, is the name of a rude part of a male horse in Mongolian.
