I have no idea how to pronounce this but I keep thinking it's pronounced 'comrade-he' which might not be the thing you want people to think of when they see your name.

I mean, to it me isn't just a last name from some show on television. It is the 8th most popular Hispanic name, I believe as of right now? Also, it's the 33rd most common surname in the USA (United States of America). I use the "Sanchez" form of the name which is apparently the Americanized version of Sánchez (Spanish). Either way, it doesn't have a whole lot of known meanings, not affected by this, it is still a very common name!

That's very interesting that Olson (Swedish Version) actually comes from Olafsson. According to my research and family stories My 2nd Great Grandfather from Bredared, Vastra Gotaland, Sweden was named "Olof Andreasson" - if you were to mash those names together it could be "Olafsson".

The translation for "Fürst" is highly inaccurate. Prince = The son of a monarch. A "Fürst" however is a ruler around as powerful as a count or lord. I think the common mistranslation leads from the part of the bible where "The Prince of Darkness" (Satan) is translated in German as "Der Fürst der Dunkelheit". However I find translating "Fürst" as "prince" highly misleading. [noted -ed]
