robertc Posted December 14, 2012 Posted December 14, 2012 (edited) (Correction - In the subject line I meant CharacterS) Does anyone know what Koothrappali means in Hindi? Also, how did the show's creators think of that name? Is Howard a Polish person? He may also be Russian or other Eastern European descent. Wolowitz seems like a Polish name - anyone know its origin? Hofstadter is obviously a German name and is also the name of the computer science author, Douglas Hofstadter. He wrote "Godel Escher Bach." "Stadt" means "country" in German. Amy's middle name is Farrah and was possibly because of the TV star of the seventies, but they've never mentioned it. Rostenkowski is a Polish name. I wonder what it means.
