"A friend of mine blamed Islam for Nice attacks. I said to her: if you have half a brain you wouldn't blame all Muslims for terrorism just like we don't blame all Christians for crusades."
Well, if you had a whole brain instead of just a half, you'd read the Quran and start connecting the dots. Btw, crusaders were a response to Islamic jihad, not a cause.

1. "Ruler of an army" from the German words "walten" (v. to rule, reign, control, govern (root: 'walt-') and "Heer" (n. army or military troops)
2. "Lord of the Forest" from the German words "Wald" (n. forest) (the final 'd' is pronounced hard like a 't') and "Herr" (n. lord, master, ruler, God, gentleman, Mister, title of respect for a man, man, grown male).
I tend to go with #2 because the direct translation of "lord of the forest" would be "(der) Herr des Waldes" or "(der) Waldherr "forest lord"". ("Waldherr" is still an actual family name.) In fact, the older spelling of the name was "Walther" (e.g. Walther von there Vogelweide - German poet ~ 1200 AD). In German, putting the two words "walten" and "Heer" together to form Waltheer would be translated "a ruling army' or "the governing army", denoting that the whole army was doing the ruling or governing and not referencing any single individual. The way you would translate "ruler of the/an army" would be "(der) Heerwalter". Here, the ending "walter" would simply be translated "one who rules, reigns, controls, governs". German removes the final '-en' from the infinitive form of the verb, adds '-er' to the end of the root and capitalizes the word to create another word meaning one who performs that action. So from the way German forms its words, meaning #2 is grammatically correct; meaning #1 is not. Some explanations have the name coming from the Normanic influence on the Old English cognate "Wealdhere" (but "weald" means forest and "here" means army or enemy (could also refer to an individual enemy)) but the name "Walther" was already in use over in Germany and Austria at that time.
Still, if you ask me, both meanings are pretty cool
