The Meaning of Darth Vader

The Question:

I've been told that Darth Vader's name in Star Wars means something in another language. Is that true?

The Answer:

According to George Lucas, "Darth" is a variation of "dark," while "Vader" means "father." (The Dutch word for "father" is "vader," but is pronounced differently; the German "vater" has a closer pronunciation to the name.)
