A surname of German lineage that is one of the most ancient names ever recorded, in Germany or elsewhere. It may refer to a musician, or player of the "pipe," or a spice merchant, particularly a merchant of "pepper." What surprises most to hear is that a German prophecy exists concerning a girl with this surname, predicted to be born in 1992. According ancient texts, she is fated to either save or destroy the world. Some scholars say she has the power to shift continents, others say she can create devastating maelstroms with the flick of her wrist, but that is only interpretation. Still, it's a story worth investigating.
