The phrase would be more German to the matter, if we Could carry cannon by our sides.

German comes from germaine – which is related to being of a family – of the same parents or grandparents. But the people of Germany – that German – comes from a totally different root somehow? German being Latin. Germaine being French. Which of course comes from The Latin. So perhaps german has some German roots, too. But the funny bit of language is that a German could be german.
