Why do all ancient people in the west of Iran have Germanic names like Guti, Suedin, Germanii, Almani, Dani, Asgardi, and Semnoni?

We read in famous Babylonian inscription from about 4,000 years ago:

Šāru šūtu māt Elamti, šāru iltānu māt Akkadi, šāru šaddû māt Suedin u māt Guti, šāru aḫarru māt Martu.

“The south is Elam, the north is Akkad, the east is Suedin and Guti, the west is Martu.”

Kassite kings called this land not only the land Suedin and Guti but also Alman, Herodotus mentions Germanii and Daans in the same land and in the Old Persian sources this land is called Asgard/Asgarta (name of Zagros is from this Old Persian name),...

    Perhaps the germans came from Iran?   The germans certain have reputation for starting wars, like ones from Iran. 

    The population of our planet use to be a lot smaller!  How much has the population  multiplied just in the past one hundred years? 

    LOVE comes only from and with GOD!   Hitler even filmed himself and his general worshipping the Devil!  How many in Iran Beleive in the real GOD and have real LOVE in them?

    Wouldnt it be more logical to think of this from the other view?

    Why do Germanic countries have names similiar to that of ancient Eastern civilisations?

    All to do with time being linear

      it's called coincidence - just because the sound Germanic, doesnt mean they are.
