Strange German words

Nennen – it is unbelievable that a 6 letter word contains only two letters and has a meaning! I had to check the spelling a few times to believe it!

Unwetter – its something like unweather. Means it however a bad weather. According to German logics bad weather is not a weather at all.

Gift – another strange meaning of a German word for English speakers. Strange is it means something completely the opposite as a gift. Its poison in fact.
