My fiance is taking German right now and this is what he said:

Translation is 'the double Lottie' - something referring to a novel. Apparently it is about two girls who have never met before at a summer camp who find out that they are twins. Lottchen would be sort of like 'little Lottie'.

Thanks! That would make sense! I was watching the original movie, "The parent trap" and at the beginning of the movie said it was based on the novel, "Das doppelte lottchen". Thanks Erin!

I read that book growing up! The mom's name was Liselotte, and the girls were Lisa and Lotti! It's very similar to that movie they made a few years back, with Lindsey Lohan playing twin sisters. ETA - it was called "The Parent Trap"

ETA - here's a link from Wikipedia about this http://en.wikipedia....Lottie_and_Lisa

Really? They re-made "The Parent Trap" with Lindsey Lohan? I remember the first one with Hayley Mills playing the twins - one had been raised in England and the other in the US. Did Lindsay do different accents for each sister, or did they have some other device to distinguish them?

Linda - I had no idea it was a book originally. I learn something new all the time around here. :rolleyes:

Yup - here's the link to the 1998 version of Parent Trap.

The original with Haley Mills, Maureen O'hara and Brian Keith, one twin was raised in Boston, the other in Monterey CA. The one with Lindsay Lohan, one was raised in England and the other in the Napa Valley of CA.

Bit of trivia, in the original with Haley Mills, the woman who played the gal fixing to marry the dad, played the mother of the gal fixing to marry the dad in the Lindsay Lohan version.

haha, I LOVED the Haley Mills version when I was growing up!!! AND I actually think there was another one inbetween that and the Lindsay Lohan one...but I think it had a different name but was a VERY similar story line...with triplets maybe...or was that a sequel?

I think there were three sequels to the Hayley Mills Parent trap--or maybe just two...and the last one did feature triplets. Interestingly, she played the part of a twin (in keeping with the orginal storyline), and she could tell the triplets apart, even when they were trying to fool people into thinking they were another sister.
