"His is also a German name but Hans Christian Andersen was from Denmark"?
The phrasing might be a bit old-fashioned, but given the limited context I guess it is technically a possible translation. :)
I think it's meant more as: "Hans" is also a German name, but Hans Christian Andersen was from Denmark.
The pronunciation is messing with us here..
I keep getting error indicators but they are not now number 3?????
It keeps telling me I write in English though I type in Danish O_O
