how come it's named Moldau in German? has it something to do with Moldavia (Moldau in German)? they are pretty far apart from each other. This is what wiki says: "Both the Czech name Vltava and the German name Moldau are believed to originate from the old Germanic words *wilt ahwa ("wild water") (cf. Latin aqua)." However, this is the ethymology of Moldavia: "An explanation was proposed by the Romanian historian Bogdan Petriceicu-Hasdeu, who connected the name of the river Moldova with Mulde, a river in Saxony, and Moldau, the German name of the river Vltava in the Czech Republic, and argues that all derive from the Gothic word for "dust" - Mulda. It is notable that this would not be the only river in Romania that got its name in connection to the word, as Prahova could be derived from the Slavic equivalent, Prah. The Romanian linguist Iorgu Iordan proposed that the word be seen as a derivative of Molid (spruce), but the disappearance of the "i" would be hard to explain within the frame of Romanian phonetics."

It's Vltava in Czech, Moldau in German. Because the river flows through Czech republic and not Germany, I'd prefer Vltava (which is also the original name of the Bedrich Smetana's second poem in My country)...

Uno de los seis poemas sinfónicos del compositor checo Bedřich Smetana, en su obra Mi patria (checo: Má vlast), se llama Moldava y evoca musicalmente el curso del río.
