>>13469169 >It's as tall as many geese stacked on top of each other. Google gives me around 76 - 110 cm as the size of the average goose. As the Tallgeese is 17.4 meters tall, that would mean around 16 to 23 geese stacked from head to rear, assuming the size of the geese we are using are the same.
You'd be surprised how often the names in anime are actually references to something real, and not goddledygook like they first appear. Messala, Jaburo, A Baoa Qu, Ahgama, Ryvius, Qubeley... They all mean something. Those anime writers are a damn well-read bunch. They love to name-drop.
But anyway... Since all of OZ's Mobile Suits are named after constellations and stars/planets, there might be some connection to Anser (the goose star in the Vulpecula constellation) or to Cygnus (which is a swan constellation... and a swan is sorta like a "tall goose").
Well I'll be damned. According to Wikipedia Japan, the name is a distorted derivation of "Theurgist"!
"Theurgist" means "magician" or "miracle-worker." The katakana for theurgist is テウルギスト, pronounced sorta like "teh-oor-ghist"; that was distorted to "toohr-ghis," and that was romanized as "Tallgeese" ("tohl-ghees"). Man, that is VERY roundabout...!
