Why is Aldi called Aldi?     The answer is here (see slide 3)   In short, ALDI (which is is a privately owned business that started in Germany in 1948) was founded by two brothers, Karl & Theo Albrecht.    The name ALDI comes from the original family named store,  Albrecht Discounts.

I notice that the original company was later split into ALDI North (led by Theo) & ALDI South (led by Karl), and that ALDI Australia is part of the ALDI South group.

Sounds a little like the division of the world by Pope Gregory VI in 1493!
