need a little help with translation please...
I know there must be some members who speak German, or have knowledge of the correct use of the language...

I'd like to know how to correctly use the phrase "by the train station' in the German language, in naming a dog.

The research I've done shows "dog's name here von der bahnhof" so for example "Jaxson von der Bahnhof". Would that usage be accurate? Is the capitalization of Bahnhof correct? :help:

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I did, if I remember it gave "train station" translation, but not "by the."

Just want to give correct info. and verify with someone fluent in German, please...

Bump again. (sorry) Would like to figure this out so I can get paperwork filled out and sent in.

Is there anyone that speaks German, I know I've seen translation threads before...

My German husband says you would say "an dem Bahnhof" to say "by the train station". Bahnhof is capitalized because it's a noun.
