Default questions on how to read a pedigree

I was looking at my gsd pedigree and seen beside his name shadow the 3rd and I have notice that his great grandparents had the name von so now I'm confused does that mean he is the 3rd generation to carry the name von and what does von even mean

von what? von is just a word that identifies what kennel the dog is from

Fido von Germany

means Fido from/of Germany....

when doing searches, I don't even use the von, vom, aus dem as these are part of a formal name pattern...it is the First name and Kennel name that are important
