The name "Castro" (Latin Castrum, which gave the word Lancaster) actually is
an old form of "Castillo" and means "Castle". "Castrar", to castrate, which
has "yo castro", I castrate, is an unrelated word.

>Dude, it's translating "Fidel Castro" as "Fidel I castrate."
Oops! I DID notice that it translated "Cardenal" as "Cardinal" and changed
that, but didn't pick up on Castro (actually I did, but after I posted it).
Well, at least now I know what "Castro" means!
