I was just checking on the web if Sudoko is as popular in Germany and I discovered the German word for it.

I wonder why they couldn't use Sudoku? After all, it has (I suppose I mean had) no meaning in English, either.

This literally translates as Number-Placement-Puzzle

As Bisquit said, it's just a translation of numberplace the original english name for it. There are also other names for it e.g. "Ziffernkombi", "Zahlenkombi", "Buchstabenkombi" (in the case of letters instead of digits) "Kniffliger 9er" and so on. Meanwhile the name sudoku is also used in germany.
