1. Although few people know it, the term derives from the name Germans called Canadian Expeditionary Force soldiers during WWI ("Sturmmann"). Certain divisions of German soldiers, both in WWI and WWII (Nazis), would later call themselves this name. Its meaning is exactly what you would expect--troops capable of quickly and efficiently overcoming opposing forces.

2. Imperial troops in Star Wars.
1. "Scheisse! Sturm-"

2. If every storm trooper was a clone of Jango Fett, why do they all suck so much in episodes 4, 5 and 6?

1) A soldier from Star Wars. This type of soldier wore white armor vaguely reminiscent of the human skeleton. The Stormtroopers had many different versions of armor, ranging from forest troopers to desert troopers. The Stormtroopers were commanded by the evil Empire.

It is rumored that all Stormtroopers are clones, remnants of the great Clone Wars.

2) Stormtroopers are considered, within the storyline of the movies and other fan works, to be extremely precise when shooting. This theory is disproven to the audience /many/ times over. The characters never seem to figure it out, though.
1) Random Stormtrooper picks up a part, and holds it up for his commander to see. "*click* Look sir. Droids. *click*"

2) Obi-Wan, pointing at a blasted hull of a transport: "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise"

There are two different kinds of Stormtroopers. The most popular definition of a Stormtrooper is the soldiers that fight for the Empire, seen in the Star Wars movies. The Real Life Stormtroopers existed around the World War II era. A Stormtrooper was a member of the Nazi Militia, noted for brutality and violence. The Word "Stormtrooper" comes from the German words "Storm"(division) and "Truppen"(troops)

Were what the Germans called the Canadian army Shock Troopers. No one is 100% sure why the Germans called these Canadians Stormtroopers. However it is believed because the Canadian troops were known for Hitting Hard and Precise.

This is also supported by the fact that the Canadian troopers found a way through the German Gasses ("Kept pushing on").

The Germans later used the name "Stormtrooper" for their own Elite soldiers in WW2.
In WW1 the Canadians were known as "Stormtroopers of the British Empire".
