Major and minor, simple, other chord names confusing the heck outta me

  1. Ok, a question born of unforgivable ignorance, but here goes..

    I know how a major and a minor chord are put together, but I see chord names such as D7, F#dim, and Asus4 (just to name a few).... These things are totally lost on me. Can someone please explain what some of these mean?

    See, I told you all I'd have a lot of silly little questions ;)
