While many of the German names are common in English and exist in French and Spanish as well, some of the Polish ones might be very unfamiliar to western readers and seem like cases of AerithAndBob. During the Middle Ages many Germans settled in Slavic areas near the Baltic Sea, so a mix of names like this would have been common in many regions.

* [[TropeNamer Naturally]], in UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates or any other country with immigration or native ethnic minorities, it is quite common for a person to have a first name deriving from a completely different language than their last name.

[[{{Irony}} And to think this was the man who defeated Nazism!]]
