If you wanted to create a fake historical character involved in 19th century German typefounding, you would HAVE to name him Hermann Bauer. Why? Because of all the dudes involved, the most common first name was Hermann, and the most common last name was Bauer. Hell, there probably were six different Hermann Bauers working in German typefoundries already!
