One of the greatest ornithologists in the German-speaking world is the Swiss researcher Urs Noel Glutz von Blotzheim (g) editor of the standard research work Handbuch der Vögel Mitteleuropas.
I have no real comment on this fact, I just wanted make everyone aware of the magnificent name 'Urs Noel Glutz von Blotzheim'.

Urs is about the most Swiss first name you can find.

I have never encountered a German name "Nöl" or "Noel", but one never knows with the Swiss. Glutz von Blotzheim sounds like a late medieval/renaissance mercenary captain (like of the infamous Swiss pikemen). Maybe some ancestor captured a French wife...

Do you no whether his second name is supposed to be pronounced like (French) "Noël" or like German "Nöl". Both seems plausible for a Swissman's name.
