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.
