Did anyone else notice that all the characters of Hey Arnold had German names?

As far as I know, Helga and Olga are German and Russian equivalents of each other respectively. The last name Pataki is most likely Hungarian. To name some sparadically... Harold is Scandinavian. Lila is Arabic. Nadine is French. Torvald is Swedish. Philip (Grandpa Phil) is French.

So yeah, Gertie (Gertrude), Arnold, Helga, Gerald, and Ruth are all German.

tbf looking at the cast list there is a very pan-European feel to all the character names. German does seem to be the most popular though.

Yup. Stinky Peterson is totally a German name.
