I checked my own name database where I have a category for "family name as given name" and note also the language of origin. If I intersect the category with "Old High German" as origin, I get exactly one name: Luther.
But anyway, that would not count here, because it is from a German family name alright, but not in use in Germany itself...
On the other hand, if I do the same for Old English as language of origin, I get over 100 names.
