Heinrich Müller is a common German and Austrian name. The name is so common, that it made the search for the Gestapo Müller extraordinarily difficult. The U.S. National Archives comments: "By the end of 1945, American and British occupation forces had gathered information on numerous Heinrich Müllers, all of whom had different birth dates, physical characteristics and job histories... Part of the problem stemmed from the fact that some of these Müllers, including Gestapo Müller, did not appear to have middle names. An additional source of confusion was that there were two different SS Generals named Heinrich Müller."[1]
