This is pretty interesting.. As you know Hohenhiem is just a name of a German town or an Universty. Hohenhiem was a "real" Alchemist.

Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, popularly known as Paracelsus, 1493-1541, was a Renaissance alchemist, matter theorist and Christian apologist who had an extraordinary influence on early modern matter theories and chemistry. Famous for his medical cures and his chemical philosophy, his work was taken up by the likes of J.B. van Helmont and became one of the dominant strands in early modern natural philosophy. His works were very popular in the seventeenth century as testified by this 1650 edition of some of his voluminous writings.

Paracelsus = Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (1493-1541). Suspect of magic because of his alchemist writings and new medical treatments.
