Arminius' German name was Hermann, chief of the Cherusci tribe.

His wife was Thusnelda.

 

And the Germans liked him because he led them successfully against the powerful Romans.

Case in point was the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, which included the utter annihilation of Publius Quinctilius Varus and his team.
