    Obviously, there are redheads in Germany! However, they are definitely not as common as they would be in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Iceland and Norway.

    I used to work with a German American redhead female Wiccan who swore up and down that she was not Irish, just German and that Germans are redheads too.

    Molly Ringwald, however, is a German American brunette with an Irish name.

    Actually red heads including those who have reddish-blond hair, are after blond People, pretty common in Germany. There are different kind of red hair, though. As far I as I know red hair was not uncommon among the ancient Germanic tribes.

    The only famous German redhead I know is Boris Becker from Baden-Württemberg. But his hair colour is/was quite a blond tone of red.

    I thought Ringwald sounded German but apparently it's a Norman name.
