A little help with an anagram from a novel?

I have just finished reading Walter Moers' 'The City of Dreaming Books,' and part of the fun of reading it was figuring out anagrams given for famous authors' names.

Rasco Elwid - Oscar Wilde
Perla la Gadeon - Edgar Allan Poe
etc

But one name stumped me: Dolreich Hirnfiedler. Within the book, he is infamous for starting every other poem with the word "O!"

Please help, it's really bugging me!
