The double dots over the letter l is called an umlaut. The non-germanic representation would be to substitute ue, oe or ae in place of the umlaut (double dotted o); so it would be Muebus, Moebus or Maebus. I wouldn't think I would find Mobus.

AM just starting my search for Martin Mabus, so don't know
which spellings are out there.
