User comments for Adolf (Famous Bearer Only)

There was a Swedish king named Adolf Fredrik (he went by both names). He lived 1710-1771 and became king of Sweden in 1751, due to the influence of the Russian empress Elisabet.

Hey. I bet you guys didn't know this one, Adolf Hitler? Hmm. Haha.

I have noticed an error under the name of Adolf Hitler being a facist dictator, he indeed was NOT facist. Mussolini was facist. Between 1933-1945 the Third Reich was a NATIONAL SOCIALIST government.

In no way did Adolf Hitler perverse the historical rememberance of the name. I still believe it is a beautiful name as is the world famous bearer of the man who brought Germany out of ruins after WWI. Even America had him in TIMES magazine for Man of the Year. I plan to name my first born boy Adolf.

I am deeply shocked. For the sake of your first born boy I hope you will either change your mind or never have a boy.

No sane parents in Germany would name their child Adolf. However there is no law against it in Germany. Many people don't understand that but there is an explanation: In Germany you are allowed to name your baby any name if you find one person who already bears the name. Decades ago, men have been named Adolf after their godfathers, so finding an old man named Adolf wouldn't be so difficult in Germany. Still I have never met any Adolfs younger than 50.

Adolf Sax - the man who invented the saxophone. Too someone ruined it because it was also the name of an inventor whose instrument I play!

The middle name of Homer Aldoph Plessy, from the US historical case Plessy vs. Ferugson. Also the first name of the person who invented Adidas.

Adolf Hitler Campbell is a child from New Jersey. He hasn't done anything to make himself particularly famous, except for having a singularly unfortunate name and having a father (a Holocaust denier, naturally) who requested his name be iced onto a birthday cake at the supermarket. That news has been reported the world over. Hopefully little Adolf will distinguish himself in better ways than his namesake.

A famous bearer of this name is French president (Third Republic) Adolphe Thiers (1797-1877) [president in 1871-1873]. There is also a famous French Jewish politician: Adolphe Crémieux (1796-1880). The French write this name "Adolphe" but it's pronounced exactly the same way in German or Swedish. The French never pronounce the "e" they put at the end of words.
