Since the name means "noble wolf", I think this would be an excellent name for a dog, instead of Adolf which would be too much, even for a dog.

This name used to make me think of Hilter but since Adolfo "Bofo" Bautista got famous I really like this name because now when I think of Adolfo of think of this great scoccer player. By the way, Bofo is such a cute nickname.

Surprisingly, this name is still used in Latin America. It actually appears on the US top 1000! I guess over there, the association with Adolf Hitler wasn't too much to ruin this name.

Adolfo Domínguez Bastida, better known as Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, (Seville February 17, 1836 – Madrid December 22, 1870) was a Spanish post-romanticist writer of poetry and short stories, now considered one of the most important figures in Spanish literature. He adopted the alias of Bécquer as his brother Valeriano Bécquer, a painter, had done earlier. He was associated with the post-romanticism movement and wrote while realism was enjoying success in Spain. He was moderately well known during his life, but it was after his death that most of his works were published.

His best known works are the Rhymes and the Legends, usually published together as Rimas y leyendas. These poems and tales are essential to the study of Spanish literature and common reading for high-school students in Spanish-speaking countries.

His work approached the traditional poetry and themes in a modern way, and is considered the founder of modern Spanish lyricism. Bécquer's influence on 20th century poets of the Spanish language can be felt in the works of Octavio Paz and Giannina Braschi.

This name just creeps me out; not only because is the Italian translation of Adolf (hence Hitler), but also because it was the name of one of my teachers when I was in primary school, and he was as mean as hell!

Well I hear good and bad about this name but as an experience user I must say I love this name. In high school my baseball friends cut it in half and added a silent E and called me ADOE. Now in my new place of living I have gotten good feed back the only thing is I can't do anything wrong cause everyone will know who it is, not like Mike you have to ask which one?

Adolfo Bresciano was an Italian-born Canadian professional wrestler, better known by the ring name Dino Bravo. Bresciano began wrestling in 1970, taking the "Dino Bravo" moniker from Pepe DiPasquali, a wrestler from the early 1960s who had teamed with Dominic DeNucci as the Bravo brothers, Dino and Dominic. He was trained by Gino Brito and often worked in a tag team with his mentor, billed as Brito's cousin. Bravo worked in a number of other tag teams, partnering with, among others, "Mr. Wrestling" Tim Woods and DeNucci.

This name is just one letter different then Adolf, and not many people will know the difference as soon as they read Adolf. I think Hitler ruined all forms of this name... Adalwolf, Adolf, Adolfo, and Dulf.
