Comments for the name Adolph

Comments for ADOLPH:

This name is actually not nearly as stigmatized as Adolf. Adolph Rupp (famous to fans of University of Kentucky basketball, Rupp Arena is named for him) and Adolph Coors (beer brewers) are two very famous examples, both Americans who apparently lived without being accused of being Nazis.
