The Old German Alarich (Alderich), has left its mark in Estonia in the form of the common names: Alar, Alari and Allar.

This is a great rarely used historical name. It sounds strong and has great rhythm; Alec could be a nickname.

Swedish version is Alrik, very old.

I've seen this name on a teenage girl on MTV a year ago or so. It's awful on a girl, it's as simple as that. Some names aren't destined to be used as unisex names (although there IS a bunch of male names that I love on girls and vice versa).

This is my actual name. People can never seem to pronounce it right. =/

Alaric seems like a very strong and masculine name, but I don't think it would suit any person. "Ruler of all" can maybe be too much for a kid to bear.

My name is Alaric and I love having this name. Sure it was always annoying when there would be a substitute teacher in school and hear them butcher it, but it has always been a prideful thing for me. I like that I have no friends that share my name and I think that it has shaped me to be more unique and I also strive to be the best in most things I do; I suppose I need to to live up to the title of "all ruler." It is a great name that I intend to pass on if the opportunity presents itself. And I must agree that it is a terrible girl's name!

I love this name. I just recently heard it used as the history teacher's name on the tv show The Vampire Diaries. It's such a great old sounding name!

The 'Vampire Diaries' character bearing this name pronounces it as ə-LAR-ik.

One of the handsomest names ever for a boy. Great meaning, and can easily be shortened to Al, Alec, Larry, Rick or Ricky.

Several years ago I met a young man with this name in Hawaii, of all places. I told him I thought it was a neat name.

My name is Alarec, pronounced "uh-LAIR-ek". I've been proud of my name, and I'm always getting compliments about it. This name should never be shortened or simplified! Why anyone would think Rick or Al or Alec or *shivers* Larry is better than Alarec/Alaric is beyond me. This name is unique, powerful, regal, historical, amazing... It should be embraced, not ruined. Most importantly, bullies simply can't find a way to make fun of it by rhyming or whatnot. Do not name anyone this if you're just going to dumb it down later. If you want a kid named Larry, name him Larry, not Alaric.

Sounds like the name of a wise, strong king. I adore it as a character name, though it's a bit out there for a real person.
-- RoseTintsMyWorld  5/9/2016
The name Alaric was given to 181 boys born in the US in 2015.
-- HerculePoirot  6/18/2016
It is pronounced (A-lair-ick) I really like it! It's cool.
-- firestar11  8/14/2016
My 11 year old son is named Alaric. We pronounce it Uh-lair-ick. Everyone loves his name and we love that it is unique but not made up. It has great meaning also! I love his name and he is very proud of it.
