Albert sounds like an old grandad to me - not a very nice name for a child.

Ed Wynn played Uncle Albert, the man who had a "laughing disease," in Disney's "Mary Poppins."

I think Albert is a much prettier name when pronounced the French way (al-bear).

Famous bearer is Albert Einstein.

I think it's quite a British name; quite old-fashioned as well. Prince Albert was the prince consort to Queen Victoria. She was devastated when he died young and wore black for the rest of her life in mourning for him.

The St. Louis Cardinals' 1st baseman, Albert Pujols, bears this name. He is originally from the Dominican Republic.

Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre Grimaldi, Sovereign Prince of Monaco, is the name of the current ruler of the Principality of Monaco (born March 14, 1958). He took over the throne of Monaco upon the death of his father, Prince Rainier III. His mother was actress Grace Kelly.

Sad to say the first Albert that comes to my mind is Fat Albert! Hey-hey-hey! Also Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's love, but also a kind of tobacco that inspired the age-old telephone prank played on drugstores: "Do you have Prince Albert in a can? Well, you better let him out quick!" Also a Prince Albert is an especially disgusting type of genital piercing for men.

I simply find it royal. Albert's a royalty name. ;)

I think this is a classic name. It has been popular for over 100 years.

I was wondering why Prince Albert of England was named Albert even though he was German. And Albert Einstein and a few other Albert's have been German yet this doesn't appear to be an English name.
gulie55  2/25/2007
It's not entirely true that this name was introduced to Britain by the Normans. It existed in England prior to 1066 in its Anglo-Saxon form 'Æthelbeorht' which is modernised/Normanised as Albert. [noted -ed]

I absolutely love this name! Though, I do prefer the French pronunciation to the English or German.

I actually like this name. It just has a nice sound to it, and I like Al as a nickname.

Albert Quinn was a (rather bratty and selfish) character portrayed by Matthew Laborteaux in the later of the popular '70's-'80's television series, "Little House on the Prairie". Albert was not a real person however, the real Ingalls family never adopted a son and instead had 4 daughters and one son who died as an infant.

Albert Horák jr. and sr. are fictional characters from the movie "S tebou mě baví svět". They are played by Július Satinský and Marek Dvořák.
Maggie_Simpson  12/23/2007
That name is also used in Germany and it is pronounced ALL-Bert but the A is not pronounced like the English all (ohll). It sounds like the A in staff, like every A in German.
FoxtrottBravo  2/20/2008
You have to be careful to take accents into account when indicating pronunciation. The "a" in "staff" would have the wrong pronunciation in American English. The "a" in "father" would be better, as this has the sound of German "a" in any accent of English (so far as I know).

I would think that parents who name their son Albert are very elitist, snobby, conservative, old-fashioned, and tend to be offended by anything slightly controversial. The name sounds quite dated and geeky, even though the nickname Al has none of that snobby elitist vibe to it. However, it sounds like the nickname of a middle-aged guy by now.

Paul McCartney has a song called "Uncle Albert".

Singer Kate Bush named her son as Albert, nickname is Bertie.

I find this name very sweet, soft and tender. Perfect name for a gentle and thoughtful boy.

Talented Israeli born fashion designer Alber Elbaz, originally Albert. He is known for his wearable, feminine designs for the oldest extant fashion house Lanvin.
ponette  7/9/2008
You have an error I found.

You said that the name "Albert" was born by 2 TWENTIETH century kings from Belgium < How can this be when Albert Einstein was born with the name in 1800's?

Albert is not given anymore in France, it's way too old-fashionned and doesn't really sound nice. It sounds like Robert etc, and these are way out of fashion in France.
luxsword  10/24/2008
Even if some people think this is an old-fashioned name, I quite like it, and the nickname Bertie. By the way, I think this name is used in German as well.
― Anonymous User  12/10/2008
They even use it, written in the same way, in Hungary.

Also a masculine name in Croatia.

Awful. Makes me think of a loud grouchy old man in a wheelchair who pokes people with a cane when he wants something. The only Albert I know doesn't go by Albert, but by his middle name. He doesn't even write it out in his official signature.

Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was married to Queen Victoria and was the love of her life.
Antique_Cherub  7/15/2010
I only think of Albert Einstein when I hear this name. The meaning is great and the sound of it is classy, mature, strong. HaHa, Albert Einstein is mainly the reason why I like this name.

Also used in Hungary. [noted -ed]
bathos  1/21/2011
Indeed. I am planning on using it there as well as I am Hungarian. Not in the Top 100, at least since 2000-2009, but I think pronounced the French way it is absolutely stunning. So cute! Almost Albear, but Al-BER, so cute! Sorry. :) In Denmark, Albert is in the top 50 and climbing! I am deciding between Albert and Oliver. The only reason I would go with Oliver (popular in Hungary) is because the name is popular there and across Europe. Albert is not to that degree. But I like Albert, my little bear, and I will use Albert. :)

It means "noble and bright" and Albert Einstein is famous bearer. Wonderful!
Bazinga  12/24/2011
I quite like this, particularly with the German and French pronunciations. It's very handsome and distinguished, and has a long history. I'd definitely use it.
The only downside is that I really dislike the nicknames Al and Bert, and I wouldn't want people to call my child that. Albie and Bertie are cute nicknames though.

Albert Nozaki was a Japanese American art director who worked on various films for Paramount Pictures. He is perhaps best known for his memorable design of the Martian war machines from the 1953 film The War of the Worlds and for his Academy Award-nominated art direction on the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille epic, The Ten Commandments. He retired in 1969 due to retinitis pigmentosa, which ultimately cost him his sight. Starting out at Paramount as a draftsman in the Paramount set-design department in 1934, he retired in 1969 as the studio's supervising art director for feature films.

This name is okay. It does sound quite old fashioned though, kinda like how Arthur and Mitchell do. I would never use it personally, but it's an alright enough name.
