Love this name! A timeless classic, and also love the nicknames, especially Bertie, or in Hungarian Berti or Berci. Super cute for a little boy!

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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 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.

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?

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.

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).

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.

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]

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 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.
