"What's it all about Alfie?" My cousin is named after this song, which comes from the aforementioned film.

Alfie could be a cute name for a litte boy, but I'm not quite sure about when he was older.

My cat is called Alfie but I would never call my child Alfie.

I cannot imagine a grown man with the name Alfie, especially if he's a respected professional of some sort: "Dr. Alfie Johnson, renowned eye surgeon" or "Vice President Alfie Tucker." Maybe it's because of the series of kids' picture books by Shirley Hughes about Alfie and little sister Annie Rose.

I absolutely loathe this name. In my honest opinion, Alfie is not a cute name at all.

I think Alfie is adorable!

The popularity of this name, once considered grandad-ish, in Britain in the past few years has probably been due to the fictional Alfie Moon in the British soap EastEnders, played by Shane Richie from 2002 to 2005. However, I think it's passed its peak and I think that in a few years time it will go out of fashion again.

I think Alfie is cute, but a little too feminine sounding for a boy I think.

There's a Lily Allen song called Alfie. It's about her little brother.

Never name your child this, you'll regret it and your child will end up using its middle name the rest of its life.

If you're going to use this, call him Alfie, but name him Alfred. It's just too cutesy for a grown-up man.

This sounds really babyish as a given name. It makes me think of a fat baby. It also makes me think of that rather freaky music video by Lily Allen about her little brother, in which his teeth were huge and Lily herself was kind of creepy.

Alfie is the main character in the disturbing children's book Alfie's Home. He has a dysfunctional family and is a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of his uncle. The book is a completely misguided and frankly disturbing anti-homosexual book disguised as a children's book dealing about abuse, with Alfie thinking he is gay as he grows up, the cause pretty much stated to be lack of attention from his dad and abuse. For any child dealing with the nightmare of abuse, it would be a very confusing and upsetting book.

Alfie is the name of Craig Owen's baby in Doctor Who, at first he prefers to be called Stormageddon Dark Lord of All though.

I don't understand its popularity in Britain! It's way too cutesy because it's a nickname. Besides, there's this character in "Death at a Funeral" that's named Alfie. He's this rude (but hilarious) old man that... well, I'm not going to ruin it for you.

Uncle Alfie in "Death at a Funeral."

I've never heard of this name in the US, so I'm really surprised to see how popular it is in the UK. I always thought it was a nickname for Alfred... I don't really like it as a full name. It sounds kind of childish and super British. I did know a puppy named Alfie once though.

Chris Wolstenholme's (Muse bassist) eldest son is called Alfie. I don't know if it's his real name or a nickname for Alfred.

I think this is a really cute name. In England I know this is very popular, but in the US it hasn't charted so it would be an unusual choice, but I may use it one day. I think it can still age well.
