Alfred is a really, really, seriously good name!

Admittedly, it's a nice name. I like the nickname Freddy, a little.
It's unfortunate it went out of style, I imagine it could make a comeback (then people would start spelling it strangely, though... like Alfryd or Elfred. Goodness!)
It's a fun name that I think can fit any personality.

I am mixed with this name, I like it, but I don't at the same time. I would name a dog this, but not a boy.

I can't really help but love this name, for reasons I am unsure of. It's cute, sweet, and I love the nickname "Fred."

I love this name. Mainly because of the personification of America from Hetalia (best anime ever!) and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

OH MY FREAKING GOSH! I wouldn't expect to see anything of Hetalia in here! Yes, Alfred is an awesome name. It sounds like a high school jockey or a cool kid, it has its own uniqueness to it.

Alfred is such an amazing name, this name has such powerful meanings, It reminds me of the nerd that will become the star, if I were to have a kid I would for sure name him this name! Everytime I see it I always fawn over it.

Love it! This name would honor relatives Albert and Frederick, and would be perfect for a future boy I might have. The nickname Alfie is adorable too, and Alfred sounds like a good name for a boy to grow into. Yes to this type of "old man" names that are ready to be revived for the next generation!

This name has grown on me and now I quite like it. Although I don't like any of the nicknames for Alfred, it would be a good name for a boy of any age. This name brings to mind a strong, reliable guy.

This name is seriously adorable. I don't know why, but to me it just is. For a little boy, I think the nicknames Alfie or Freddie are more fitting and still cute, but overall Alfred is an awesome name! It has actual history to it too, unlike all these trendy, made up names.

I really like this name because it has a lot of history to it and sounds regal and imposing, but because of those same reasons, it seems like a lot for a kid to bear. It's hard to imagine this name on anyone younger than 40 for me.

This name seems to grow on me, as Albert and Arthur. Alfred can be cute and I like the nickname "Alfie".

I usually think of "Alfred" the butler from the movie/tv show BATMAN. Alfred was the butler to "Bruce Wayne", aka "Batman". Batman was very rich and had a butler named Alfred, so that's one reason for me to like this name. Fred can be a good alternative to Al/Alfred.

Technically, wouldn't Alfred mean 'peaceful noble'? Adal (noble) and frid (peace).

Alfred Bester is an antagonist in twelve episodes of Babylon 5. Although, part of the time, he is on the "good" side, he is disliked/hated by the main characters of the show. He's a Psi Cop, a telepath who is dedicated to hunting down telepaths who have "gone rogue".

The character of Alfred Bester was named after the science fiction writer.

What comes to mind is the MAD guy: ''What, me worry?''. I don't like this old-fashioned name, and I hate the nicknames Alf and Alfie. I loathe Fred as well, so there aren't really any redeeming factors to this name.

Alfred is the worst name you could get, in my opinion:
There's that nasty song about a nerd called Al. While it's very funny, it doesn't leave you a good impression. Then there's that mean nickname Alfredo. And last, it sounds bad.

Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic is easily the best known of all novelty singers. He writes parodies of popular songs and composes silly original tunes, most of which are accompanied by, among other instruments, his accordion. Weird Al got his start on the Dr. Demento Show, a radio program devoted to odd songs, and since 1983, he has released twelve albums. He also had his own television show (creatively titled "The Weird Al Show") on CBS from 1997 to 1998, and starred in the cult classic film UHF in 1989.
