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.

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.

This name is growing on me. Like Arthur, it feels more and more noble as I think about its royal beginnings.
-- RedGyl  4/5/2008
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.

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

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.

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

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.

When I hear the name Alfred, I usually think of Alfred Hitchcock, Alfred from "Batman", and Alfred F. Jones from "Hetalia- Axis Powers".
-- HetaliaGirl1  1/2/2013
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.
-- Anonymous User  4/17/2013
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.
