Truth be told if I didn't think of the sauce every time, I probably would have way more respect for this name. Alfredo isn't terrible and certainly isn't one of the worst names within the charts. It's just that it's too associated with the sauce. Al & Fred\Freddy are good nickname options though. Even Alfred.

To the posters above, concerning the Alfredo sauce relation:

The "Alfredo sauce" is really an American creation... not Italian. Quite some time ago a man by the name of Alfredo, in Italy, was experiencing his wife (whom was expecting their child) unable to hold down most food. That is something that many women go through toward the end of pregnancy. However, the miracle of butter is something that even the sickest seem to stomach.
Alfredo realized this and whipped up some pasta with a butter sauce creation... very light, though.

From that, Americans have taken the sauce and have created a heart-attack on plates. It is fattening and disgusting now. Poor Alfredo's name has been held victim to this unfortunate event.

I do not consider it a true traditional Italian sauce (unless you take it back to its roots).
Wise people would not, and should not, relate the name to the sauce.

It's a good name. It's better for the pasta sauce though.

Alfredo is my name though I've always been used to being called Freddie more than anything. I still have mixed feelings for both Alfred and Alfredo alike. While the origin of the name and its many famous bearers are interesting, the Spanish/Italian version sounds real stupid and I get annoyed when people joke about it. All in all I seek to change my legal name to its original form or resort to looking for another name.

Alfredo Stroessner was the dictator who killed thousands of innocent people in Paraguay, which is why I don't like this name.

A masculine name that may be the name of a sauce but is also a common name and a good one. I like it.

This is the name of a delicious white pasta sauce, but it does not sound like the name of a person.

In Brazil, the correct pronunciation is 'aufredu'.

I wouldn't name a kid this. Mainly because it's the name of a sauce.
