This was the name of Hitler's father.

I don't think Hitler's father was heard of enough to ruin this name. That said, I don't really like this name much.

German pronunciation: AW-lo-ees. [noted -ed]
Traditional German name, especially in Bavaria (south-east). Considered very old fashioned, rarely given to newborns today.

I always believed it to be pronounced to rhyme with "voice".

I like this name, but the association with the horrible father of the even more horrible Hitler has made it unusable.

Oh my gosh I think this name is SO cute! I pronounce it Ah-Lois, though. I didn't know this was the name of the horrible Hitler's father, but it still doesn't ruin the name for me. I'd name my child this if it was a boy.

Although I have a hard time finding the correct way to say the name, I think it's very beautiful. As of where I live (USA), finding this name on somebody is like finding a needle in the haystack. All I hear around me are names such as Michael, John, Jacob and Matthew. I'd love a friend named Alois at my school.
