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.

I don't think it's a nice sounding name. Also, the fact that this is the name of Hitler's father makes it even worse. Alois Hitler was pretty mean himself, and he cheated on his wives. As far as I know, I don't have any ancestors with this name, and that puts a big smile on my face.
