One famous bearer of this name is Dudley Dursley from J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He's a spoiled, rotten person.

I like the "studley" inference. I hate the "dud" prefix.

If I'll ever have a dog, I would call it Dudley! I think it's a perfect name for a cute, cuddly, little doggy!

Awful. Just awful. The guy would be called Dud. The name sounds utterly silly.

Does no one else remember Dudley the Dragon? I know he wasn't that popular, but still. He had his pictures on shoes!

As a Harry Potter-fan, I don't like that name. Always reminds me of Dudley Dursley, a pathetic, spoiled bully. I doubt that name will be popular, while the Harry Potter-series still are really popular.

My mother absolutely loved this name for a boy. I don't see the appeal at all... who wants "dud" in their name? It also sounds very... plump.

Cary Grant played the angel Dudley in The Bishop's Wife (1947). The name was very dapper on him, I think.
