Not that famous, but Fred and his twin brother George are the major pranksters of the Weasley family in J.K. Rowling's famous series "Harry Potter." They adore playing jokes and breaking rules, and of course they were born on (when else?!) April Fool's Day.

I don't really like it, it's too old-fashioned. It does suit some people though when you look at them.

I'm not a big fan of this name. All I can think of when I hear it is Fred Phelps.

Fred Mertz, played by William Frawley, was Ricky and Lucy's landlord and best friend in the TV show _I Love Lucy_. His whole name was Fredrick Hobart Edie Mertz.

I hate this name. It sounds terrible and old. I'm not one for the classics, though.

A famous bearer was the English TV presenter, and national institution, Fred Dibnah.

This name could also be short for Alfred.

It's old fashioned and kind of plain, but for some reason, I like it.

Fred Weasley (jr), the son of George Weasley and Angelina Johnson in Harry Potter.

It's an okay name, but I much prefer Freddie as a pet form of Frederick.
Pippin  4/13/2008
I love this name, mostly because it was Mr. Rogers' first name. Is there any better namesake for a child?
welovejamesarness  7/19/2008
In both English and Dutch, Fred can also be a short form of Alfred.

The name Fred is used in Limburgish as well, where - apart from Frederick - it is often used as a short form for Godfried.

Fred Figglehorn is the six year old character in the YouTube series, with examples like "Fred on Thanksgiving" and "Fred goes Swimming."

Fred Burke was a major character in the later seasons of Angel. She was played by Amy Acker. In this case, 'Fred' was short for 'Winifred'. I thought it was cute, way better than the nickname Winnie.

I used to like this name. But Fred Phelps ruined it! I hate this name now! No offense to any Freds out there!

I can't believe that nobody on this comment board has mentioned the greatest dancer of the 20th century FRED ASTAIRE!

Can also be a short form of Alfred or Alfredo.

If someone asked me the first person I think of when I hear the name Fred, I would automatically say Fred Jones from Scooby Doo - which isn't necessarily a bad thing! In the tv show, Fred was always good looking and a leader. On the other hand, another Fred kids will think of is Fred Figglehorn, the Youtube character, who is insane.

This name strikes me instantly as masculine with a good athletic and academic mix. It is traditional and I think of an All-American type man or boy, a college baseball or football player.

The name Fred was given to 104 baby boys born in the US in 2012.
Oohvintage  7/19/2013
It's nickname, not a name.
luxsword  4/28/2014
Fred certainly is a name in itself and is not necessarily a nickname.
Docpsych98  5/23/2014
Fred and Frederick has far more stigma than it deserves.

Fred Jones from Scooby-Doo.

Ebenezer Scrooge's nephew (son of his sister Fan), in Charles Dickens' 1843 'A Christmas Carol' and subsequent adaptions.

I hate it, reminds me of Fred Durst and a grumpy old man.

Fred Toyosaburo Korematsu was an American civil rights activist who objected to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Shortly after the Imperial Japanese Navy launched its attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which authorized the removal of individuals of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast from their homes and their mandatory imprisonment in internment camps, but Korematsu instead challenged the orders and became a fugitive.
