This is a very severe name for a child and a bit old-fashioned in my opinion.

It's more of a grandfather name nowadays, and I can't imagine it on any young guy. I never did like the name anyway, it's quite ugly.

Yuck. This name is ugly, violent, and old-fashioned. It sounds too close to the word "helmet" for me to think it should be a name.

The comments under the name Helmut are pretty harsh! I don't think the name Helmut is ugly. In fact, I really DON'T think it's THAT BAD. I like this name. It's cool, it's different and I think it's NICE. :-)

It is a contraction of two words: held which means hero in German and mut (muth is ancient form) which means courage. Therefore, taken together it means "courageous hero" or "heroic courage".
My 1941 German birth certificate shows Helmut (Helmuth) as does my first Canadian passport.
