This is also the name of the bad guy in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Count Olaf.

This name reminds me of pure evil because of Count Olaf in the Series of Unfortunate Events. I never liked it anyways, so I don't mind.

The first time I heard this name was in A Series of Unfortunate Events and I thought Snicket made it up, it was so goofy sounding.

My assosiation of this name with Count Olaf makes it funny to me for some reason. I don't know why, as Count Olaf isn't a funny character. But it makes me laugh. There's just something inherently goofy about this name (no offense to anyone named Olaf).

Two words: Count Olaf. This association with the name makes it rather unappealing to me.

Count Olaf is a fun but sadistic character, and the name sounds more like a surname, so I wouldn't use this name.

I strongly associate this name with some evil antagonist, even without the infamous Series of Unfortunate Events. Olaf honestly sounds like some stereotypical name for perhaps numerous character villains.

I can't hear this name without thinking of the annoying talking snowman from Frozen, Olaf. Just doesn't appeal to me.
