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

In Nancy Farmer's book "The Sea of Trolls", Olaf was the head of King Ivar the Boneless's berserkers, the wolf-headed men.

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.

This name also exists in the same form in Polish. [noted -ed]

I am very proud to have the name Olaf.

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.

Olaf was the oldest son of King Christian I of Denmark and his wife Dorothea.

Olaf was given to 22 boys in America in 2014, possibly after Olaf in the 2013 movie 'Frozen'.

In my opinion, Olaf sounds very Norwegian.
