What a fresh choice for a child today!

Although this name was quite popular in the United States in the early part of the 20th century, when Rudolph Valentino was a sex-symbol of the 1920s, I don't see a name like Rudolph as a fresh choice for a child today - partly because of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, whose fame eclipsed that of Rudolph Valentino in the latter part of the 20th century and thus caused the name Rudolph to decline in popularity, so that since the early 1990s it has not even featured in the American top 1,000. I think the Italian name Valentino is a better choice for a child today than plain old Rudolph - which I also consider rather ugly.

Well, at least it isn't Adolph, which would remind people of Hitler, but Adolph actually sounds better. This name is simply ugly and old-fashioned, and it makes me think of that annoying Christmas song. Plus, it leads to that awful nickname Rudy. And who are the famous people in history with this name again? I can only think of Rudy Giuliani, and everyone seems to hate him.

I have a sister who's name is Rudolph. She is 21 years of age and never once been made fun of because of her name being what it is, even if it's more commonly used on the male population. She has been teased (not in mockery or patronizing) by close friends and family near the Holidays and was always given fake Christmas antlers to wear - and she loves it, still to this day! She loves her name. We call her Rudy for short.
