Rudolph is a nice name, but a bit too foreign sounding. I don't care for the Ruldolph the Red Nosed Reindeer association.

I utterly adore this name! I love everything about it! I will name my child Rudolph if it's a boy. However, the association with the Christmas story does bring prejudice against the name, but nothing too heinous!

The usual nickname for Rudolph is 'Rudy'.

This name in and of itself is ok, but was ABSOLUTELY RUINED by the disgusting man Rudolph Hess. If you don't know who he is, he was one of the most EVIL Nazis ever to exist.

I like this name a lot, I personally think it's a good name, even though it's heavily associated with the Christmas character. But it still makes a nice and refreshing boys name today :)

Well, as the song goes, "all the other reindeer USED TO laugh and call him names"... because now, Rudolph has got all their heads stuffed and mounted on his living room wall.

Once you are an adult, nobody makes jokes about the name anymore (kids make fun of EVERY name). The only REAL problem is that if you are attempting to renew your drivers license or any other official documents around Christmas, nobody believes that you are giving them your real name.

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.

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.

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.  11/3/2007
What a fresh choice for a child today!

A famous bearer of this name is Rudolph Valentino, an early 1920s actor. He played in some of the earliest films like "The Eagle" and "Cobra." He died when he was just 31 years old.

And we can't forget, of course, Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer.
