I love the name Rufus! It is one of my favourite names. I think Rufus Aaron is a great combination. However, when I mentioned to my friends that I liked this name, they laughed and said it reminded them of a dog! I thought that was mean because this name is fantastic!

This name is just so bad. It has always been one of the worst names ever to me. I'd HATE it if my name was Rufus.

I'm passionately and immutably enamored of Rufus. ♥

This has to be one of the worst names ever. Sounds ridiculous. The reason that it's popular as a dog's name must be because it sounds like a dog's bark. ROOF-us.

Rhymes with 'doofus', and I bet other kids would realize that very quickly. This is just a hideous name. I wouldn't recommend it to be used on a dog, let alone a person.
-- slight night shiver  5/5/2008
Doofus is such an outdated 80s insult. No one uses it anymore. That said, I have always loved this name because it sounds very strong.

I really wish people wouldn't have started using this on dogs! This is a Saints name people! It is a classic, yet seems very modern to me. I can picture a modern day British actor. Actually I think there is a British actor with this name, but I can't remember his last name. I wouldn't use it because of the dog association, and I'm just not that bold, and my husband is even less bold than I am. But for the gutsy person, this name rocks!

I think this is a really nice name, and I think it's definitely usable. For me, it has no dog connotations whatsoever, and I can see this name on a young child, an adult and an old man - I can just see it being used on any age, although I wouldn't use it as a first name as it's a bit too rare for my tastes, but I would consider using it as a middle name. :)

Rufus Butterworth, the taxidriver and co-owner of Bert's diner from The Good Guys, played by Bob Denver.

Rufus is very canine-esque and rhymes with doofus. It's one of the worst names I can imagine because it's pretentious and nerdy at the same time.

This name makes me think of dogs. It also sounds very British to me. And what do you know, it's quite popular in Britain! It's not the worst name out there, I mean Rex and Bella are used on people and they're both very popular dog names. I think Rufus is a lot cuter than Rupert, I think it could grow on me over time :-)

Love it. It's a masculine, no-nonsense name that ages well with you.
