Famous bearer Rupert Grint. He's a very talented actor and a natural comedian. He's hilarious!

Rupert Pupkin is the name of Robert DeNiro's insane character in the film The King of Comedy. But isn't there also a bear...

Yes, Rupert Bear is a cartoon character created by Mary Tourtel. Rupert is also the name of Stewie's teddy bear on the TV show Family Guy.

This name has really grown on me! I used to think it was so odd but I now like it so much I think if I have a son in the future I will name him Rupert!

Rupert Penry-Jones is Captain Wentworth in ITV Jane Austen Season's "Persuasion". Talk about PHWOAR!

I know it's German, but this name has always had a very British feel to me. Rupert Grint and Rupert Everett somehow have the ability to make it seem like a very cute name.

This name rather makes me picture an elitist British family member from around the 1950s, but it's always better to have an upper-class sounding name than a lower-class sounding one. A guy with this name won't sound like an insufferable brute. But no, I don't like the sound, and any nicknames are out of the question.

I like this name; it can bring to mind both the image of a cute young boy and a strong, settled man. I think it's important for a name to fit throughout your life, so I think it makes a good name. If you don't like it as a first name, it can always work as a middle name.

Could easily be confused with the more common Robert.

Rupert Murdoch is a businessman and media mogul. However, due to his womanizing nature, he has kind of ruined the name for me.

Like half the people who shared info, I'll just say that I love Rupert Grint and that the name's starting to grow on me (though I'll always think of it as a redhead name). It's German, but it sounds very English to me.

Rupert Charles Wulsten Bunny (1864-1947) was an Australian painter.

I think Rupert is a pretentious name. It screams snobby British man.
bananarama  3/12/2012
Bleh. This is a name that snobby British parents like to use on their sons. Plus I really despise Rupert Grint and Rupert Murdoch.
Bonquiqui  6/19/2012
Rupert sounds very characteristically upscale British, like Nigel or Winston. An American child named Rupert would probably get a few funny looks. It's a really cute yet strong name, though. I'd use it for a pet in a heartbeat, and possibly as a middle name for a son.

Rupert Grint; most notable for portraying the role of Ronald Weasley in the Harry Potter film series.

English actor Rupert Friend is a famous bearer.

I think this is a very handsome & classy name. I love the name Rupert so much! :DD I don't think it sounds THAT snobby as some of the commenters make it out to be, to be honest. I always think of Rupert Bear, who sadly seems forgotten these days.

The name Rupert was given to 22 boys born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/22/2016
I quite like Rupert although it does make me think of the Bear and the Murdoch. But I still like the name.
Mr.Cheese  7/12/2016
I think Rupert is a sweeter, more refined version of the over-used Robert. My mother was going to call me Rupert if I was a boy!

Rupert is an upper-class name in England, especially amongst the English aristocracy. But in Germany it is used mostly in the south-east of Germany and Austria, more precisely in Bavaria and Salzburg. Rupert Stadler, the CEO of Audi AG (car maker in Ingolstadt) is today the most prominent bearer of this name.
