This is my given name. I really really H-A-T-E this name. Please, never ever get the idea to name your child Ulrike.

Plus, this name is difficult (almost impossible) to pronounce for people whose native language is Portuguese.

Ulrike "Ulli" Goldman of the bands Blutengel and (formerly) Say Y.

The name and nickname have a rather nice ring to them.

I first heard this name after I watched the news about a 14-year old girl who was missing (and later found dead) in Germany in 2000. I forgot her surname though because she is more known by her first name only.

Ulrike Marie Meinhof was a German journalist and mother of two turned left-wing militant. She cofounded the Red Army Faction (Rote Armee Fraktion) in 1970 after having previously worked as a journalist for the monthly left-wing magazine Konkret. She was arrested in 1972, along with Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin, and Jan-Carl Raspe, and eventually charged with numerous murders and the formation of a criminal association. Before the trial concluded, Meinhof died in her cell in 1976, aged 41.
She was portrayed by actress Martina Gedeck in the 2008 German film "The Baader-Meinhof Complex", a critical darling and nominee for Best Foreign Language Film at the 81st Academy Awards.

Ulrike is a character in E. T. A. Hoffmann's novel The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr; she gets caught in a love triangle. It's the best book I've ever read, and I like the name Ulrike!
