Two famous bearers of this name - British World War I poet Wilfred Owen (1893-1918), who was killed in action, and British radio and television personality Wilfred Pickles (1904-1978), who with his wife Mabel presented the 'Have A Go' radio series of the Forties and Fifties.  8/30/2007
This has to be one of the sweetest name meanings I've ever come across. If only the name weren't so hopelessly clumsy to my ears.

Another variant could be Wylfred, even though it isn't on this site.

Wilfred is the name of an Australian TV show (2007-2010) and its American remake starring Elijah Wood (summer 2011, currently airing on FX). The basic premise is that the main character sees Wilfred, owned by his girlfriend (or attractive neighbor, in the US version), as a man in a dog costume, while everyone else sees Wilfred as a normal dog, and the two strike up a complicated friendship. The owner sometimes calls Wilfred "Wilfy" which is cute but the entire show definitely makes it harder for me consider ever naming a child Wilfred! I like that Jason Gann reprised his Role as Wilfred for the 2011 version. Depending on what kind of comedy you like, you'll either find the show terribly bogan or laugh-out-loud funny.

This is one of my favourite boy's names! So many nickname possibilities such as Will, Wilf and Fred! I can see it on a young boy but also an older man.
