User comments for Wilfred
A famous fictional Wilfred is Wilfred of Ivanhoe in the novel by Sir Walter Scott.
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.
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.
Scottish actor David Tennant (born David John McDonald) and his wife Georgia Moffett have a son named Wilfred, who was born 2 May 2013.
Wilfred Mott is the grandfather of Doctor Who companion Donna Noble.
