Good and strong name, really masculine and with class! Not anymore used often as it was many decades ago, now it's a rare name, not much used. It feels a little bit like an older male name, but I like this name, because Alfred has quality and charm also.

It’s a very old name, but that doesn’t stop it from being amazing! Alfred will suit any age and a cute nickname for Alfred is Alfie.

Alfred is absolutely my favourite male name of all time. I love it so much! However, I don't think it should regain popularity. It's an old-fashioned name that is better if left in the past. This is just my personal opinion anyway. You decide!

It’s not a good name, it’s a bad bad name despite the feel of the name and its portrayal. Alfred is a German name.
Jace Hendrix  5/12/2020
I love this name!
Some people may consider it old-man-ish, but I definitely don’t think so! If I was born a boy, I would have been called Alfred and I wouldn’t have thought my name was boring or dated at all! The very thought!
I like quite a few of the diminutives for Alfred. My favorite is Alfie, and I also like Freddie and Freddy. Fred is OK, too, but not the diminutive I would pick out of all of them. (Obviously the one I would pick is Alfie!)

I can’t imagine an American with this name who's under 70. Any boy would get teased for having an old man’s name. I don’t even think it’s a good name. Sounds too much like a last name. It makes me think of a snobby, rich, British man who hates talking to anyone of a lesser class.

Alfred is considered a very old, out-dated name in the U.S. Geeky, dorky, unattractive.

Admittedly, it's a nice name. I like the nickname Freddy, a little.
It's unfortunate it went out of style, I imagine it could make a comeback (then people would start spelling it strangely, though... like Alfryd or Elfred. Goodness!)
It's a fun name that I think can fit any personality.

I am mixed with this name, I like it, but I don't at the same time. I would name a dog this, but not a boy.

I love this name. Mainly because of the personification of America from Hetalia (best anime ever!) and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

OH MY FREAKING GOSH! I wouldn't expect to see anything of Hetalia in here! Yes, Alfred is an awesome name. It sounds like a high school jockey or a cool kid, it has its own uniqueness to it.

Love it! This name would honor relatives Albert and Frederick, and would be perfect for a future boy I might have. The nickname Alfie is adorable too, and Alfred sounds like a good name for a boy to grow into. Yes to this type of "old man" names that are ready to be revived for the next generation!

This name has grown on me and now I quite like it. Although I don't like any of the nicknames for Alfred, it would be a good name for a boy of any age. This name brings to mind a strong, reliable guy.
autumn23  4/23/2013
This name is seriously adorable. I don't know why, but to me it just is. For a little boy, I think the nicknames Alfie or Freddie are more fitting and still cute, but overall Alfred is an awesome name! It has actual history to it too, unlike all these trendy, made up names.

I really like this name because it has a lot of history to it and sounds regal and imposing, but because of those same reasons, it seems like a lot for a kid to bear. It's hard to imagine this name on anyone younger than 40 for me.

I usually think of "Alfred" the butler from the movie/tv show BATMAN. Alfred was the butler to "Bruce Wayne", aka "Batman". Batman was very rich and had a butler named Alfred, so that's one reason for me to like this name. Fred can be a good alternative to Al/Alfred.

Alfred is the worst name you could get, in my opinion:
There's that nasty song about a nerd called Al. While it's very funny, it doesn't leave you a good impression. Then there's that mean nickname Alfredo. And last, it sounds bad.

Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic is easily the best known of all novelty singers. He writes parodies of popular songs and composes silly original tunes, most of which are accompanied by, among other instruments, his accordion. Weird Al got his start on the Dr. Demento Show, a radio program devoted to odd songs, and since 1983, he has released twelve albums. He also had his own television show (creatively titled "The Weird Al Show") on CBS from 1997 to 1998, and starred in the cult classic film UHF in 1989.
