Meaning & History
Frankish form of Hariulf. Also compare the similar-looking names Garulf and Gerulf, which can easily get confused with this name and vice versa.This name was borne by a 6th-century Frankish nobleman as well as by an obscure saint, who was one of the disciples of the Frankish missionary and saint Marculf (c. 490-558). The disciple in question is better known under the French names Cariulphe and Criou.
