It's my middle name. My name is William Dudley Barrow IV (the fourth) I hate it when I was little my brother would call me "Dudley the dud". I've thought of changing it but it would hurt my dad so I'm stuck with it.

Cary Grant played the angel Dudley in The Bishop's Wife (1947). The name was very dapper on him, I think.

My mother absolutely loved this name for a boy. I don't see the appeal at all... who wants "dud" in their name? It also sounds very... plump.

As a Harry Potter-fan, I don't like that name. Always reminds me of Dudley Dursley, a pathetic, spoiled bully. I doubt that name will be popular, while the Harry Potter-series still are really popular.

Does no one else remember Dudley the Dragon? I know he wasn't that popular, but still. He had his pictures on shoes!

Awful. Just awful. The guy would be called Dud. The name sounds utterly silly.

If I'll ever have a dog, I would call it Dudley! I think it's a perfect name for a cute, cuddly, little doggy!

One famous bearer of this name is Dudley Dursley from J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He's a spoiled, rotten person.
