It was a bit of a pain actually. It'seems a lot of Ralphs in the media are animals, weirdo's or losers. No idea why I was called Ralph. But although I really don't like it, I would never change it, as thats my name. Thats a Ralph for you!!!

2/3/2023 5:01:40 PM me, never forget my name...unique in a very strange way, connetations of middle class respectability, and via the entertaI'ment industry now usually means geeky, dark, homosexual, me its just a Anglo Saxon version of Wolf..(wise wolf).....and its Ralph, as in ralph malph, not Rolf as in Rolf Harris, and most definately not it is spelt. Name your son with a hint of uniqueness

My name is Ralph and to be honest, I love it. I think it works well with my confident personality and i've never really had any nick names as people just know me as Ralph or Ralphy. I sometimes introduce myself as Ralphy now, almost subconsciously as I get called it alot. Yea sure there is the odd Bozo in the media called Ralph but I think the'subtle coolness of the name outshines that completely. Just think, Ralph Lauren is one of the coolest, most successful guys in the fashion industry! Also, I'd like to call a son Ralph if I ever have one!

I was named after my grandfather. The third Ralph to be exact. Everyone called me by my shortened middle name Larry. My grandfather was the only person to call me Ralph, and even'though he's gone, I can still hear his voice. He made me feel special, like it was our members only club. Good times

My name is Ralph and I quite like it. However I am a pretty substantial guy and people who abuse it generally don't do it again. I would hate to have the name if I could not look after myself though. Especially during the'school years.

Im the 3rd Ralph in my family and was called Rafe or Ralphie sometimes as a kid.Growing up the'show Happy Days was on and Ralph Malph really made having the name hard. Till this day I still get called Ralphie by people close to me,but what can you do.

This is my husband's name and though I tend to n't be fond of that type of name, It's a good one. People still ask him where is other brother Darryl is, if you can beli've that.The thing with this name is the'spelling, there are a hundred ways to spell it and if you don't like any of them just make an'ther one up, that's what everyone else does anyway.

some people spell my name this way: ralf, or go to the extreme and say walphie. i have learned to put up with it & laugh with them. its better than getting angry & saying something you may regret.

I am a Ralph and I DO NOT like it,,,for all the reasons above in this thread,,,, just the pronounciation of it difficult for people to get it right, which requires at least 2 efforts to get it,,,,,but I'made sure non of my kids were given it,,,cheers Ralph

I'm a Ralph too - It's good, as it is unusal in the UK, so You're never a 'Big' Mike or a 'Fat' Dave etc. Just 'Ralph'. Shame about the vomIt'slang, but hey, you can't have enerything.

Ralph is my name. In my experience most people have had no trouble spelling it correctly. Nor have I'met many, if any, people who could not pronounce it easily. In general, though, i've found my name to be a popular object of riducule, in light of the numerous references to ridiculous television characters (sharing my name) of days past. But I like my name. =)

My name is Ralph or Ralphie to my closest friends.My mom and dad named me after a deceased loved on who was particularly good.I never realized the virtuous importance of the name till recently.My mom said it was the first name of God the one and only creator.I only wish i could live up to the name.Then again why not exceed the name? lol

My son is called Ralph, pronounced Rafe, we as a family adore the name. It has caused some confusion with people regarding its spelling and pronunciation. It doesn't matter how many times I explain they still get it wrong, as long as his family and friends know then what does it matter. He is a handsome boy with a unique name and he'll pull it off.

Ralph, Ralph is my name too. I'm happy with it. The thing is that I live in Brazil, here people pronounce it in an acceptable way, but they spell it very very bad. Anyway, I like my name... :-)

My dog is called Ralph and I like him greatly so I was just searching the net to find out what his name meant when I came across this site. It quite inter'sting but I think you need to have what this name means on here. Ralph means: Wolf Counselor. OK Thanks! Sincerely, Someone

My name is Ralph and It's not that popular this day & age.Ralph or Ralphie is a rare name.People consider it the best name in the world.L

My husband's name is Ralph, as well as my brother-in-law. They are 46 and 56. I think, despite the connection to vomIt'slang, it is a strong masculine name that has endured so long that there are politicians, actors, writers, poets, cartoons, and other famous people to look up to with the name. I think it would be a great name to bring back, and I am in fact trying to feminize it without straying to far from it for our next baby.
