Adolf

This name isn’t technically illegal (though “Adolf” and “Hitler” together is), but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a parent who would pick it. Not many would be brave enough to embrace the name of one of history’s most notorious dictators, but the nickname of Dolf or Dolph could still work out. Before WWII, the name was actually fairly common in Germany, as it comes from the Old High German name Athalwolf, meaning “noble wolf.”
