Name Meaning

Contracted version of an old Germanic personal name derived from hrōd ‘fame’ + wulf ‘wolf’. This is found in Old Norse as Hrólfr. As an English given name, it represents in part the survival of a form imported by the Normans, in part a much more recent (19th-century) importation of the modern German name. See also Rudolf .
