    Name Meaning

    English: of Norman origin, from the Middle English and Anglo-Norman French personal name Rolf, Roulf, Rou, Roul, Rouf, Rof. Its usual derivation is from Old Norse Hrólfr, Rolf, from ancient Germanic hrōd ‘fame, renown’ + wulf ‘wolf’, and occasionally from ancient Germanic Rodulf, of the same origin as Hrólfr (earlier Hróthúlfr) but in a West Frankish form, which the Scandinavian Normans occasionally used. The name was also common in Normandy where it became Old French Roul, Rou, often Latinized as Rollo. See Ralph and compare Rowe , Dow , and Rowson .
