"Even if this name is spelt Adolph, the American English way, or in the French way as Adolphe (as in the actor Adolphe Menjou), it is still not likely to overcome them terrible Hitler associations even if some good things came out of Hitler's reign of terror in the late 20th century - for instance the Seventies Swedish pop group Abba, in which one of the two female members, the red-haired Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad, was the illegitemate daughter of one of Hitler's hench-men and an unmarried Norwegian mother (Frida was to be brought up in Sweden by her grandmother after her mother died and her father disappeared from her life for a number of years - despite a temporary reunion between dad and daughter in 1977 when Abba were now household names)."

"Adolph Zukor, Adolph Green, and Adolph "Chico" Marx were all nice Jewish boys, unlike that nasty gentile in the Old World that was surnamed Hitler...and he RUINED this name, big time!" Feb. 5, 2019:
"Even though it's spelt "Adolph" rather than "Adolf", it doesn't lessen its association with Hitler, even 69 years after WW2's end. It seems as if the only notable bearer of this name in a positive light is the American lyricist Adolph Green - who, BTW, is Jewish (or at least he was till he died in 2002 aged 88). Just what would Hitler have thought of that?" Jun. 16, 2014:
