  • "why they keep asking the meaning of the name bruno" May. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Went out of fashion around the middle of the 20th century when it became associated in the mid-Thirties with the infamous Lindbergh baby killer Bruno Richard Hauptmann (previously working as a carpenter - and was, of course, an illegal immigrant from Germany in the Roaring Twenties) who was executed in 1936 for committing the "Crime Of The Century" - yet in recent decades there have been arguments that Hauptmann was not the killer but the innocent victim of a frame-up, and it was such a burden for Hauptmann's widow Anna, a former New York waitress, to carry, all the way until her own death in 1994 when she was now a nonogenerian (she had always maintained that her husband, whom she had always called "Richard", was innocent and was one of few people who stood by him throughout the "Trial Of The Century" in 1935). Yet these days a name like Bruno appears to be overcoming those somewhat old associations to once more climb the American charts in the way Anna has done for girls, being even less associated than Bruno with them associations from long ago (even though Anna was Hauptmann's wife one minute and his widow the next)."
