  • "It's so cute. Will and Fred/Freddie are both nicknames that modernize the name a bit. I like it in full too though. Wilfred has about the best meaning of any name I've heard, "desires peace". If you believe in the 100 year rule it should be fresh in the US just about now." May. 23, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's my name and has been a curse, especially in childhood. People can't spell or pronounce it properly. They will often pronounce it as "Wilferd" or change it to "Wilford", both of which I hate. Even my brother-in-law usually mispronounces it! Some people will change it to "Wilfredo", which I don't mind too much. My first grade teacher insisted that I didn't know my own name and that it must be "William"."

  • "Sounds too much like Wilbur and they're both terminally outdated." May. 19, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "In England this is most often associated with the World War I poet Wilfred Owen (1893-1918), who was killed in action, and the comedian Wilfred Pickles (1904-1978), who in the Fifties fronted the 'Have A Go' series on the radio. The name sounds very much dated these days, but it was popular a century ago." Jun. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate
