- Personal experiences with the name Adolfo
Before you give a child this name, look up Aldolfo from the drowsy chaperone, as people may confuse the names and it may embarrass the child.
"Mo-om, why did you name me after that weirdo from that one show."
"Um. Er. Mommy didn't do her research?"
It is still a beautiful name, and it's soft and gentle. The show ruined it, in my opinion.
