Happy Name Day, Adolf! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Adolf.  Happy name day, Adolf!
The name Adolf is of Old German origin and means "noble, majestic wolf".  The Latin form Adolphus arrived in Britain in the mid 19th century, having been a German and Swedish royal name as well as a saint's name.  The name had become less popular since the infamous Adolf Hitler and World War II.
