Usage notes[edit]

Adolf had begun to become less common by the start of the 20th century. It saw a brief rise in popularity, beginning in 1933 and ending in 1942. After 1945, it became quite rare. In 2006, only 1 out of 27 700 babies was given the name Adolf. Nonetheless, its earlier commonness meant that there were still about 75 000 (mostly elderly) Germans named Adolf as of 1998. Noticeably fewer Adolfs live in the area of the former DDR compared to other areas of Germany.
