ADOLF Family History

Recorded in a number of spellings including Adolph, Ahlf, and Alf, patronymics such as Alfs, Adolfsen, Adolfson, diminutives including Adin, Adolfi, Adolfini, Adolthin, and Adolthine, this is a surname of early Germanic origins, which is also recorded in its different forms in Italy and Sweden. It originates from the pre 7th century personal name Adalwulf, which translates literally as "Noble-wolf". The wolf was an animal much respected in ancient times for its cunning and ferocity, and as Wulf and Ulf it is recorded regularly both in its own right as a personal name, and as with this name, as an element in a compound spelling.
