RUDOLF.  German.  It is the same as Anglo-Saxon Hrothwulf (q.v.), and Old Norse Hrólfr (q.v.), meaning "famous wolf."  Usage: America, Austria, Germany, Holland, Russia (Рудо́льф), Switzerland.
    Rudolf Dreikurs (d. 1972), was an American psychiatrist.  Rudolf Otto (d. 1937), was a German Lutheran theologian.  Rudolf Khametovich Nureyev (d. 1993), was a Russian ballet dancer who defected to America. (Wiki)

... the German form, Rudolf, is chiefly from a sainted Karling prince, who was bishop of Bourges, and from whom Rudolf of Hapsburg must have derived it.  From him it became imperial, and other countries received it... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
