Rudy is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Rudy.

The name Rudy is a boy's name of German origin meaning "famous wolf". Rudy has a bit of style currency, thanks to the fact that Jude Law used it for his son. It has been consistently in the Top 1000 for as long as Social Security records have been tallied, as opposed to parent name Rudolph, which, perhaps due to the reindeer, hasn't been heard from in some time. Some people still remember Rudy as a young girl character on The Cosby Show; it appeared again on The Practice, where Judge Rudy Fox was a female. The titular protagonist of the 1993 film Rudy was a male.
