Name Root:
*aþalaz *-WULFAZ > Adolf
This name is of Germanic origin, composed of two elements: “*aþalaz” (noble, nobleman, aristocratic, eminent, glorious, excellent) plus “*-wulfaz” (wolf). In turn, the name means “noble wolf.” Adolf also spelled Adolph and, sometimes, Latinized to Adolphus is a given name used in German-speaking countries. Adolf was a common name for newborn babies in German-speaking countries in the 19th century and early 20th-century until the end of World War II. Due to the stigma with the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, the name “Adolf” is now rarely given as a forename to males. The name is still prevalent among now-elderly people. Adolf (or Adolph) (~1255–1298) was the King of Germany from 1292 until 1298. Though his title in his lifetime was Rex Romanorum (King of the Romans), he is usually known as Adolf of Nassau. He was never crowned by the Pope, which would have secured him the Holy Roman Emperor’s title. He was the second in the succession of so-called count-kings.

Color meaning: Black

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
