Other Origin(s):Spanish, German
Meaning:Noble; Ready; Elf Counsel
Alfie is a male-given name derived from the Old English moniker Aelfraed, meaning "elf counsel." Like most leprechauns and fairies in old folklore, elves were considered supernatural beings with powers we mortals could only dream of. Using their magical abilities to teleport, warp reality, and move objects with the mind, it's no wonder this name is synonymous with wisdom. Alfie may also come from the Spanish moniker Alfonso and the Germanic Adalfuns, meaning "noble" and ready." Although Alfie is the short form of Alfred and Alfonso, this retro nickname also works well alone, giving off spunky vibes for the spirited baby.
