    Wulfric? Opinions please!

    My husband and I really want to name our next son after Ulrich (Huldrych) Zwingli, but the problem is that I'm not a huge fan of the name Ulrich.
    We thought about Huldrych/Hulderic....but then I came across the name Wulfric which is an older form of Ulric.

    Now I did some research and Ulrich, Hulderic, Ulric and Wulfric all seem connected in the same naming family. My question is do you agree with me that they are connected or do you think Wulfric is too much of a stretch from Ulrich?

    I think Wulfric isn't too much of a stretch at all. It sounds like a really cool name and it sounds great with your first sons name!

    I immediately think of Dumbledore when I see that name.

    I would never use it personally, a little bit too out there for me, but I do think it's kind of cute.

    I've never read or seen Harry Potter so that association doesn't bother me.
    Thank you for your input!
    Am I on track with the history of Wulfric?

    Yes it seems you're right according to behindthename Wulfric is an old English form of Ulric.
