Gender: M Meaning of Ralphie: "wolf-counsel" Origin of Ralphie: Diminutive of Ralph

Ralphie is one of those short forms that have been out of style for so long it just might have a chance of coming back in, if you can get past seeing it as a desperate attempt to cute-ify a stodgy old man's name.

Many would associate it with the boy in A Christmas Story.
