Diminutive of Ralph

Ralphie Origin and Meaning

The name Ralphie is boy's name meaning "wolf-counsel".
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, though it doesn't quite qualify as a Christmas baby name.
