Meaning & Origins

From a Norman French name, Raulf, a contracted form of the Germanic personal name Radulf, derived from rād ‘counsel’ + wulf ‘wolf’. The spelling with -ph is due to classical influence in the 18th century.
193rd in the U.S.
Southern Italian: from garofalo ‘carnation’, from Greek karyophyllon, standard modern Italian garofano. Southern Italian Greek has the more conservative karofaddho; the standard modern Greek form is garifalo. This is presumably a nickname for one who habitually sported a carnation, a topographic name for someone who lived where carnations grew, or a metonymic occupational name for a grower or seller of these flowers. De Felice notes that the Calabrese and Sicilian dialect forms, garofalu and garofolo, denote other species of plant, as well as a whirlwind or vortex, senses which could also have contributed to the surname.
6,092nd in the U.S.
