Alfredo is a classic favorite. Today it is still a rather popular baby boy name, but to a lesser degree than it was before. The name's popularity jumped from the 1900s up to the 1990s; before that, it was of modest use only. At the peak of its usage in 1993, 0.052% of baby boys were given the name Alfredo. It had a ranking of #267 then. The baby name has experienced a loss in popularity since then. In 2012, its usage was 0.027% and its ranking #492, but it was nonetheless the most popular out of all boy names in its family. In 2012, Alfredo was thrice as popular as the subsequent ranked name, Alfred.
