* If, as seems to be generally assvimed. Ralph in its origin is tha
same as Rudolph or Rodolf, it probably signifies "red wolf," (com-
pare the S.mon rud and our rtttUy wiih the Danish and Swedish
r'dd, Dutch rood, and the German roth, all signifying "red.") having
been applied in the first place, perhaps, to some red-haired warrior,
for it is common among all rude nations to compare a warrior to some
animal distinguished for strength, courage, or fierceness. But Ralph
may not improbably as its English spelling and still more that ol
its Latin equivalent (Radulphas) might seem to indicate be derived
from Radulf or Radtilph, meaning " wairior-wolf:" the prefix ra
(cognate with the English ritft or rode) being applied to the bettet
class of warriors, who were usually on horseback: thus, raJ-tnAt, ia
Anglo-Saxon, literally, a "riding youth," signifies a "soldier" ct
" warrior-knight"
