    Rufus is a magickal pagan name meaning Red and William Rufus was the sacrificial King of England slain in the New Forest in 1100 to make the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Also Rufus Felix is a kind of Lynx. You invoke a magickal destiny using that name.

    It is a nice name but is mostly used nowadays as a pets name.

    It's a dog's name, not a child's name.

    I like the name Rufus. Not too common right now, but still a fine choice.

    I had a pet raccoon named Rufus.

    Really don't like it for a human.

    It doesn’t have a pleasant sound to it . It’s a dog name.  It’s dated.  There are much nicer  names out there

    It all deals with personal preference. I think that the name Rufus sounds more like a dog's name but if you insist to use it consider hyphenating it with another name so you would use say Rufus - Wayne or Rufus - George. Then everyone could just use the hyphenated name instead of Rufus and Rufus could just be the legal name. I believe when the name is hyphenated with another name it sounds a little bit more professional going with Rufus but again it is personal preference so it's up to you and no one else.

      No a hyphen complicates it more. Doesn’t sound professional at all
