I don't think so. Randalf means "shield-wolf". There doesn't seem to be a Spanish equivalent.

By the way, even in some English-speaking countries, they can't believe we name our children "Randy". That word has other connotations in Great Britain and New Zealand.

C'mon! Randolfo? Or Gandolfo? Hang on, let me check my lil' dictionary. Nah . . . nuthin' . . . I suggest you google a Mexcian or Spanish phonebook on Google (Mexico DF or Madrid) and see how many Randolphos you find. Good luck!

P.S. Except for Geraldo, I can't find 'nuthin' for "Gary".

I can't think of one, but I think Gary had a good suggestion that sounds similar (i.e., Randolfo). Your friend probably could just go by Randy. I have a Venezuelan friend named Rodney so, it might not seem all that out-of-place.

By the way, my friend pronounces his name according to the Spanish grammar/pronunciation rules; so, it's like rrod NEY (a rolled "r", emphasis on NEY; Spanish vowel sounds).

One other suggestion is to go by another name in Spanish that's similar or starts with the same letter, like Raúl.
