Never have I known someone to fit the meaning of their name as my grandad (Donald) did his! This name is wonderful!

If you're going to give your child a name that means "ruler of the world," they're gonna have to be pretty conceited when they grow up.

When I hear this name, I can't help but think of a bumbling, not so intelligent person, but the meaning of this name, "ruler of the world" is quite the opposite of my impression.

A famous bearer is Australian cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman.

A couple of unfortunate associations would make me hesitant to use this name for a child. The lisping and abrasive Donald Duck is fairly bad; but the real clincher is the comedy song 'Donald, Where's Yer Troosers?'. I can just imagine the endless embarrassment the poor kid would have to suffer from "witty" people singing choice lines from this song everywhere he goes. If I lived in a part of the world where this song was unknown, this would be near the top of my list of names as otherwise I like it very much.

It was Kurt Cobain's middle name.

I don't like this name. It makes me think of that selfish jerk Donald Trump.
-- bananarama  8/8/2008
It's also used in Poland, although rarely.
-- Nayanne  3/14/2009
Well - now that I see the meaning of the name, the fact that Mr. Trump has had such a huge success doesn't seem so odd!

I can't believe that people would be put off a name by cartoon characters and celebs, lol! Donald is a really great name. I think the meaning fits in my mind what I imagine a Donald to be like.

I think it's interesting that this name is really only used in America. You'd be hard pressed to find a Donald anywhere else.
-- SamBelden  9/9/2011
According to, there are twenty-three people in the U.S. named Donald Duck!

(I knew of one that was older than the character. Perhaps at least some of these are.)
-- Kosta  10/7/2011
This name just doesn't do it for me because of the association with the Donald Duck cartoon character.
-- GibsonGirl  11/30/2011
This has got to be the most capitalistic name ever. That said, for good or for ill, its meaning is indeed not too far off the mark.

Donald Tusk (2007) is, as of 2012, the Prime Minister of Poland. And yes, his non-fans get a lot of laughs from his first name (especially since his political opponent has the last name Kaczyński, which comes from the word kaczka, "duck").
-- judgedeadd  7/1/2013
A very old name. Donald duck comes to mind haha, so sorry no, never.
-- Anonymous User  3/3/2014
Honestly, Donald Duck and Trump don't ruin this name for me, I just think it's a hideous name.
-- Ali Hassan  7/9/2014
I originally hated this name (as shown by my comment above), but now I love it for some reason. I think it's great, vintage, and strong with a very good meaning also.
-- Ali Hassan  8/15/2014
I think this is a cute name for a guy.
