The correct Norwegian pronunciation is "Roo-all." Note that you do NOT say the final "d". In other words, when you say "Roald Dahl" correctly, it rhymes! The Anglicized pronunciation is "Roe-ald".

Roald could be the Norwegian form of Ronald.

This name sounds very strong and powerful. The carrier of this name must fulfill the description, it cannot be carried by a weak man. And the only Roald I know just happens to be very strong and, what to do, stubborn. :)

This is the name of one of the characters in Tamora Pierce's fantasy novels set in the Tortallan world.

While I do like Roald Dahl, the name is so blatantly associated with him that it would be hard to pull off if you're not Norwegian.
