This is the name of the 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan (all due respect of his full name.)

Have you ever noticed that Ronald Wilson Reagan has six letters in each of his names? Coincidence?

Another famous bearer of this name is Ronald Weasley, Harry Potter's best mate!

Unfortunately, the first image that comes to mind is Ronald McDonald, McDonald's famous clown.

Ronald McDonald is for babies anyway, so don't let him put you off liking the name.

Ronald is the first R in J.R.R. Tolkien (John Ronald Reuel).

Completely old-fashioned, BUT I LIKE IT!

Ronald Weasley is a great character, and only adds to my liking of the name. I love all the Weasley boys' names. Ron is my 2nd favorite, and 3rd name for a boy.

You wouldn't expect this name to have a fantasy story sort of feel to it, except that the first things I think of, even before Ronald McDonald, are Ronald Weasley and John Ronald Reuel Tolkien.

My brother never liked his name. There weren't a lot of "Ronalds" when he went to school. He goes by the nickname Ron.

I agree that this name is a bit old-fashioned, but there's nothing wrong with that.

I can't say any positive things about this name, but hey, this is the comments section, and it's for honest opinions, right? First of all, it's harsh-sounding name. Secondly, it sounds quite old-fashioned by now. And, most importantly, it reminds me of Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul.

I'd rather think of Ron Weasley (not going to lie, he's my third favorite Harry Potter character) than Ronald Reagan. His policies make me sick.

Although, I heard some really cool stories about when he was a teenager. The local hotel wouldn't allow anyone but whites to stay there, so he would take them to his house and his parents would let them stay the night and have breakfast. I suppose it goes to show that despite someone's politics, they can (at one point) be a good person.

I don't care for this name. It makes me think of Ronald Reagan and Ronald McDonald - not very good namesakes in my opinion.

I like this name, but it reminds me of Ronald McDonald.
-- Chrila96  10/9/2010
This is my brother's name so I like it. It has a mature, old-fashioned, classic feel to it. It fits my brother to a tee, though he has gone by Ronnie all his life.

This name is also used in The Netherlands, where it is a top 1000 name. The name was at an all-time high in 1964, in which year 2308 little Ronalds were born. It really is a '60s name here, because it was quite popular during the entire decade - after which the name steadily declined and eventually fell out of favour completely. Less than 10 Ronalds were born each year in the past 5 years, so the name is quite dated now.

The Dutch pronunciation of the name is: RO-nahld.

A famous bearer of this name is Ronald de Boer (b. 1970), a Dutch soccer player who is now retired.

This name means a lot to me.
Ronald was my grandfather's name, and he died when I was six. It is the middle name of my favorite author, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the name of my favorite president, Ronald Reagan.
It's also the name of a very wonderful charity home, The Ronald McDonald House, which housed my family for free when I was hospitalized.
I very much like this name.

This is an ok name, but I can't really say I'm a big fan of Ronald or Donald. I do, however, really like the nicknames Ron and Don.
-- Oohvintage  4/29/2013
I think Ronald is a good solid name.
-- CathyE521  11/18/2013
Did anyone ever think of Ronnie James Dio? I only associate this name with him!
