It does sound old and grumpy indeed, but in a funny and harmless way. It also reminds me of almonds.

Arnold is a family name for me. Every year we attend the Arnold Family Reunion at a South Carolina State Park. My new grandson is not only an Arnold descendent but is an Arnaud! His proud papa is the Arnaud, so he has a double dose of the Eagle heritage.

As much as I dislike Arnold Schwarzenegger and Benedict Arnold, I can't help but love the meaning of this name. Eagle power. Man that's badass. Plus Hey Arnold! Was one of my favorite shows growing up.

My name is Arnold and I'm pretty sure it does mean eagle power or something similar because I remember getting a book mark with my name and meaning on it when I was like 10 or 12 (I'm 32 now) and it said "Strong as an Eagle".

I don't like any of the names that end in ld - Arnold, Ronald or Donald. They sound wimpy and old fashioned. Also, unfortunately too many of they have been associated with cartoon characters.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has utterly ruined this name for me. He's the only Arnold I can think of, so the name is ruined. I hate the silly nickname Arnie too.

Site says from German, 'eagle' -- RIGHT. Plus 'wald' for power. -- WRONG. Wald in German means forest or woods. Arnwald means eagle woods. There are places in Germany and Austria with exactly this name.

Apart from the Terminator himself, known for catchphrases such as "Hasta la vista, baby" and "I'll be back", the name itself (in England, at least) otherwise reminds me of a marrow-loving old grandad with a pipe in his mouth and going to the Salvation Army somewhere in England.

It is also the name of English playwright and actor Arnold Ridley (1896-1984), who played Pte. Godfrey in Dad's Army.
