All I can think of is Ronald McDonald.

Ahem, c'mon guys every time we think of the name Ronald, you would instantly think of Ron Weasley from Harry Potter right?! Duh.

Reagan is a very unfortunate association, but Ron is decent. My then mid-20s middle school teacher was Ronald, and he pulled it off despite being super young. It's a usually old-man name but it's definitely salvageable.

This name is not old-fashioned at all. It's great! The nickname Ron is also very pleasant.

In 2018, 63 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Ronald who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 38th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

Very old fashioned, but the nickname Ronnie is cute.

Terrible. Reagan was a awful president, as he funded terrorist groups and fascist regimes such as Pinochet's Chile, and messed up the economy and paved the way for capitalism as it is today, also he is responsible for the extreme bias in news responsible for indoctrinating many. Besides, it rhymes with Donald.

If it wasn't for Ronald McDonald the name would probably be more popular today! A strong handsome name ruined by a clown in yellow pants!

I like this name. I'm going to use it as a middle name for any future sons I have after my Dad, everyone calls my Dad Ron.

Another famous bearer would be Ronald Weasley from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter Series.

There's also Ron Swanson, a character on NBC's Parks and Recreation.

I like Ronald. I prefer Donald (And no I'm not a Trump supporter) but Ronald is a nice name. One of my favorite comedians is called Ronald "Ronnie" Barker.

Ron Howard is a famous director and actor who played Richie Cunningham on the sitcom, Happy Days.

I think this is a very strong masculine name. Many historic figures, athletes and successful people bear this name. It is not a name easily mocked. Aside from Arnold and Donald, no other name rhymes with it.

An ugly old man's name that has the ghastly associations with annoying Ronald McDonald and racist, homophobic prude Ronald Reagan.
TyrannosaurusRegina  1/24/2016
This name is just slightly better than Donald. Possibly because of the nickname Ron, which isn't that bad. However, the name does make me think of Ronald Reagan, who I despise (as a president, at least). The nickname Ron makes me think of Ron Paul, who I also dislike, but the actual name doesn't sound as hideous. Ronald is definitely not a name I like.

I really like how my name means powerful ruler/King's Advisor. My full name is Sir Ronald Hamlet the 4th. (NOT JOKING!)

Ronald was the common name of J. R. R. Tolkien, which was his first middle name. His full name is John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. Tolkiens commonly had many names, so using a middle name as the addressing name was common.

Ronald is my maternal Grandfather's name and my little brother's middle name. I think it's a strong, masculine name that is suitable and fitting for a newborn baby, a little boy, a teenager, a grown man, or an elderly man. This name is very handsome and solid!
Ashleigh Gurlcat 123  2/20/2015
Did anyone ever think of Ronnie James Dio? I only associate this name with him!
― Anonymous User  11/17/2014
I think Ronald is a good solid name.
CathyE521  11/18/2013
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
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 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 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.
Ruta Graveolens  10/26/2012
I like this name, but it reminds me of Ronald McDonald.
Chrila96  10/9/2010
I don't care for this name. It makes me think of Ronald Reagan and Ronald McDonald - not very good namesakes in my opinion.
bananarama  2/17/2010
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 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.
slight night shiver  5/4/2008
I agree that this name is a bit old-fashioned, but there's nothing wrong with that.
reverie  10/26/2007
My brother never liked his name. There weren't a lot of "Ronalds" when he went to school. He goes by the nickname Ron.
Coffeebean  10/17/2007
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.

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.
stormy_lovegood  8/8/2006
Completely old-fashioned, BUT I LIKE IT!

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

Unfortunately, the first image that comes to mind is Ronald McDonald, McDonald's famous clown.
breakofday  12/16/2005
Ronald McDonald is for babies anyway, so don't let him put you off liking the name.

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

This is the name of the 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan (all due respect of his full name.)
Tbird  6/27/2005
Have you ever noticed that Ronald Wilson Reagan has six letters in each of his names? Coincidence?
