Same Name?!--Ronald

Oh, Ronald. He's probably your uncle or grandfather, or maybe even great-grandfather. Thanks to a certain awkward teen wizard, he may be looking good for a comeback, but if not, there are some nice substitutes.

Original Norse form: Ragnvaldr (RAHNGN-valdr)
Scottish form: Ronald (RON-ahld)

Modern forms:
  • Reginald (REJ-in-ahld)--English
  • Reinhold (RINE-holt)--German
  • Reino (RAY-no)--Finnish
  • Renaud (ren-OH)--French
  • Reynaldo (hray-NAL-doh)--Portuguese, Spanish
  • Reynold (REN-old)--English
