    Meaning WITH History
    Scottish form of RAGNVALDR, a name introduced to Scotland by Scandinavian settlers and invaders. It became popular outside Scotland during the 20th century. A famous bearer was American actor and President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004).
    In the Top 10 in the late 1930s through the mid-1940s, the name came to be strongly associated with President Reagan, along with his nicknames, Ron and Ronnie—as well as with the McDonald franchise mascot. A more youthful bearer is the likable character Ron Wesley in the Harry Potter series. In the early days of Hollywood, Ronald Colman was a dashing matinee idol.

    It was the Vikings who brought the name to England and Scotland. In the US, it first appeared on the charts in 1883, moving up to the Top 20 from the 1930s to the 1950s.
    RAGNVALDR    Ancient Scandinavian
    Old Norse name composed of the elements regin "advice, counsel" and valdr "power, ruler" (making it a cognate of REYNOLD).
    REYNOLD    English
    From the Germanic name Raginald, composed of the elements ragin "advice" and wald "rule". The Normans (who used forms like Reinald or Reinold) brought the name to Britain, where it reinforced rare Old English and Norse cognates already in existence. It was common during the Middle Ages, but became more rare after the 15th century.
