Donald is the Anglicized form of Scottish name ‘Domhnall’, from the words meaning ‘world’ and ‘rule’. The ‘d’ at the end of the name Ronald comes from an English misinterpretation fueled by German names such as ‘Ronald’. Disney’s Donald Duck is a famous bearer of this name, along with Donald Trump (entrepreneur).
