Meaning:Ruler's counselor
The boy's name, Reynald, is a gentle reminder that even the mightiest leaders should seek help before making any big decisions. Originating from both French and German roots, Reynald emerged as a popular boy's name during the Middle Ages, boasting close kinship with names such as Renold and Reginald. Meaning "ruler's counselor," it comes from the German terms ragin, being "counsel," and wald signifying "ruler." Reynald finds familiarity with Renaud de Montauban, a famed French knight from the 12th century. Notably recognized for his magical horse, Bayard, capable of carrying him and his three brothers, Reynald parallels Renaud's encounters with Charlemagne. Your little Reynald might not have a unicorn but they are just as capable of making wise choices too.
