From Ronald Reagan to Ronald McDonald, this is one likeable name. However, in recent decades, this timeless boy's name has faded from the popularity list. At its peak, Ronald was most popular with American-based parents during the 1930s and 40s with cute nicknames Ron and Ronnie being used. However, thanks to the wizarding world, Ronald may just be making a comeback. Harry Potter’s best friend Ronald Weasley has brought new life and meaning to the name. It may just be time for the Ronald revolution!
