Meaning: Ruler of Thunder Origin: Swedish
The meaning of the name Thorald is “Ruler of Thunder” or “Thor Ruler”. A combination of ÞOR and VALD. This old Swedish/Norse name evokes images of legendary heroes, and times that were simpler.
A straightforward nickname could be Thor, but also Tofi/Tovi, which is a Norse nickname given to those with the name prefix ‘Thor’ which also ends in a f/v-/w syllable.
Thorald reminds me of Ronald but with a more authoritive feel. It also blends well with Morris, Thames and Thaddeus.
