Reginald Origin and Meaning

The name Reginald is a boy's name of English origin meaning "counsel power".
Now seen as the chap in the smoking jacket in a 1930s drawing-room comedy, Reginald has actually been on the US popularity list every year since 1880.

A name that was quite common throughout the MIddle Ages, in the modern era Reginald has been associated—in its nickname form—with star athletes like Reggie Jackson and Reggie Bush, plus it's the birth name of Elton John. In literature, Reginald Wilfer is a character in the Dickens novel Our Mutual Friend; Reginald is also the first name of capable and oh-so-proper butler Jeeves in P.G. Wodehouse's books, and, indeed, it still reflects his pompous image.
