In Epictetus’ “Dissertationes ab Arriano digestae” (Book 1 chapter 17 section 12 line 3) we read ‘ἀρχὴ παιδεύσεως ἡ τῶν ὀνομάτων ἐπίσκεψις’ that translates to: “The path of wisdom starts with contemplating the meaning of names”.
So, if we want to examine the true nature of the new POTUS we must examine the etymology of his name. As soon as we do that we’ll understand
a) The deepness and accuracy of the ancient Greek philosophy
b) The tremendous burden of the magnificent destiny that Mr Trump has to bare.
Donald = "world-ruler" or "world-wielder"!
The 'Donald' entry in Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald) reveals the following
Donald is a masculine given name derived fromthe Gaelic name Domhnall. This comes from the Proto-Celtic *Dumno-ualos ("world-ruler" or "world-wielder"). The final -d in Donald is partly derived from a misinterpretation of the Gaelic pronunciation by English-speakers, and partly associated with the spelling of similar-sounding Germanic names, such as Ronald. A short form of Donald is Don. Pet forms of Donald include Donnie and Donny. The feminine given name Donella is derived from Donald.
Donald has cognates in other Celtic languages: Modern Irish Dónal (anglicised as Donal and Donall); Scottish Gaelic Dòmhnall, Domhnull and Dòmhnull; Welsh Dyfnwal and Cumbric Dumnagual. Although the feminine given name Donna is sometimes used as a feminine form of Donald, the names are not etymologically related.
