No, the name comes from the 1942 Duck cartoon, "Donald Gets Drafted".
Quoting from "Donald Duck - 50 Happy Years of Frustration",
"In "Donald Gets Drafted" (1942) the inevitable happens. Donald Fauntleroy
Duck receives a greeting (number 13) from Uncle Sam on April 1, 1942."
Donald's middle name is about as official as anything about the Ducks is.
