Meaning:Stone, rock
Petronila is a super-sweet girl’s name of Spanish origin, borrowed from the Greek name Peter, meaning “stone” or “rock.”. Emeralds, opals, and other precious stones are known throughout history as some of the earth’s finest materials. They’ve also been a major fashion piece since 1600 BCE when the Ancient Greeks, drawn to the dreamy allure of amethysts and aquamarines, began to wear gemstones as jewelry. But who needs diamonds when you’ve got a gorgeous name like Petronila to make your little one glow?
