Meaning:Song; Joy; Little seal
A lyrical boy’s name of Hebrew origin, Ronen means “song” or “joy.” This delightful meaning may inspire baby to pursue a life of music or at least put the pressure on to sing on key. Ronen not only has a melodious meaning but a beautiful yet commanding sound that rolls easily off the tongue. It may remind some of the Irish Ronan and could even be an alternate spelling of this masculine name. Meaning “little seal,” Ronan is said to be the son of the Selkie, a mysterious woman who could transform into a seal. Together, “song” and “little seal” tell a powerful story—or song of the sea—to which baby Ronen will always know the melody.
