Ronja is a Swiss girl’s name of Scandinavian origin, meaning “lake.” The Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren invented this name for the main character of her children’s book, _Ronja Rövardotter,_ derived from Juronjaure, the Sámi name for a lake in northern Sweden. As Switzerland is home to some of the world’s most beautiful lakes, it’s no surprise that this name is popular among Swiss parents, too. Ronja may also be connected to the Hebrew name Roniya, which means “God’s joyful song.” Meanwhile, in Russia, Ronja is a short form of both Veronica, meaning “she who brings victory,” and Roxana, meaning “little star.” From crystalline lakes to sweet music to starry skies, this beautiful name is overflowing with positive meanings for baby to be proud of!
