Meaning:Emerald; Queen of the Heights
Smaranda is a girl’s name of Romanian origin, borrowed from the Romanian expression smarand, meaning “emerald.” While emeralds are found in the ground, the sky’s the limit for this super-sweet moniker. Smaranda Brăescu was a Romanian aviation pioneer known throughout history as the women’s record holder for the highest parachute jump. Not long after, she was crowned “Queen of the Heights.” Choose a name like Smaranda for your little one, and you might just send them soaring.
