Other Origin(s):Latin
Ursina is a feminine name of Swiss and Latin origin, meaning "bear." Cousin to Uorsin, it's rooted in the Romansh language native to Graubünden, Switzerland. Ursina also derives from Latin _ursa_, as in the constellations Ursa Major and Minor. Many Latin words like _ursa_ weaved their way into Swiss Romansh while the nation was part of the Roman Empire. As your little cub grows into their mighty paws, this name will help keep their fierce side at bay. They'll be tender-hearted and love playing with siblings and their best pals. Your darling Ursina may also be feisty at bath time, but not to worry—it's not furever!
