Meaning:little she-bear
Ursula is a feminine name of Latin origin, imploring caution against quick assumptions. Translated from the Latin ursa, Ursela means "little she-bear"—adding a notable vulnerability to an otherwise ferocious being. It's a fitting interpretation, given Ursela's connection to the Greek myth of Callisto and her tryst with the mighty Zeus. The inspirational source of the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, Callisto's story is one of seduction, deception, and tragedy—but also enduring love. After all, it was Zeus's unconditional affection for the beautiful nymph that earned her and their son a place among the stars, forever inspiring countless imaginations. As a little bear, Ursula encourages baby to welcome curiosity and never accept anything at face value.
