Origin and Meaning

1) Fantasy name from the children's book 'Ronja Rövardotter' (1981; English title: 'Ronia, the Robber's daughter') by the Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, who got the idea for that name searching through a map of northern Scandinavia finding a lake with the Sami name Juronjaure. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

Another theory is that Astrid Lindgren got the idea for the name from a Laplander's hut named Anironiarekåtan

2) Ronja is also a Russian pet form of Veronica, but almost nobody was named Ronja in the Nordic countries before 1981. [2] [1] [3]
