'A name of uncertain origin which began to be used in Britain in the 1870s. The name Rona appeared at the same time and it is therefore reasonable to connect the two, especially since both were much used in Scotland. This would make the origin of the name a Scottish place-name, itself derived from Old Norse hraun-ey "rough isle." Miss Withycombe [author of The Oxford Dictionary of English Christian Names] suggests a connection with Welsh Rhonwen, but no Welsh writer on names has ever suggested that Rhona is Welsh. In Britain both forms are used regularly, though not frequently. Rona is usual in the U.S.' (Source: The Facts on File Dictionary of First Names, 1983)
