The name Rhona ranked 3062nd in popularity for females of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.
Though this name appears on the 1990 U.S. Census lists, it is used by only a small percentage of the general population.
The derivation of this name is not known. Authorities speculate that it could be a feminine form of Ronald or an Anglicized version of the Germanic Raghnaid (meaning ''battle gods''). Another theory identifies it with the Scottish place name Rona, which means ''rough isle.''
For those who like more straightforward solutions to sticky questions, it can be interpreted as Rhonda minus the ''d.''
