ORIGIN AND HISTORY

The name Rhonda has several different origins.

  • Rhonda is most likely of Welsh origin, from rhon meaning "spear" and da meaning "good."[1] The meaning of Rhonda is therefore "good spear" or "good lance."
  • Rhonda may come from Rhondda, the name of a river in Wales which means "noisy."[1]
  • Rhonda may also be a combination of the names Rhoda and Rhona.[1] Rhoda derives from the Greek rhodon, meaning "rose." Rhona may derive from the Gaelic rona, meaning "rough island,"[1] or it may related to the name Rose. Rhoda may also be related to Rhodes, a region of Greece. Therefore, the name might mean "woman of Rhodes."
