Rhona

Rhona (f) Apparently the same name, in a slightly
different guise, as Rona, both of which came into use as
Christian names at the beginning of the century. By 1950
both forms were being used to some extent in England
and Wales, but they are basically Scottish names.

The Scottish placename Rona appears to be the source. This probably derives from Norse hraun-ey, ‘rough isle.’
