Úna - Meaning of Úna

What does Úna mean?

[ syll. na- ] The baby girl name Úna is used mostly in Irish and Scottish. Its language of origin is Celtic. The name is of obscure derivation; it could be from 'úna' or else from 'uan'. Una is the Anglicized form of the name, and it is often associated with the Latin 'unus' meaning 'one', as in the Edmund Spenser epic poem The Faerie Queene (1590, 1596), where the Anglicized name is borne by a beautiful female character who is the object of Red Crosse's affection.

The English Agnes, the Scottish Euna, the English Juno, the English Una, the English Unity, and the English Winifred are derivatives of the name.

The spelling variants Oona (Irish), Oonagh (Irish), Unagh (Gaelic and Irish), and Unna (English) are other forms of Úna.
