Has anyone ever heard the girls name 'Runa' before? I really like it. I believe it's Norwegian and means 'secret, flowing' I'm thinking this or something similar if baby is a girl. Anyone have any opinions/other suggestions? X

Yes. I know a Runa. Lovely name.

Never heard of it but it doesn't sound made up. I would imagine someone called runa to have a good story behind their name.

Never heard of it but it's a lovely sound.

Never heard it before, if it helps I'd pronounce it Roona not Runner, not sure which its meant to be smile

Thank you everyone. It's top of my list...for now! Only 5wks till I'm due so really have to get organised with names, we keep changing our minds confused

I like it.

It immediately reminded me of rune stones, it's probably not related but I suppose rune isn't heard often so some will make the link. (Not a bad thing in my opinion, but worth flagging in case you dislike the association)

Thank you Curls Rune is apparently the masculine form of Runa.

FenellaMaxwellsPony Fri 17-Feb-17 20:17:52

FartnissEverbeans Fri 17-Feb-17 20:25:06

Yes, taught a lovely girl with this name and a cute surname to match!

Sophronia Fri 17-Feb-17 20:37:11

Juliecloud Fri 17-Feb-17 20:40:26

I know a Rhuna. Both are lovely names.

Jooni Fri 17-Feb-17 21:19:23

I know a little one, she gets Ru for short. I think it's lovely.

whirliebird Fri 17-Feb-17 21:57:23

Gosh, so many positive comments. Thank you smile

I knew a Rune (male, Danish), but wasn't aware of a female version.
I don't love it - but roo-roo/noo-noo could be quite cute nns when she's little

SaudadeObama Sat 18-Feb-17 06:13:38

I know a Rune who's a male Norwigan. Not heard the female version but it's nice.

Ha ha, almost tempted to add Rune to my boys list now grin
