Did you see the recent thread? I'll bump it up for you. I know very little about Scandinavian names but I've heard of Runa and like it well enough.

Why not Google it?

There's a page on Runa on Behind the Name:

Also Nordic Names, which is a great resource for Scandi names:

I think it's a lovely name. Very unusual but sweet and intuitive to say and spell (it's ROO-na). I know a little one who's 6 months old and she gets Ru for short - adorable!

I don't know what was on those links. I found that Runa was the name of a troll in norse mythology. Interesting, but I still like the name, it appears to have a long interesting history. Also used as short for Frideruna and similar names.
