Subject: Some female royal names

I've been wondering about a few Portuegese and Navarrese female names that I've seen in their ancient genealogy.

Berengaria - One Navarrese princess by this name married Richard I of England
Branca - I'm assuming this a form of Branka or Blanca though
Munia - Countess of Castile, married Sancho III of Navarre
Nuña - Nuña of Biscaya married Ferdinand, son of Garcia III of Navarre
Quiterie - Died 1536. Daughter of Catherine I of Foix, queen of Navarre

I've also been wondering about Ermengarde (I've seen the spellings Ermengarda and Irmengarde). One was the first wife of Louis the Pious, king of the Franks, and another was the mistress of George I, king of England.

Thanks in advance. :-)
