Ronja is a name invented by the Swedish author Astrid Lindgren for her book "Ronja Rövardotter" - English translation: Ronia, the Robber's Daughter: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0140317201/ref=sib_dp_pt/103-4937887-2190248#reader-link
Astrid Lindgren was searching for a name for her main character, looked on a map of northern Sweden and found the Sami name of a lake "Juronjaure". She cut off "Ju-" and "-ure" and had invented a new name!
