This is not a variant of Dunya but rather it derives from the word for 'quince'. Serbs have a tradition of naming girls after fruits - Jagoda (strawberry), Višnja (cherry), Jabuka (apple) etc. Therefore Dunja (quince). [noted -ed]

While Dunja may refer to quince, and as such is used as a reference to a women in songs, Dunja is also a given name that comes from Russian Avdotya. Russian nicknames are most commonly used as first names in Croatia and Serbia.
