It is written Ramūnas, not Ramunas!
[noted -ed]

I just wanted to note that although the name Ramūnas is indeed ultimately derived from Lithuanian 'ramus' meaning "calm", it also contains the Lithuanian (masculine) patronymic suffix -ūnas. For more information about that suffix, please see:

- "On the distribution of personal names with the suffix -(i)ūnas in the seventeenth century" written by Vitalija Maciejauskienė: http://www.lki.lt/LKI_LT/index.php?%20%20option=com_content&view=article&id=489 (in English)
- "Lithuanian Names" written by William R. Schmalstieg: http://www.lituanus.org/1982_3/82_3_01.htm (in English; also gives an example of a given name that is similar in construction to Ramūnas: Arūnas, which comes from from 'aras' meaning "eagle" plus the suffix -ūnas)
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_family_name_affixes#Suffixes (in English)

With that said, here are other sources for the name Ramūnas that might be of note:

- https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ram%C5%ABnas (in German)
- https://www.tevu-darzelis.lt/vaiku-vardai/Ramunas/ (in Lithuanian; mentions that Ramūnas comes from the name Ramas, which itself is derived from Lithuanian 'ramus' meaning "calm")
- http://www.vardai.org/vardo-reiksme/Ramunas/ (in Lithuanian)
- http://day.lt/vardai/Ramunas (in Lithuanian)
- http://www.thelithuanians.com/names/name2r.html (in English; mentions that Ramūnas contains the suffix -ūnas).
