Meaning & History
Portuguese form of the compound name Muniadomna, which is likely not genuinely Latin but instead a latinization of a name that was probably of either Basque or Germanic origin. Even so, compare the Latin words munia meaning "duties, functions" and domna meaning "lady, mistress".A notable bearer of this name was Mumadona Dias, a 10th-century Countess of Portugal.
