Meaning & History

Diminutive or extended form of Ursula, as -ina is an Italian feminine diminutive suffix (from Latin -īna meaning "belonging to"). This essentially makes the name a double diminutive of Ursa. The blessed Ursulina of Parma was a nun and visionary who at the age of 15 received visions instructing her to go to Avignon, France, to convince the antipope there, Clement VII (reigned 1378-1394), to step down and so end the Great Western Schism.
