More info about the name "Rowena"

Rowena probably originates in Old English language and means "fame and delight". That is more or less just a speculation, though, since the origin is rather unclear. In a British legend, Rowena was an Anglo-Saxon leader's daughter and a beautiful femme fatale. According to contemporary historians, though, the story is fictional. Rowena was also a character in Walter Scott's Ivanhoe.
