Name Meaning

From the Latin name Ursula, a diminutive of ursa ‘(she-)bear’. This was the name of a 4th-century saint martyred at Cologne with a number of companions, traditionally said to have been eleven thousand, but more probably just eleven, the exaggeration being due to a misreading of a diacritic mark in an early manuscript. This name was moderately popular in the 16th century, but its use in the English-speaking world today is selective. A more recent influence has been the film actress Ursula Andress ( b. 1936 in Switzerland).
