What Does My Name Mean? Ronyae, The Meaning of Names

What does the name “Ronyae” mean? A name is much more than just a name!

R is for romp, you know how to have fun!

O is for openness, it's refreshing!

N is for nice, need I say more?

Y is for youthful, your eternal look.

A is for abundant, your cheer knows no bounds.

E is for exquisite, who could argue?

Out of 5,364,811 records in the U.S. Social Security Administration public data, the name “Ronyae” was not present. It is possible the name you are searching has less than five occurrences per year in each state. You might want to use a short version of your first name or perhaps your nickname.

On the other hand, you simply have a name that no one else in America is using. For 132 years only your parents have thought of using your name. Hoorah! You are a unique individual.

Your name in reverse order is “Eaynor”. A random rearrangement of the letters in your name (anagram) will give ‘Aeyorn’. (How do you pronounce that?)

Ranya Elajah Snowden, born May 2, 1972 to Daisy Snowden and Anthony Thompson in Waukegan, IL. Ranya has always had an imaginative heart and mental capacity; she told her kindergarten classmates and teachers/aides that her original name was "Anthonette" (an-thwa-nett), after her father, and that she had two older sisters that worked as airline stewardesses.

She was the only child born to her Mother, and the second eldest of four children born to her Father. Living in a single-parent home with her Mother, Ranya shared her Father with her siblings, and was surrounded by a complete family; included that her Mother's sister was living in the home just above their home on 834 Adams Street in Waukegan, IL.

Ranya's imaginitive behavior found her on an invisible stage during her 1st grade schoolyear, as she arrived to Carmen Elementary School one day, wearing her Mother's bra, stuffed with tissue; imagine the sight of a six-year old with boobs, standing at the chalkboard reciting "Roses Are Red".

By her 3rd grade schoolyear, Ranya and her Mother moved to Detroit, Michigan. It wasn't long before Ranya cranked up her imagination, and entertained any and every person she came in contact with. It was in Detroit, that a star was born.

By the start of her secondary schoolyears at Pulaski Middle School, Ranya's imgination had taken her places only she could dream of, casting her dreams in a lake of curiosity among her classmates and teachers. It was during these years that Ranya took her creativity level beyond her journals. She participated in school plays, talent shows, and clubs. Inspired by a visit from Gary Coleman to her then school, Greenfield Elementary, Ranya knew what she wanted to do in life: Be Somebody. Not just somebody, but SOMEBODY. At that moment, Ranya's shyness took the backseat as she exceled in academics and extra-curricular activities.

Another move within the metro Detroit area, Linwood, or should we say, "Central" part of Detroit, gave Ranya's imagination a whole other level to play with. Attending Durfee Middle School inspired Ranya's imagination to let her fellow classmates and peers know that she was NO virgin, when indeed she was. Of course, this gave her more credit than she actually wanted. But, it wasn't long for the others to realize that Ranya wasn't, and hadn't "given up" anything. That realization would be her entrance and description for years to come by her peers; it did more help than hurt.

The High School years ... what a wonderful time for Ranya to spread her imginative wings. It was during her high school years that Ranya earned the name, "RONYAE" (From her Algebra teacher Ms. Smiley) - Creativity in the making - and it was here that RONYAE was born.

RONYAE took over, and Ranya was co-pilot during the most fundamental part of Ranya's life; gaining accredited, positive exposure for her imagination and creativity, RONYAE participated in almost every scholastic course offered at Central High School.

Being recognized for her academic productiveness, Ranya found herself in Project Challenge after making a 3.81 gpa (grade point average) in her Sophomore year at CHS. The opportunity to take on more accelerated courses, Ranya wasted no time in joining various clus (FHA, Yearbook Staff, Spanish/French Clubs, Glee Club, JA, and NAACP School Program). Out of all, the most helpful for her future would be her position on the Yearbook Staff: The Centralite, Central High School's yearbook's staff was RONYAE's home away from home for two consecutive years.

She gained knowledge in graphic design, page making, photography, dimensional measurements and usage techniques, artwork and a variety of other first rate trades. Not knowing that these skills would take her further than she would prefer, she continued in media when she enrolled into Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University; which is a story that marks a change in Ranya's life and herSTORY (pronounced hersto-ree). And which we shall get into further down the line.

Although never lingering too far from her destiny, Ranya had it in her mind that she would make Psychology her major. That being after she learned of the strict discipline within the School of Business and Industry (SBI) at FAMU; wearing a blue or black suit every single day wasn't what she'd had in mind. Matter of fact, it wasn't she wanted at all. Especially the discipline; mental depths and physiological borders intrigued her. Hence, her change of major to Psychology; journalism always had its head in the forefront of her final endeavors for further education. And not only did she end her time at FAMU being in the Social Arts, but she later continued her studies of journalism after completing courses for her original major-Pyschology.

We're sure that Ranya generally practices her Psychology degree on the streets. You may laugh, but it's true; perhaps that's where she sees fit for its best use. HA! That sounds hilarious just by typing it. We must pause for the cause at this moment, just too funny.

But anywho, back to the bio. Ranya returned to Michigan after her father passed, and continued her courses at Wayne County Community College. But it wasn't long for her eccentric spirits to flourish, and this would be the turning part of a young lady's journey to becoming a 'Voice 4 a Nation'.
