The Pop Culture Baby Name Rawnie

The baby name Rawnie appeared on the SSA’s baby name list just twice in the late 1930s:

  • 1940: not listed
  • 1939: 6 baby girls named Rawnie
  • 1938: 8 baby girls named Rawnie [debut]
  • 1937: not listed

Where did it come from?

It was inspired by a character named Rawnie in the movie Rascals, which was released in mid-1938. The film is about a young woman suffering from amnesia. A group of gypsies take her in, name her Rawnie (“which means “lady” in the Gypsy language”) and teach her how to tell fortunes.

I did some research on the word rawnie and, though I wasn’t expecting it to, it really does mean “lady” in Romany. I’m also seeing it spelled rawni, raunie and rauni in various Romany dictionaries.
