Svea

Svea is a Swedish female name. The name was a very popular girls' name during the first half of the 20th century and today (year 2012) it's rising in popularity again. The name derives from the name of the tribe called "svear or swedes" who came to conquere the land which is today's Sweden. So the meaning of the name Svea is "Swede".
