Roma is a unisex given name in many languages, and is the feminine form of the name Roman in some languages. It is also a male given name in Slavic cultures. In Hindu mythology, Roma is an alternate name for Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity. It is often short for Romany, a name commonly given to girls not of Romany extraction, and rarely given to those of Romany extraction.

Another source is Roma, Italian for Rome, the capital of Italy, and is given in that spirit.
