(jyoo' nih uhss) Roman personal name, possibly a shortened form of Junianus. In
Romans 16:7, Paul extended greeting to a certain Junia, whom he referred to as his kinsman, his fellow prisoner, and an apostle. The form of the name is feminine. Nothing is known of this individual beyond what may be inferred from this verse. Some recent commentators see the person as a woman and possibly as the wife of Andronicus. See Andronicus; Apostle.
