What's then meaning of the name,"Ouida."?

It was the name I already had before being adopted in Seattle. My adoption was finalized in Tacoma,WA where I grew up. I've always wondered about the meaning of this very weird name. Thanx!

    Ouida (January 7, 1839 – January 25, 1908) was the pen name of the English novelist Maria Louise Ramé (although she referred to be known as Marie Louise de la Ramée).

    It was also a name on american female warrior.

    I hope this helps!
