From Burmese ရန်ကုန် (rankun) meaning "end of strife" from ရန် (ran) meaning "enemy, danger" or "quarrel" combined with ကုန် (kun) meaning "to run out, end". This is the name of the largest city in Myanmar (Burma), which served as the country's capital until 2006. It was formerly known as Rangoon in English (based on the Arakanese pronunciation of the name) and is sometimes still referred to as such in other languages.
