Girolama is an alteration of Geronima.

see Wikipedia https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girolamo
"Dalla forma latina, venne italianizzato in Ieronimo o Geronimo (fra le forme antiche, anche Hieronimo e Jeronimo). Il passaggio da Geronimo a Gerolamo (da cui anche Girolamo) è dovuto invece a un'alterazione del nome tipica della lingua parlata, secondo un principio altamente riscontrabile nell'onomastica di epoca medievale. Proprio in tale periodo, specie in Italia e Francia, l'uso del nome era dovuto perlopiù al culto verso san Girolamo[1][2]; in Inghilterra si diffuse poco più tardi, a partire dal XII secolo[1]".

Yes, it is a variant of the same name. But if you look at the earliest available Italian-language records (which probably are from the 19th-c.) you'll find the male and female names as Girolamo and Girolama in Sicily, and that's how stokkster1 is probably used to seeing them, so I just wanted to point out that that is the spelling she would be familiar with. This is not some new name that she hasn't encountered before.
