Wayward Roman girl (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

norma

'girl' is the definition.

'wayward roman' is the wordplay.
'wayward' is an anagram indicator.
'roman' is an anagram of 'NORMA'.

(Other definitions for norma that I've seen before include "Shearer or Major" , "The 'Rule' constellation" , "Female" , "Bellini heroine" , "Bellini opera - girl's name" .)
