Mrnja or Mrnjava (Serbian: Мрња, Latin: Mergnanus, also Mrnjan and Mrnjav. His real name has been claimed to be Nenad, Mrnjava being a nickname) was a Serbian provincial nobleman and treasurer (kaznac) serving Helen of Anjou at Trebinje (Travunija), the wife of Stephen Uroš I of Serbia. He was the father of Vukašin Mrnjavčević, the co-ruler of the Serbian Empire (1365–1371) and founder of the Mrnjavčević dynasty.
Benedictine monk and historian Mavro Orbini registered Mrnjava in his works.
It is also possible that Mrnjan and Mrnjava are in fact father and son, claimed in Europäische Stammtafeln.
