What I you think? Do you think it's too masculine? I'm not a fan of very frilly or girls names but am worried other people might think it's ugly. I think I might just love it though.

Similar suggestions are welcome.

DD was very nearly called this but we are great shorteners of names and I just couldn't cope with 'Mona' as a nickname. Plus it didn't really suit her. But love it in principle!

I love it btw

Love it. I loved the Ramona and Beezus books as a child, my girls now love the film too- tis very good. I had a dd called Beatrice and my girls used to call her Beezus sometimes because of the books smile
Ramona to me is independent and feisty. Great name!

I think Jane is too plain to go with Ramona. Something a little more dashing or exotic is required.

I absolutely adore Ramona

Brilliant name, and I think Ramona Jane would sound fantastic.

Love it, it was on my list for DC2, but we already have a Beezus (Beatrice).

Fabulous name. LOVED the Ramona books. And Maggie Gyllenhall named her daughter this, which makes it cool. Oh, and it's the name of my friend's wonderful little chihuahua grin

Really love Ramona! A gorgeous name, strong sounding somehow.

I also think of the nanny from Cold Feet. Loved that programme. I really like it. I do hear 'moaner', though there's always going to be something with a name.

Frikadellen Fri 29-Mar-13 19:19:55

Adore it but dh said no way.. grumbles

KittenOfDoom Fri 29-Mar-13 14:49:58

Not all moaning is bad wink

marthabear Fri 29-Mar-13 11:47:26

Fantastic name. My DH vetoed it too though.

Not fussed....I think what puts me off is the 'mona (....moaner!!!)'. Ramona the moaner?!?! Have you got Latino connections? As that girl from Outnumbered has got a Spanish or Portuguese surname which swings it imo.

Absolutely love Ramona. YY to Beezus & Ramona, and Ramona Marquez (Karen in Outnumbered). Also the nanny in Cold Feet was a Ramona. Plus don't forget seminal punk band the Ramones! A great name all round.

Lovely

I really like it and we have considered it for DD due in 8 weeks. I loved the Ramona books when I was younger. Maggie Gyllenhaal called her first Ramona and is think she is sensational.

Haberdashery Thu 28-Mar-13 21:53:17

I love it too!

birdofthenorth Thu 28-Mar-13 21:52:06

Lovely.

Lover it, love it, love it!

LittleMissLidl Thu 28-Mar-13 21:36:15

Ok, enough now with the loving of Ramona... I don't want it getting too popular. I was a bit scared of the baby names board but now I think you're all lovely.

pipkins I think that was why it was in my mind. Does anyone else search tv credits for baby name ideas?

SoulTrain Thu 28-Mar-13 21:34:14

I love it!!! It's a fantastic name! DH vetoed it though...hmm

SanityClause Thu 28-Mar-13 21:33:10

I loved those books! Yes! Go for it!

PipkinsPal Thu 28-Mar-13 21:32:23

And the little girl who plays Karen in Outnumbered is called Ramona too.

NaturalBlondeYeahRight Thu 28-Mar-13 21:31:48

Ooooo, haven't heard that name for ages. Love it.
