A sister for M@rth@ and Gret@?
Will she be forever called moany mona?!

grin Joymachine, I do love g's name.

She will have 2 middle names... That's a whole other topic, our girls each have a 'normal' middle name, then a slightly crazy hippy one, so we can't now call the 3rd something louise owen or similar!!!!!

HA! we honestly didn't get the SOM connection until we announced DD2's name and everyone asked if we were going to have 7!

Romilly is lovely, we are surrounded by Milly's though, really want to steer clear of anything with that in it, and brigitte would end up being called bridget which I'm just not keen on.

I can't roll my Rs!

The Ramona I know has brothers Florian, Adrian, and Samuel

Mitch Benn has a G. He also has an Astrid (but it doesn't end in 'a')

Do you need Germanic names?
Inga?
Lotte?
Heidi?

It doesn't need to be germanic, but we do seem to like germanic names!

Ramona is fabulous. I love it! Ramona Aurora is my fantasy name for any future daughters (fantasy, because Mr Frumble would never agree).

You have impeccable taste OP. I also have a Martha wink and Greta is lovely too.

Look up a Ramones song called She Talks To Rainbows, beautiful. I would think you must be a fan if your DD had that name.

My Dn is called Ramona & everybody calls her Mona unless she is naughty as then she gets her full name which is K***r-Ramona .
It is a beautiful name though & definitely goes with your other Dcs names .

Also Dsis gave her the nickname Mona because of Mona the vampire she even has a cat called Fang like the cartoon grin

The actress who played Karen in Outnumbered is Ramona Marquez she is a lovely little girl.I like the name.

I love it, really love it. DH vetoed though so booo to him.
Have same surname to you as well smile

Personally I don't like it as it reminds me of ramona from New York housewives grin

Other than that its a nice enough name - goes with Martha (love) and greta (nice).
It doesn't sing to me like Martha does though.
