Love it.

Love it

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.

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

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

FetaCheeny Thu 23-May-13 21:39:15

Nowhere near as nice as Greta or Martha. I hear moaner, sorry!

Love it! Also am big fan of Ramona Quimby books. A wonderful world.

Makes me think of Beezus.

Decoy Thu 23-May-13 02:50:54

I think "moaner", sorry!

I like it. smile

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

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.

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.

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

JoyMachine Wed 22-May-13 22:21:16

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?

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

sillyoldfool Wed 22-May-13 22:06:45

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!

sillyoldfool Wed 22-May-13 22:02:53

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!!!!!

JoyMachine Wed 22-May-13 21:59:59

Just another thought- you'd have three children ending in 'a' sound then too...

What about Romy or Romilly?

Or carry on in the SOM vein and have Brigitta?

pooka Wed 22-May-13 21:59:56

I like it but....

feel it has to be pronounced with rolling rs a la Rrrrrrrrramoooona.

Don't know why. Think there was a character in cold feet - the nanny - who was called rrrrramona and was spanish.

JoyMachine Wed 22-May-13 21:58:21

I love Ramona because of the books!

I don't see how you could top Gret@ though, just dreamy.

Ragusa Wed 22-May-13 21:56:01

I sort of see what you mean about the preponderance of Os grin but it wouldn't worry me overly. Will she have a middle name as well?

sillyoldfool Wed 22-May-13 21:52:45

We've had a boy's name both previous pregnancies and I've gone off both of them!

I just really struggle with boy's names, I like solid but a bit unusual.

sillyoldfool Wed 22-May-13 21:50:53

I LOVE Ezra, but DH doesn't, Solomon and Amos are really nice...
hmmmmm

Stiefeliblue Wed 22-May-13 21:49:50
