My mother's name is Donna, which I despise. She goes by her nickname, Nonna, most of the time. I've been thinking about honoring lately and I rather like it. Do you think it could work as a first or middle name?
I'd like to go ahead and acknowledge that I do know Nonna is also the Italian word for grandmother. However, I'm not too concerned with that as I'm just namestorming.
Nonna is actually used in Russia too. I think it is fine for a first name but I am not sure it will flow as a middle.
You have a very good point about it's flow (and use). It does seem to fit better as a first name.

Maybe use Anona, Winona, or Nanon and Nonna as a nickname?
