    What are your impressions of Nona?

    Nona is currently my #2 real-life-usable, SO-approved girls' name (#1 being Athena), but I don't think I've ever really bothered to solicit any feedback on it before (full disclosure: I am now soliciting feedback on multiple naming boards; if you've seen this post already, I'm sorry that you are now looking at it again). How do you imagine a Nona? Her parents? Any vibes Nona gives you, I am interested in hearing about!

    I haven't really given a lot of thought to combos (though I'm pretty happy with the ideas I've spontaneously generated in the past 5 minutes), so I'd be interested to hear any thoughts on that front, as well. Currently my list stands at:

    Nona Winifred
    Nona Harriet
    Nona Penelope

    Nona reminds me of the Italian word Nonna for grandma.

    I think Athena is a lovely name though!

    I instantly thought of grandmother, Athena is not my personal taste but I still think it's a wonderful name and would go well with any of the middle names you have put forth above, I'd stick with Athena
    Number 1 Aunty to one adorable ray of sunshine Rosalee Jillian 'Rosie'/'Roe'
    Cousin & Godmother to the delightful Erica Marisol 'Eri'/'Ricki'
    & Godmother to Sadie Bryn 'Bean' & honorary aunt to Molly Maeve Tuesday 'Molly Dolly'!

    I like your Nona combinations, but I don't really like it as a full name. I think of a small, elderly Italian woman (actually it's Joey's grandmother from Friends.)
    I like Athena, but I feel that I'm a bit biased.
