    Yes, just as Lola MEANS grandmother in the Philippines. Still... people use it.

    I imagine Nona as an imaginative child with huge eyes and wispy pigtails. I like it, it's similar to Oona which is beautiful and I know one just like the Nona I imagined.

    Athena is wow though, I think it deserves a spot on my own list!

    I have a daughter named Fiona that we call Nona or Nona-bear as a pet name. I think it sounds sweet, but prefer it as a nickname.

    I don't think it is that bad. If Nellie, Hattie and Etta can be first names, why not Nona? It was used as a name for previous generations. Personally, I am not a fan, but I don't find it particularly terrible.
    Ttc a baby brother or sister for Luther Wolf!
