    My best friend is named Rhiannon, but goes by the nickname Nonny. But I'm sure you could use the nickname Nonna for that. I think it's nice to honour your mum, as long as you don't mind the grandmother connection.

    I am also Italian, and grew up calling my paternal grandmother Nonna. I just don't think I could ever get past it.

    I like it. Near where I'm from, there's a church named after St Nonna. I believe she was Welsh but died in Cornwall. So I tend to think of her rather than the word for grandmother in a language I don't speak or hear often. And Nanny is a word for grandmother in English, but I still know people named that. I don't think that connection should bother you. I'd love to meet a Nonna!

    I don't like it. If I wanted to honor a Donna, I would consider Donella, Donica, Donita, or perhaps even Madonna (only as a middle name for this one).
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    What about Nina? It's very similar, but she still gets her own name,
