The first time I ever read this name was in Rainbow Valley by L M. Mongomery~ Anne book 7. Una Meredith is a very sweet lovely character. If I ever used this name (not likely), it would be to honor her. (More likely to have daughters Anne, Marilla, or Diana or Rachel! Also Ilse and etc.!)
I don't why some use the other spelling. It makes me think of the Addams Family. "They're creepy and they're kooky; they're seriously spooky: they all together ooky- the Addams Family" I never watched that show, but I have heard the theme. All those words with the double o's make me connect them to Oona. Idk. I guess I just like the other spelling.

Una. It's prettier, it's in The Faerie Queene, and it's the original Irish spelling as well.My darling Roo, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014
