    Can you nameberries do anything with the name Norma?

    We Have a strong family history--in 2 branches--of the name Norma. Obviously it is very old sounding, and not necessarily in a cool vintage way :-) can anyone think of a way to honor that name with a more usable one?

    I personally think Norma is fine, if a bit nerdy. Perhaps you could use it as a middle? Some Norma-sounding names:

    Nora
    Normandie
    Normina
    Norine
    Nerina
    Nola* I especially like this one. I think it's way underused and very beautiful.

    Eleanora Emma?

    Basically any Nora name and any name ending/beginning with a 'ma' sound could honour a Norma.

    I think Norma is a forerunner and will be dusted off shortly to become popular again. I'd just go with it!
