Nona Origin and Meaning

The name Nona is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "ninth".

Nona is a name sometimes given to the ninth child -- but unlikely to serve that purpose today. Musical cred: the name of a song by Motley Crue.

In Roman mythology, Nona was also a goddess of pregnancy and the spinner of the thread of life.

Nona was the mother of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and said to be a cousin of King Arthur. There is a childrens' book called Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola and an eponymous 1978 Stephen King short story.
