    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 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).

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

    Have I told you all how amazing you are lately?

    You've given a lot of great, honest opinions and suggestions. I really appreciate it. And for someone who used to study lists of Saints I cannot believe I didn't think of St. Nonna.

    I don't think I'd ever use the name but between my mother and St. Nonna it might not be too bad.

    Thanks berries.
