    Thoughts on Mona?

    I've been thinking about the name Mona Susannah Inez, I like that it's Irish and the meaning connects it to my name (my middle name also mean noble) and it's got historical connection. The only possible problem is the "moan" first syllable.

    Do you think the first syllables would actually be a problem and if you do do you have any ideas?

    I have to admit that the sound of the first syllable makes the name unusable, at least for me.

    Here's a list of names that also mean "noble":

    I love the look of it but unfortunately I feel like some rude kids would turn it the wrong way

    I think it’s stylish in a clunky-retro sort of way, and personally I don’t mind the sound, although I much prefer Nona because you avoid that “moan” syllable.

    I have to admit, the likely nickname Mona is what ultimately put us off using Ramona for our baby girl, because it’s so Marmite and I don’t love it enough to be able to deal with the haters! But I would admire it on someone else’s child.

    I think Mona Susannah Inez is a great combo — funky, spunky and retro-classic.

    My best friend’s name is Mona! She pronounces it Muna tho. I like the moon-nah pronunciation better than “moan”. You can always use Muna, Mina, or Una.
