What I you think? Do you think it's too masculine? I'm not a fan of very frilly or girls names but am worried other people might think it's ugly. I think I might just love it though.

Similar suggestions are welcome.

Lovely.

I love it too!

I really like it and we have considered it for DD due in 8 weeks. I loved the Ramona books when I was younger. Maggie Gyllenhaal called her first Ramona and is think she is sensational.

Lovely

Absolutely love Ramona. YY to Beezus & Ramona, and Ramona Marquez (Karen in Outnumbered). Also the nanny in Cold Feet was a Ramona. Plus don't forget seminal punk band the Ramones! A great name all round.

Not fussed....I think what puts me off is the 'mona (....moaner!!!)'. Ramona the moaner?!?! Have you got Latino connections? As that girl from Outnumbered has got a Spanish or Portuguese surname which swings it imo.

Fantastic name. My DH vetoed it too though.

Not all moaning is bad wink

I also think of the nanny from Cold Feet. Loved that programme. I really like it. I do hear 'moaner', though there's always going to be something with a name.

Really love Ramona! A gorgeous name, strong sounding somehow.

Fabulous name. LOVED the Ramona books. And Maggie Gyllenhall named her daughter this, which makes it cool. Oh, and it's the name of my friend's wonderful little chihuahua grin

Love it, it was on my list for DC2, but we already have a Beezus (Beatrice).

Brilliant name, and I think Ramona Jane would sound fantastic.

bootsycollins Sun 31-Mar-13 00:33:53

I absolutely adore Ramona

KittenOfDoom Sun 31-Mar-13 11:24:45

I think Jane is too plain to go with Ramona. Something a little more dashing or exotic is required.

Love it. I loved the Ramona and Beezus books as a child, my girls now love the film too- tis very good. I had a dd called Beatrice and my girls used to call her Beezus sometimes because of the books smile
Ramona to me is independent and feisty. Great name!

DD was very nearly called this but we are great shorteners of names and I just couldn't cope with 'Mona' as a nickname. Plus it didn't really suit her. But love it in principle!
