Now that I am in my mid 50's I can easily say I love my name and after reading so many nice comments I am glad that my name is "Ramona". It may be different and not very common but then again neither am I! Yes, like others I am very protective and will confront anyone when I think something is wrong! Hate it when it is spelled incorrectly! It's so EASY phonetically as it is to spell " RA MO NA" by the way only one guy ever called me Mona (daughter's ex) and I liked it.. Funny how everyone I know growing up and still to this date call me COOKIE!!!" Aug. 21, 2010: Report as inappropriate

A big love story in that era. I love my name and most people do misspell it. I cringe when I see Ramona spelled Romona. Phonetically it is wrong. My nick name to family and old friends is Monie and all through high school I went by Mona. Then I grew into my name and love it. It is more formal than Mona and is great for business. No one ever confuses me with someone else. All the Ramona's should meet and have a big party to meet one another. I have only met two other Ramona's in my lifetime."

I really can't see myself as a 'Ruth' ...and all the candy bar jokes that would have come up... I have always wondered how quirky we all are. My experience in meeting people with our name is that we're all strong willed individuals who stand up against stuff that's wrong when we see it. Thus living up to the meaning of 'wise protectress'. Has anyone else had this experience? Myself, and all the others I've met also certainly stand out in a crowd. Heck, 'unique' doesn't even begin to cover it. Really nice people though, each and every one, and all with hearts of gold." Feb. 3, 2009: Report as inappropriate

It's nice to see that some of you share the same name and have come here. When I was a little girl, my nick name was Monie. I loved being called Monie & was only called Ramona at school or when my Mother was mad at me! "Ramona Joy"...I love the meaning of the name too. "Wise Protectress" that suits me. So does the song, "To Ramona" by Bob Dylan. Being a Springsteen fan, and Dylan being a musical influence for him makes it all come together in some fashion!" Oct. 12, 2008: Report as inappropriate

My second grade teacher ruined any hope I had for growing accustomed to the sound of it as she chose the book ?Ramona the Pest? to read to the class. Teasing ensued and from that moment forward I loathed it and went by Mona.

Only the elders in the family still call me RaMona and it still sounds as foreign to my ear as it always has. I do like the name as a middle name, however, and wish it were my middle name rather than first. The name rings beautifully adjoined with a name in front of it. I do like the meaning as "Wise Protectess" and as a few people have shared here, every woman I have met also with the name is, indeed, very unique, creative and strong.
