"I am 44 yrs old the name Dawna is not too bad, if people know how to spell it. But if people think I'm Donna, than I HATE IT. I was named after a deceased aunt. I would rather have my name be Dawn. Maybe, I'll change it for the next half of my life. NOT REALLY" Aug. 29, 2008:
"When I was born my parents couldn't agree on a name. After a suggestion from a nurse, I was named Dawna Anne, so I guess technically I was named by the nurse. I have always liked the spelling as it is different, however sometimes I get tired of always having to spell it. I was born in 1938 in Canada." May. 8, 2008:
"My name is Dawna Elise. I'm 34 years old. There were many death's in my family around the time I was born. My mother wanted me to have a name that meant a new beginning, like the name Dawn. Dawn was a very popular name at the time and she wanted something different so they added an "a" I love my name, however people ask me how to pronounce it.
They say, "is it Donna or Danna?" and I say it's the same as Donna but spelled different. I also get people saying it like "Du-wanna" I dont know why it is so complicated, I guess these days there are so many bizar names that people think it is said differently." Aug. 23, 2007:
