"I love my name Nona. When I was younger I thought it sounded too different, but now I am so happy with it as it suits my personality so much. In Indonesian cultures it means girl and in Italy Nonna means grandmother. So I like the feminine theme around it. Although when I am in Italy people don't respond as enthusiastic when they hear my name than in other countries where most people love the name. It's a really dreamy name in my opinion, which I love. I've been called Noni (I hate it when strangers do as they read my name wrong in an email, but friends use it lovingly), Mona, Ilona, Nonna, Nina (?), None (lol). Never met anyone with my name. I love it." Jun. 17, 2019:

"My name is Nona and I could never pretend I thought my mom was calling "some other kid" home from the park. There is actually another Nona with the same last name as me in the town I live (no relation)." Feb. 7, 2019:
"I find it interesting, because my "mom", who is also my grandmother, is named Nona. She was named for her grandmother, Nona Thomas Crockett, who was also apparently named, by her grandmother, though, her grandmother did not share the same name of Nona." Jul. 8, 2014:
"i am also named Nona as i was growing up i thought it was an odd name i cudnt figure out why i was caleed Nona with the meaning the ninth child born when i was really the 3rd child born, but for whatever reason im now 54 yrs old & i love my name its not so common & i like being different."

"my moms name is nona i think its a pretty name its actually pretty popular here in hawaii." Mar. 25, 2009:
"Subtract the "a" away from this name and this becomes "Non", as in General Zod's male accomplice Non in the original 'Superman' films of 1978 and 1980. The character Non, played by Irish-American actor and one-time professional boxer Jack O'Halloran, is the mute villain from Krypton, who looks a bit like The Hulk but who has the personality of Frank Spencer in the 1970s British television sitcom Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. It was O'Halloran's decision to make his character mute, because the part of General Zod went to Terence Stamp who is, of course, British, and the English actress Sarah Douglas was the one to get the part of Ursa, General Zod's female accomplice. I don't think this name is likely to revive as yet (as opposed to Octavia which means "eighth" in Latin while Nona means "ninth"), partly because old films including those two Superman ones are often repeated and partly because of the Italian word "nonna" which translates into English as "grandmother" (just like "nonno" translates as "grandfather")."

"I have had this name for over 50 years. I have met a few other "Nona's" in my lifetime. It also means "grandmother" in Italian which is a coincidence since my grandmother named me. I think it is a very nice name - it's easily spelled and the only correction I occasionally have to make is to say with and "N" - Not "M"." Dec. 21, 2006:
