Reply to: the origin and pronounication of the name by knowknow
It actually sound like Fauna the name of a Roman goddess of fertility. It's pronounced fawn-ah and Fonna is propably just a mispelling of that name. The term "Flora and Fauna" is used as a term for plants and flowers especially in English poetry. Flora meaning flowers and Fauna meaning forest or plants.

So Fonna probably means the same thing as Fauna.
