In Spanish it is generally pronounced BO-NEE-TA.

The name is corny and tacky, a person named Bonita would have credibility problems, Spanish-speakers would find her name amusing, and it reminds me of that annoying song by Madonna from the 80s, La Isla Bonita.

Ew. This name sounds tacky and rude to me.

I am Spanish and NOBODY bears this name in ANY Spanish-speaking country. It is used as a noun meaning "beautiful" and it usually refers to objects, not to people -except maybe in some South American countries.

This name is dumb. Nobody in Spanish-speaking countries is named this.

Lol, this is my name and yah, almost all the comments on this name are right. It is not a common name with Spanish speaking people. Infact, I have never heard of any Latin person with this name. Mostly just 'old white ladies\". And they pronounce it "bu-nee-da". Spanish people seem to find it comical that my name is Bonita and some have even refused to call me by my name because it makes them feel odd. The other common misconception behind the meaning of the name is that it means "beautiful" in spanish. This is not the case. The would Bonita means "pretty" in spanish. But it does not mean beautiful. :( not a huge difference I guess, but it is good to know.
