It is linguistically related to BONNIE (which means "pretty" in Scottish). [noted -ed]

This name is beautiful, with the nickname Bonnie. It is true that this Spanish word is not actually used as a name in Spanish speaking countries, in general. However, that doesn't make it a less attractive name, in English speaking countries, where it is an uncommon, but fairly well-known name. I have a much-loved character named Bonita, in my WIP (novel).

Bonita Norris from Wokingham, Berkshire, England, was the youngest British woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest at the age of 22 from May 2010 until May 2012, when her record was broken by Leanna Shuttleworth, aged 19.

The name Bonita is very beautiful. People say that it's amusing because it means "pretty" in Spanish, but names like Linda, Bella and Belle also have straight meanings as beautiful and pretty in Italian and French but nobody laughs at it and everyone got used to hearing those names. So I think Bonita is just a great, cool, unique and pretty name.

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.

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

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.

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.
