Comments for MONA (3):

Mona (3) is my name. It was given to me upon marriage by my Egyptian husband 41 years ago. It means "My Desire" or "My Hope" in Arabic and it is not pronounced as in the English name. In English we say "Mowna" but in Arabic it is MONA (the on is prounouced as ON not OWN. It is spelt with a U in Jordan and some other Arabic countries but is very popular all throughout the Arab world whether within the Christian or Muslim communities. By the way my original name was Llyn (Welsh for Clear Lake) and I am Welsh ethnically.
