Oona is also the name of a fairy in the 1985 movie "Legend", starring Tom Cruise and Tim Curry. I know someone who named her daughter Oonaleyna (which she made up by combining Oona and Lena). I think Oona is a very sweet, otherworldly name. I might even name my daughter this.

I can see someone, deep in the night, crooning this name at the moon (on a mountaintop). Oona. Oona!

For some reason I don't like this. I like Una and Oonagh, but Oona looks either like an imcomplete Oonagh or a 'creative'ly spelled Una.

In the book "Smack" by Melvin Burgess, about some teenage runaways who become addicted to heroin, the two main characters, Gemma and Tar (real name David) have a daughter named Oona. I love this name, it is so much prettier spelled Oona than Una! It's also close to one of my favorite names, Luna. Oona really is a beautiful name.
