There is a book series for little girls by Beverly Cleary with a heroine named Ramona. I used to adore those books when I was a little girl, so I am endeared to this name and find it very cute, even though most people I know find it ugly.

Loved this name since my childhood. Ramona Quimby was my favorite series of books. It is a strong sounding girl name and I think it is cute.

The name Ramona means "Protector". I think the name is so cute!

It's definitely very used in Romania. [noted -ed]

It is curious how the same name has different perceptions in different cultures. I'm from Spain and here Ramona is mostly regarded as a lame, ugly name. If you think of a Ramona, you can but picture an old peasant woman living in some lost village. It is dated now and nobody calls their daughter Ramona anymore - thank God!

I think Ramona is an incredibly beautiful name! I have a friend who has a friend that is called Ramona. Ramona is very elegant and unusual. I highly recommend it!

It's such a horrible name that I can't even find a word to describe how horrible it is.

Actors Peter Sarsgaard & Maggie Gyllenhaal have a daughter Ramona Sarsgaard, born 3th October, 2006 in New York City.

It makes me think of an annoying, loud-mouthed woman with dark eyes, dark, curly hair, and trashy clothes. It also sounds like the name some hardcore Ramones fans would give their daughter.

Tre Cool , the drummer for the punk band Green Day, named his daughter this.

May also be spelt Romona. I believe this is the Italian or German spelling. Pronounced (Ro-mo-na).
-- Rom  1/8/2009
A German or Italian spelling of Ramona doesn't exist. There's just Ramona.

What a nice name!

What a gorgeous name!

I hate the 'moan' sound in Ramona. So unattractive.
-- Anonymous User  8/18/2010
I originally hated this name when I read "Ramona And Beezus" but as I grew older, the name grew on me.
I've never met a Ramona; and I love the sound of it. It also kind of reminds me of Ramona Flowers (of Scott Pilgrim.) Spunky and smart. It's a lovely name, in my opinion.

I associate Ramona first and foremost with the Helen Hunt Jackson novel of the same name rather than Ramona Quimby of the children's books. I really like the name, I feel it is strong yet undoubtedly feminine.

Ramona Victoria Flowers, one of the protagonists in the Scott Pilgrim series. Portrayed by Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the movie.

Ramona is an adorable name! We all got it from the Ramona books. If you wanted to, you could name a child Ramona and nickname her " Mona" after the Mona Lisa! Ramona sounds like a name that belongs to a kind girl too!
-- Melys11  1/1/2013
Wow, seems like a lot of people don't like this name. I personally think its adorable and sweet, and I predict it making a comeback in the next few years.
-- Oohvintage  6/15/2013
The name Ramona was given to 197 baby girls born in the US in 2012 (:
-- Oohvintage  7/17/2013
I like the nicknames Mona and Moni.
-- shadow1999  10/4/2013
I love the name Ramona. Reminds me of Ramona Flowers of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, an independent, funny, smart young woman. It's a pretty name, unusual and yet not so trendy. The "moan" thing doesn't bother me. To be honest, kids can find a way to make fun of any name. I love this name so much I gave it to the protagonist of a script I'm writing. And it fits her very well.

Ramona Random is a character in the awesome sci-fi/fantasy novel "The Jennifer Morgue" by Charles Stross. She is a secret agent/superhero who eliminates bad guys in a most creative way. She is described as being very beautiful, and is also very smart and funny. She is one of my favorite characters in his books.

I love my name! I can't imagine why anyone would think it is ugly. One doesn't have to like it, but I actually can't think of a name I would like more. My dad heard the song (probably sung by Delores del Rio) on the radio in 1949 just a short time before I was born and said "That's the name I want if the baby is a girl." Back then it was always a surprise and both a girl's name and a boy's name were being chosen. Previous to hearing the song, he had been thinking of the name Maxine. No offense to any Maxines, but I am thankful for the song being played that particular moment when he was listening! Maybe if I'd been named Maxine I would like that name just as much as I like my own name today!

It's great to hear about a Ramona who loves her name. It's what we're naming our soon-to-be-born daughter. I just love the name so much. We affectionately call her Momo sometimes.
-- the detective  11/24/2014
As to the comment about the sound in the middle, I always hear and think of it as broken into the syllables like this "Ra-mo-na" and even when called "Mona" or "Monie" I alwys think of it as being broken between the O and the N so it's never a "moan" sound to me! :-)
-- RamonaCherrie  11/8/2014
I'm surprised. Is this name popular only in Hungary? I thought it was more international. Actually I love the sound of it. At least there won't be many namesakes for Ramona's.
-- heidbz  5/20/2015
I also love my name. I go by the nicknames Mona, Moni, Mo and Momo.
