Comments for RHONDA:

I once read in a very popular baby name book, 10,000 Names For Babies, Rhonda means "powerful river". I like that meaning better.

"10,000 Names for Baby" may be popular, but it's wholly inaccurate when it comes to the meaning of this name. "Powerful river" is a completely false meaning, as far as I can tell from my research. Most books and sites that have the word "baby" in their title can't be trusted. It's sad, but true.

I think this name is totally cool. I wish it wasn't so out of style.

Let the great tune by The Beach Boys "Help Me Rhonda" bring it back in style!

I love the name Rhonda. I think it's a nice name, but i'd hate to be called Ron for short. Because then people might wonder if their full name is Veronica. And I like when names are out of style or different. I was the only Tara in my grade and elementary school and it was really cool. I would never name my kid a popular name.

I love the song and the name! It's spunky and sweet and all-around cool. I had been listening to "Help Me, Rhonda" in the car on my way to the store, was humming it as I shopped, went to the cash register with it still in my head where, lo and behold, the clerk was a beautiful young girl named Ronda! I thought it was the weirdest coincidence, I had to tell her, "I was just listening to a song with your name." and she smiled and said, "I hear it every year on my birthday."

Well, as a Rhonda, I love it. I don't hear of a lot of people named that and maybe that's why I like it so much. As far as kids picking on it when I was little, the only one anyone could come up with was Rhonda-Honda. Big deal. And my nickname is Ronnie. Not too bad. Hope this changes some minds about naming someone in a new generation. Call her Rhonda!

Rhonda Fleming (born Marilyn Louis), stunningly beautiful American actress. Possibly the original Rhonda.

There is a character from the cartoon TV series, Hey Arnold! called Rhonda Wellington Lloyd.

I'm a bit skeptical of the idea that Rhondda, either in terms of the place name or the particular feminist, was an influence on this name, because since the very beginning the spelling "Rhonda" has been the one used for girls, and "Rhondda" has been practically non-existent. If the name was originally intended to honor a place or person named Rhondda, surely some of the early examples of women with the name would have that spelling. :)

This is my mother's name, it fits her so well, and it's truly beautiful except I don't like the way it reminds me of the name Ronald, which I hate.

For some reason this name reminds me of an overweight girl, that's friendly, cheery and dark haired.

Actually it's been in use since at least 1844 in the UK, when it was given to someone in Essex.
