Personally, I was a bit surprised that my aunt and uncle chose this name, but the more I think about it the more I've come to really like it. Her middlename is Helmine. I love the combination!

I love this name. I think it would be really cute for a little girl who has darkish hair with blue eyes.

This name is beautiful! I've been in love with it all my life. It's not very common in Ireland, and I have some family members called Úna, and using this name would honour them. I love the Irish song "Úna bhán" (fair Úna). My favourite verse from it goes:
A Úna, a ainnir, a charaid, 's a dhéid órdha,
A bhéilín mealdha nár chan riamh éagcóra,
B'fhearr liom-sa bheith ar leabaidh léi 'ga síor-phógadh
'Ná mo shuidhe I bhFlaitheas I gcathaoir na Trionóide.
(It's basically saying that the the singer would prefer being with his Úna than to be God.)

I love Úna. It's short, sweet and pretty. Perfect in a three-lettered way. I much prefer this spelling to Oona or Oonagh. I'd love to use this name someday, and I recommend it to everyone!

I personally am not very keen on the name Úna, as it doesn't seem so beautiful & sweet as other names. Úna is one of those names that just doesn't sound pretty or girly.

I prefer the name when pronounced "YOO-nə", though perhaps this pronunciation is more related to the Latin derivation from Unus, "one".

This is also the pronunciation used by veteran English actress Una Stubbs (b.1937).

Una är ett fornsvenskt verb som betyder trivas, vara tillfreds. Det spreds troligtvis till Storbrittanien av vikingar. Källa Institutet för svensk språkvård.

[translation: Una is an ancient Swedish verb meaning enjoy, be satisfied. It probably spread to Britain by the Vikings. Source: Institute of Swedish Language Planning. -ed]

Pretty, delicate. Una is one of the characters in L. M. Montgomery's book "Rainbow Valley" (which I LOVE). However, her name is spelled without an accent mark.

Short, but sweet. Like a lamb.

Una was also a character in John Steinbeck's East of Eden. She was lovely, but married an early photographer and moved to the Pacific NW where she died early.

I love how gentle and sweet this name sounds. Plus, it is also simple and has good history and no embarrassing nicknames.
