I can’t believe people actually call their children Bonnie. It sounds like bunny. Bonnie is way too cutesy and babyish and will not suit an adult. Where my friend lives, Bonnie means fat. About age 7 or 8 is the cutoff for this name. I don’t think anyone would take a doctor named Bonnie seriously.
My name is Bonnie and I really like it. One doesn’t hear it often and mostly all my friends shorten it to Bon, which I also like.
Cute name.
It sounds really cute!
Bonnie is the name of Allison Janney's character in the TV show "Mom", which debuted in 2013. Janney won both the 2014 and 2015 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role.
Little bit better than Connie, but still boring, nothing much interesting. There are many better names than this. I just don't see much appeal about this name.
Bonnie Neilson is a Canadian actress.
This is a cool name.
My name is Bonnie! I'm 17 and it is super, super rare that I ever meet anyone with the same name, which I like. I live in Australia where Bonnie is pronounced with more of an "O" sound rather than like "BAHN-ee". I really dislike the way Americans say the name. Like it just sounds like Barney coming from an American. However, where I live, I love the sound of my name. It's a classic, super gorgeous. Honestly, if I wasn't named Bonnie I would probably name my future daughter Bonnie lol.
My name is Bonnie and I strongly dislike it. I’ve never met anyone under 50 with my name and every time someone says it I cringe. I’ve thought about changing it for years. Most of my close friends and family call me Bon, which is better.
This name also belongs to one of the main characters in the book The Virgin Suicides. Bonnie Lisbon is one of the five Lisbon sisters.
My name is Bonnie and I love it! My mom wanted to name me after the character Bonnie Jean in the musical, Brigadoon, about a little town in Scotland. Dad said I’d not be named after a movie character so I was named Bonnie Lynn. It’s a popular Scottish word that means pretty and I’m very proud to bear this name. My Grammie used to call us wee Bonnie lasses! It’s so nice to read so many positive comments. Thank you.
In my opinion Bonnie is one of the cutest names! I have a friend named Bonney and a relative named Bonnie, but it doesn’t matter how you spell it, it’s still adorable. It’s a name that you can age with too and also have cute nicknames like ‘Bon Bon’ or ‘Bon nae nae’ (the last one is my friend's nickname). This is just my personal opinion though. I don’t really think it works for a masculine (or just male) figure though.
I do not particularly like the sound of the name. It is weirdly pronounced. Bonnie. Just does not sound like the name of a woman. I love the name though because there was this really sweet girl when I was growing up- she was ten years or at least eight years older than I- she would be in her 50's now- and she was so nice so I loved her and began to love the name. It is very interesting that Bonnie means pretty in Gaelic as it also means pretty in Spanish- Bonita is pretty in Spanish. As I said phonetically I never liked the name but because of that sweet girl I loved her and her name.
"My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean."
The meaning of this name is shallow. It means pretty/sweet. Why not name your daughter Cutie? Bonnie could be a nice nickname, but please name you child something a bit more substantial.
My name is Bonnie Louise. Both my first and middle names are named after people from our family I love my name Bonnie because my dad gave it me it was one of his good friend's names and I love how it sounds when people hear my name they get excited because they haven't heard that name in a long time. It makes me happy to see people get excited about my name. I also had a friend named Bonnie in school, she was a good friend and when I hear my name being called I get excited because I love my name, my name is so cool because not every day you hear the name Bonnie.
It could be short for Bonita.
According to, there is one person in the U.S. named Bonnie Bonnie.
In 2018, 63 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Bonnie* who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 197th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.
Timeless, humble and lovable.
This name is just too plain and boring, not something I'd ever name my kid or a pet.
Pretty, like it's meaning.
Pretty. Old fashioned. Bit too cutesy, especially if it doesn't match the woman.
Does anybody else think of this name as masculine and not feminine?
All the Bonnies I met are kind and friendly. As a result, I have a good impression on this name!
More like a dog's name.
This is my name, and I like the meaning of it (which is good and beautiful). But I also like it because of part of the reputation that seems to go with it-- some people smile when they hear my name, like it's sweet. And when I'm getting to know people no one expects me to be anything but kind and innocent.

The cons are that I think some people hear it and equate the sweetness of my name to being naive and not knowing things, as well as kind of being bubble headed. And no one seems to think I could understand dirty humor. As if my name or my overall vibe is that I've been sheltered. I've also heard the pickup line "Oh, so your Bonnie? I'm Clyde." More than once.
The name Bonnie has been used for seven tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean. It will be used again in 2022.
There seems to be a lot of Witches with the name Bonnie. There was a Witch Bonney ('ey' spelling) in Massachusetts that was part of the Salem Witch craze. There is a Bonnie in the film, The Craft, who is a witch and also a witch character with that name in The Vampire Diairies. Never been a fan of the name though.

Bon-Bon's recolored counterpart, Bonnet, also appears exclusively in the Custom Night.

I've always thought this was a diminutive of some other name. Huh.
Bonnie King aka Miss Arrowette (or simply Arrowette), archer first appearing in DC Comics in November 1960.
Cute for a kid, yet mature enough to fit a grown woman, and it feels like that kind of name that could work on any type of girl. A bit to plain for me, though. I prefer names that stand out a little more.
Bonnie is a character in Telltale's The Walking Dead game. She is a playable character in the 400 Days DLC, and the only 400 Days character to come back as an actual large role in Season 2 and not just a cameo, as she is the only character who always comes with Tavia to Carver's camp no matter what choices you make.
It's kind of childish. One of those names that are good for a little girl, but no one older.
I'm from Australia and everyone I know pronounces it 'Bon-KNEE'
The only person who has said my name with the previous pronunciation was from Boston, USA and it made me shudder.
The only female name starting with the letter "B" That I actually don't mind and can tolerate. The name "Bonnie" has grown on me (: It's cute, yet ages well. This name deserves a comeback.

Bonnie is a (very) minor character in 'Catching Fire' (the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy).
Bonnie Raitt (born 1949 in Burbank, California) is a famous American singer-songwriter.
This is such a cute name, it reminds us of Bonnie from Toy Story 3 who is the cutest specimen alive on this planet in this universe on this very millenium!
Eminem has a song called '97 Bonnie & Clyde', and in another one of his songs, 'Stan', Stan says he wants to name his unborn child Bonnie.
I can't believe no one has mentioned the singer, Bonnie Tyler, yet! She has a husky sounding voice which was the result of a vocal fold surgery. Her most famous songs are "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "Holding Out for a Hero".
My mother thinks this name is ugly, but then again, her taste in names is HORRIBLE (she likes all the ugly trending names like Kinsley and Ryker).
Bonnie is a terrible name! It's way too cutesy to be used on a real person, even a little girl. Besides, it doesn't even sound like a real name, more like a nickname an overprotective parent would give to their spoilt little princess.
It is very sweet, but a little informal. I wouldn't use this as a real name.
Very adorable! Not sure if I would use it though.
I will always think highly of the name Bonnie because I know someone named Bonnie and she is sweet and hilarious and the name suits her well.
It's the name of one of the main characters in "Fun" played by Alicia Witt. Bonnie is really hyper liar who killed in an old lady for fun.
Bonnie is the name of a witch in L. J. Smith's vampire series: The Vampire Diaries.

And Bonnie is on the show, based on the book, The Vampire Diaries.
American-born British-based playwright Bonnie Greer (b. 1948).
I had my second daughter a year ago and could not think of a name that suited her, it took about four weeks to decide on Bonny. All the names my husband and I liked, just did not suit her. She was born HAPPY, every time someone looked at her they said "what a bonny baby" and it kind of stuck! I have had so many people comment on her name and say it's lovely and suits her so much.
Pronounced "BAWN-ee".
I like Bonnie for a girl and Bonny for a boy.
Personally, I've always preferred the spelling Bonny, but I still think it's pretty.
My name is Bonnie. Although I have hated it when people sing "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean" to me, and ask me "Hey Bonnie, where's Clyde?", I really like the name. Some people have told me it's supposed to be short for Jessica, but I doubt it.
Not Jessica. It has been used as an affectionate term but its use as a first name goes back a few hundred years. Margaret Mitchell popularised it but people incorrectly think its inception as a name started there, just like Scarlett, India etc.
There's a beautiful Scottish song called "The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond". It's very nostalgic, and captures the romantic spirit of the lost cause of Bonnie Prince Charlie, and the failure of the Jacobite Rising. The chorus is "O you’ll tak’ the high road and I’ll tak’ the low road And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye For me and my true love will never meet again On the Bonnie, Bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomond." Every time I hear this name, I think of that song.
Bonnie is the name of the head cheerleader in Kim Possible.
Very cute although it makes me think of singer Bonnie Tyler.
It's a term of endearment, an adjective but also a name and been used for hundreds of years. Taking Bonnie from uglier names like Yvonne or Bronwen or from the Spanish word Bonita is silly overkill although feasible I guess.
A bearer of the name was Anne Bonny (or Bonnie) (1700-?), a famous Irish pirate who disguised herself as a man and served under her lover, Captain 'Calico Jack' John Rackham with her comrade-in-arms Mary Read. Their ship was captured in 1720 and the men were hung, but Anne pled pregnancy, received a stay of execution and simply disappears from record.
The Bonnies I have known have been a bit pushy and driven. Not bad things but they tend to be very strong willed.

Bonny and Bonnie were unisex once. It's due for a big revival. If we have to endure Katie, Millie and Mollie in England, why not Bonny. It's not technically a nickname for anything.
Bonnie doesn't sound like an intelligent name, at all. It's too sweet, too fluffy, so much that it sounds like a food or a pet's name. I can see how this name may be okay at best many decades ago in older times, but modernly it just sounds ditzy.
Hey isn't this the name of that little girl who got murdered? Not to sound harsh; but I think it was Bonnie Jo, which is an adorable name!
This was an old friend of mine's name. I love the name but I have the feeling the nicknames can get a little ridiculous, I guess because it already sounds so much like a nickname. It's kind of hard to shorten something already short.
I can't think of a sweeter, fresher or more charming name. I'm worn out from all the Rubys, Lilys and Millies. Let's see some more of Bonnie please.
I love this name, it's tremendously cute and sounds like the name of a sweet girl. However, I do wonder if it's a bit too cute for a grown-up. I actually don't think it would sound totally crazy on boys and men either, assuming you use it on a cool guy who has the right look and personality for it. But using it for a boy could really be risky.
I'm 15 and my first name is Bonnie. I meet people who love it and think that it is beautiful, and most people my age think that Bonnie is just for old ladies but it's not! My mother named me after Bonnie in Gone With the Wind.
Bonnie is my legal name. I must admit, I don't like it all that much, which is why I call myself Pippin. Though, once, a teacher of mine gave me the nickname of Bonzai from it. Guess it's not that bad.
Bonnie seems excessively cute but is one of these kinds of names that still ages really well. I know Bonnies of all ages although most seem to think it an archetypal old lady name which sits fine with me.
This is a nice name, but it kind of reminds me of bon bons.
Actress Bonnie Bedelia is a somehow famous bearer.
In England it's pronounced BON-EE.
There is a famous Japanese singer known as Bonnie Pink, aka Kaori Asada. She's really beautiful.
This name has really started to grow on me. It is pretty, feminine and delicate. Very nice sounding.
Actress Bonnie Langford bears this name. She skated in the show Dancing on Ice and came third. Also if you look hard on the Comic Relief vid of 500 Miles (The Proclaimers & co) you'll see Bonnie Langford dancing on it. She's next to Bob the Builder.
French actors Ludivine Sagnier and Nicolas Duvauchelle have a daughter Bonnie (b. 25 March 2005).
This name is just too cute!
Bonnie is such a pretty name. It will never seem too old for you or too young.
This is my name. I really like it, and think it is very nice name. I have met only about two other Bonnies. I get nicknames like Bon, Bonza, etc.
Adorable. Lovely sounding, soft, great meaning. What's not to like?
There's the song _My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean_.
Bonnie Hunt is the mom in Cheaper by the Dozen movies.
Famous bearer is Bonnie Bianco, an American singer and actress who made an impressive career in Italy and Germany in the 1980s. In 1983 she landed the female leading role in the mini TV series "Cinderella 80."
Believe it or not, my great-grandfather's name was Bonnie. He's my Dad's grandfather. Ever since I learned he had a woman's name, I wondered if the kids he went to school with made fun of him because of his name.
Bonnie is an okay name. I wouldn't use it for a daughter especially since the dog we adopted 5 years ago is named Bonnie. Our dog is 7 now.
"Bonnie" might be ultimately derived from the Middle French "bon", but the Scots Gaelic word "bàn" ("fair"/"pale") could have played a part, and especially since many English speakers pronounce Bonnie "BAH-nee". Still, it does seem like a mere coincidence and they're probably just sound-alikes.
It is starting to grow on me. Over New Years weekend my mum and I were talking names and she thought Bonnie Bradbury sounded lovely together. I think it's nice, a name I'd never really given a second thought.
This name is awesome! And I don't pronounce it bah-nee, it's Bon-ee!
There was Bonnie Parker, half of the famous robbery couple Bonnie & Clyde (played by Faye Dunaway in the film from 1967).
I think Bonnie is a nice name, even though it sounds more like something you would call your dog than a person.
Bonnie was the name of Scarlett and Rhett's daughter in Gone With The Wind.
This is my first name. My middle name is Victoria, so it's not exactly one I could use. But I find my name to be really unusual and it irritates me because I think: if my parents wanted to name me something different, it could have been much more creative. My brother's name is Frank so I think I was the lucky one.

People "shorten" my name to Bon, BonBon and Bonza (I'm from Australia.)
Famous bearer Bonnie Wright, a young British actress.
Bonnie is also a Scottish name meaning "beautiful." I think it's a pretty name!
This is actually my first name. It's special, but I think it sound too much like "Barney" or "bunny". I wish I could use this as my middle name and use "Misty" or "Amy" as my first name.
