Norma was the name of my twin sister, she went missing in 1919. I think Norma is a very classy, regal, and simple name. This name is quite uncommon today, so I think Norma won't be confused with another Norma, overall I give Norma a 10/10, it's a name that'll always hold a special place in my heart, due to my twin sister Norma. Thanks for reading :)
Love! Anyone heard of the movie called Norma Rae? My favorite of all time.
My Grandmother, who sadly passed away a few months ago was called Norma. She was a lovely person and I loved her dearly. While the name Norma does have good connotations for me, I am personally not keen on it as a name, and even my Grandmother wasn't keen on her name. It is extremely dated and it doesn't have many, or any, nickname options. The only ones that come to mind are "Norm" and "Normie", which don't sound very pleasant, in my opinion.

I don't know anybody else called Norma, and I would be quite surprised if I one day met a baby called Norma.
