原I actually love my name, mostly because in the States it isn't very common and I really like that. Besides that, I feel that it is feminine and pretty. My name was supposed to be Roseanna, but my grandmother gave birth to a baby girl 4 months before I was born and she took the name, so I ended up with the name that was supposed to be my aunt's. We love this story!
原"On the eastside, that's where I met my Ramona/"I wanna go to a party," that's what she said/Lonely, that's what I been" the famous song, "Waiting for my Ruca" by Sublime. I personally think Ramona is a great name, and I love that song.
原I used to dislike the name Ramona, but now I love it! It sounds classy, sophisticated, and very pretty, and is cute for people of all ages. My favorite nickname for Ramona is Mona, although Nora, Nona, Roni, and Rae are other good nicknames.
原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! :-)
原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!
译我爱我的名字！我不能想象为什么任何人都会认为它是丑陋的。一个人不必喜欢它，但我实际上不能想到一个名字，我想更多。我爸爸听到这首歌（可能是由Delores del Rio唱的）在1949年的收音机上，在我出生前不久，说：“这是我想要的名字，如果宝贝是一个女孩。当时，这总是一个惊喜，一个女孩的名字和一个男孩的名字被选中。在听到这首歌之前，他一直在想着名字麦克辛。对任何Maxines没有进攻，但我感谢在他正在听的特定时刻播放的歌曲！也许如果我被命名为麦克辛我会喜欢这个名字，就像我喜欢我自己的名字今天！
原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.

原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.
原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!
原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.
原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.
原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!
原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.
