Ramona or Mabel? And Middle Names...

We love the name [name]Ramona[/name] and are leaning towards [name]Ramona[/name] [name]Lee[/name], but I feel like I need a back-up or two (also hate the nick name [name]Mona[/name], which is problematic). The only other name my husband likes is [name]Mabel[/name], which I think is cute too. Any additional suggestions would be welcome, as well as a middle name for [name]Mabel[/name].

[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Babette[/name] - [name]Babette[/name] is considered a relic on Nameberry, but I love relics.
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Carmen[/name] - oooh, so early [name]California[/name]!
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Faye[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Jacqueline[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Kaye[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Kit[/name] - sassy
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Marin[/name] ([name]Marin[/name] rhymes with [name]Karen[/name] in this case) - lately I love the name [name]Marin[/name].
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Mavis[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Sage[/name] - I love this one
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Tansy[/name] - cozy

[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Lee[/name] (although I would spell it [name]Leigh[/name]) is a sweet name and I always thought [name]Rae[/name] was a cute nickname for [name]Ramona[/name] (I don’t like the nn [name]Mona[/name] either).

[name]Mabel[/name] is not my favorite, but I see the charm in her. Middle name suggestions for [name]Mabel[/name]. . .

I tried to give you a wide range of styles for a middle name for baby [name]Mabel[/name]. Good luck!

Thanks, Millikate! I love your ideas of [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Kate[/name] and [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Skye[/name]!

[name]How[/name] about [name]Roma[/name] or [name]Romy[/name] for a nn for [name]Ramona[/name]? If you give people a cute nn to use, they probably won’t start calling her [name]Mona[/name].

I love [name]Ramona[/name] and [name]Mabel[/name] is one of my favorites. :slight_smile:

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone! [name]Jemma[/name]- I love [name]Romy[/name] as a nickname! You totally made the name for me :slight_smile:

Agree. I was moaning at the nn [name]Mona[/name], but [name]Romy[/name] is a cute nn for [name]Ramona[/name]. Completely changed my perspective of the name.

[name]Ramona[/name] is a great name and the nn [name]Romy[/name] is super cute. [name]Romy[/name] is also a nn for [name]Rosemarie[/name].

[name]Ramona[/name] always makes me think of [name]Ramona[/name] [name]Quimby[/name], one of my favourite book heroines when I was young. Her middle name was [name]Geraldine[/name] and she had an older sister called [name]Beatrice[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]Romy[/name] as a nickname!

I love the [name]Ramona[/name]!

Middle names I think sound nice are

[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Layne[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Jade[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Gray[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Ashby[/name]

I love the name [name]Ramona[/name] also and think it’s a good choice because it’s so underused! I am one of the few who likes [name]Mona[/name]! We actually have [name]Mona[/name] on our name list!
To each their own though!
So I like everyone’s suggestion of [name]Romy[/name]! Also, I like what you originally came up with, [name]Ramona[/name] [name]Leigh[/name] (with that spelling!)!!! Good job!
I just can never like [name]Mabel[/name] because I knew a bulldog named [name]Mabel[/name], and I also think of [name]Janine[/name] Garrafalo when she did the voice over as [name]Mabel[/name] on “Mad About You”!
