- Personal experiences with the name Monna: | Edit
I've spent my entire life correcting people on the pronounciation of my name (very frustrating as a child, but now it's a conversation starter that I appreciate). I usually help people out by saying, "It's like Donna, but with an M." That typically clears up any questions.

- Meanings and history of the name Monna: | Edit
My mother named me after an elderly great-aunt who was Irish, so she has always claimed it to be Irish in origin. I also think that it could mean 'my lady' in French and Italian with reference to the Monna Lisa (where Monna is the shortened version of madonna as opposed to being spelled Mona in English).
