- Comments and insights on the name Bonita
My name is Bonita and I can't decide if I hate it or not. Every single time I meet someone new I have to almost teach them how to say it, and then they always think I'm from Spain, which I'm not. It's also a common thing for a lot of the guys I know to talk about because it means 'beautiful', but that never flatters me - it's just pure embarrassing! The only reason I like my name is because I think it's different and it sounds cool ... after you teach everyone to say it, of course.
