I don't like Ramona. DH's aunt's name is Ramona and everyone calls her Mona. Makes me think of "moaner" (And she's not a pleasant woman to be around.)
I like Ingrid, though!
I love the name Ramona. What's wrong with the Quimby association? Those books were adorable, and she was a spunky smart little thing! (I also liked her sister's name, Beatrice!)
I knew an Ingrid in college, she was blonde and Swedish-looking, so it worked for her. :)
Since Ingrid can be a little hard to say (especially for a kid), I like Ramona Ingrid better than Ingrid Ramona.
But overall, I likes.
If it is a family name go for it. It's not really my style though.?
I do like Ingrid. I had a neighbor in high school named Ingrid, and she was tall, thin, and blonde, very swedish looking, so it worked on her.?
berryblndgirl:I'm not a fan of Ingrid, but I think Ramona is cute (even though it does make me think of Ramona Quimby).
Ditto this. I loved those books!
Ah! Ingrid Bergman is so beautiful! (And totally not entirely blonde!) Anyway, I think both names are lovely. I'm a big supporter of using family names, or otherwise honoring ancestors in the naming of new babies, so I'm excited to hear that you're considering a name like that! Yay!
And the Quimby association is totally something of our generation. Your daughter is likely not going to run up against that at all.
