I want to use some part of my mother name for a future daughter. Her name is Donna. I don't like it as it is, it is too old for me. I recently found out that Domina is a variant of Donna. Do you like it better, or should I find another name?

It's too close to Domino and in my opinion, Domina just doesn't sound feminine at all. I would keep looking! =) GL

Here are a few things I found that maybe you would be interested in?

Donae
Donelle
Dionna
Lonna

None of them are my favorite, but all of them are better than Domina, IMO

I really like Domina. Dominica or Donnalee are nice too. I'm not sure how to spell Donnalee but it is pronounced Donna-lee.

I think Domina is really cute, though! I would go for it!

Maybe Dawn? I like it as a middle name. Does your mother have a middle name? Maybe you could use a variant of her middle name. Domina makes me think of dominos too but on second thought you could always call her Mina. Domina "Mina" like Mina Suvari (sp?). I think Mina is really sweet.

It is a family tradition to use Mary as a middle name for oldest daughter, but I decided that I like Maria better.
Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I like Dionna, Donnia and Donnica the most.

I like the name Belladonna with nn Bella, but people have told me I can't use it as it is a drug. What do you think?

That used to be my favorite girl name as a teen. But they told me Belladonna was drug as well. However, if you're brave enough, go for it!

I suggest Danna.

Domino is actually a game, so I'd suggest no to use Domina.
