Norma's not exactly fashionable as a baby name these days, AFAIK. It's a godsend for schoolyard bullies, though.

One famous Norma ... "Norma Jeane Mortenson" but she changed it to Marilyn Monroe. :)

Not only that, it's also the name of a discount supermarket in several European countries.

Of course we could, but small kids are not that strong minded and they can be very mean. Why should anyone put his own kid through the stress of having a supermarket for a name? Would I call my kid Aldi? I do not think so.

One could, but given some of the OP's previous threads and questions...

After a more in-depth review I'm going to have to suggest "Neurotic"

Wikipedia lists Normanna, Normina, Norma, Nora, and Mona as possible feminine forms of Norman.

Not really. Yes, Natalia (Natasha) is popular, but there are others, too. How about Nina, Nelli, Nadezhda (Nadya), Nonna, Nora - all of them quite well known, nothing exotic :-)))

I love Niobe. it is not so rare where I come from :) .

Like many ancient Greek names , it has a tragic story behind it (and since it is Monday and I am bored to death, and I love Mythology, you are going to hear it :lol: ):

 

Niobe was the daughter of Tantalus. She was considered the luckiest mortal mother as she had 7 sons and 7 daughters.

Among the Gods Leto was considered to be the "best" mother as she was the mother of Artemis and Apollo (both Gods of the 12 Gods of Olympus).

During a celebration for Leto, Niobe succumbed into Hybris when she stated that she is more fortunate that Leto, and has more reason for pride, as she had 7 as many children.

Well the Gods didn't like that obviously, especially Artemis and Apollo, so when they heard this, as Nemesis for Niobe, they killed all her children (Apollo the boys, Artemis the girls, according to some variations they spared her Meliboea, but most likely they killed them all).

Niobe fled to Mount Sipylus (now in Turkey) and she never stopped crying and wishing she was dead. The Gods understood that they had gone to far (no sh*t!) , their punishment was too harsh and she shouldn't live with such a grief, so they turned her into stone as part of Mt. Sipylus (I wouldn't call them exactly merciful, but anyway...).

If you visit Mt. Sipylus in Turkey it looks indeed like a weeping woman.
