I love Rowan, but that spelling is terrible. I think oona is beautiful, too. I love the suggestion of Rowena, too - but not the way they say it in the Harry Potter movie, lol., Row-enn-ah, not row-een-ah.

Oona... pronounced Una....in latin it means one and this is our first child...in gaelic it means lamb or queen of the faeries :) just to let everyone know i am slightly hippy so this is why i like these types of names as well. Rowynn I know is spelled different but the reason for that is because Rowan or Rowen is a boys name and i wanted to make it for a girl...plus i didnt want it to be spelled the same as a potential male classmate someday :)

Quoting pilot Jess:" Oona is neat, I've never heard it before but I like it. Rowen is overdone, IMO."

This is how i felt as well...either way whatever we choose i like them both i just prefer the uniqueness of Oona :)

Rowan is a nature name making it unisex.




I hardly ever hear Rowan but when i have it's been on a girl.
Spelling it that way doesn't make it more girly, it makes it incorrect.

I think its a little silly to call it incorrect just because it is spelled a non traditional way. Names are always open to personal interpretation, thats what makes them a name! :) I have always gone more of the nontraditional route on things...I mean I am not going crazy and naming her a symbol or anything but I feel that just because everyone does something one way doesnt make it the "right" way. I may have taken a different road in the spelling of Rowynn but I feel the destination was the same! :)

My sweet 14 month olds name is Rowynn Olyvia! I knew that Rowan was more of a boy spelling so I changed it up a bit. Obviously I knew I didn't make it up but I hadn't seen it spelled this way before until now! I'm partial to the name so I say go with Rowynn!
