  1. for my first daughter (second baby) we had bonnie chosen for her for a full year before we were even pregnant. we chose bonnie based on someone i knew as a child, and bonnie hunt, both of which are (or seem to be in the case of bonnie hunt) some of the sweetest ladies we’ve ever known, so bonnie must be a good luck charm! and as luck would have it, my bonnie’s birthday ended up the day after the bonnie i knew as a child! we paired it with elise – the name of my FIL’s mother (which was elise or elisa).

  2. I’ve loved the name Bonnie for years. It’s fun, yet classic, and you don’t meet many Bonnies these days. Her middle name is Jean, which is also my middle name, and goes back to at least my great grandmother. Had to keep the tradition alive!

  3. We discovered I was pregnant and couple days after started to each list names in order to compare.
    Bonnie was on both mine and his list ! That was incredible, so we didn’t think twice and just went for it 🙂
    We wanted a name that felt soft, like someone you would want to hug. But that at the same time showed personality, like someone you didn’t want to mess with. Bonnie represented that for us… A strong woman, with a sparkling character, who would be a good shoulder to cry on.

  4. For our 2nd born, we wanted something that was a good name like her older sister (“HannahGrace”).
    I remembered how much I loved the name “Bonnie” and joined it together with “Joy“. “BonnieJoy” fits our 2nd baby girl to a tee!!! Both of our girl’s names have no spaces,no hyphen, and have 2 capitol letters for their 1st names. We love our girls and their names… we are constantly receiving compliments for having such pretty names.
