Nona may seem an unassuming feminine name, but its Latin roots reveal a figure of far-reaching consequence. Named for one of the Roman Parcae (or fates), Nona stems from the Latin nonus, meaning "ninth." As one of the three personifications of destiny, Nona spun the thread of human fate onto her spindle, deciding who would be born or reborn again. Her name embodies that fateful ninth month when new life reveals itself to the world—forever establishing her as the goddess of pregnancy.
