US Popularity:3923
Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Norm, rule; Northman
Norma is a girl’s name of Latin origin, thought to have been created for the titular character of the 1831 play by Felice Romani. Translating to “norm” or “rule,” this classic moniker is anything but boring. Along with its Latin roots, Norma has a history in Germanic culture. Being the feminine equivalent of the name Norman, it also translates to “northman”—ideal for fans of Vikings. Norma might also be best recognized as Marilyn Monroe’s birth name, Norma Jeane Mortenson, later Baker. This name offers a funky vintage flair, short and snappy enough to hold its own.
