Nona

Nona comes from Latin nonus meaning "nine" in reference to the ninth month of a woman's pregnancy. In Roman mythology, Nona is one of the three personifications of destiny (known as the Parcae, or the Fates). The Parcae are the Roman equivalent of the Greek Moirai. Nona is the equivalent of Clotho, who spun the thread of life.

Nona also comes from the praenomen (personal name) Nonus, also meaning "nine" and used for a ninth-born child or a child born in November. From what I could find, it doesn't seem to have been a very popular name.
