Norasmomma - Ah I see. Momma in your name but mama in your signature.

Funny poll - it's true it's spelled a lot of different ways! We are also Spanish speaking at our house, so it's certainly mamA for us, too!

I say I'm a mama, but would also say momma on occasion I think. I have a lot of spanish-speaking friends, so we are all mamA. or sometimes mami.

Another Spanish-speaker here who agrees.

Plus, it just looks simpler and more phonetic to me than the other options.

Have you seen the updated user agreement yet?
