I've always love my name I wouldn't change it for nothing. When I meet new acquaintances they always say that's "a pretty name". I've always know what it meant because I was curious when I was young how come my mom picked it.

I named my daughter Nova, after my great grandmother who was cherokee. It's a beautiful name and the meaning fits.

Funny, because without knowing its origin or even if it was an actual name, I came up with it on my own and always thought it would be a lovely name for a girl. In searching through Native American names, I found that it really does exist and that others love it too. What a beautiful name! I would love to come across a little girl with this name
thank goodness

My husband is dead set on the name Nova (except I prefer it spelled Novah). I looked in books and could only find the Latin meaning "new," and I'm glad to find here it means something more interesting.

I named my five year old daughter, Nova. Her father is an Australian Aborigine, and I was inspired to name her Nova after Nova Peris, who is an amazing indigenous Australian athlete. My Nova is beautiful, and she really does actually chase butterflies! :o)
