Alternatives to Nova

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]!

I really fell for the name [name_u]Nova[/name_u] as a middle name, but I didn’t realize how popular it was! This has really turned me off.

I’m looking for similar short names, if possible that are also celestial and/or spring-like. I’ve done a lot of research, but nothing that I have found stands out so far.

Thanks for all your suggestions! :slight_smile:

[name_f]Neva[/name_f]! I once knew a really sweet girl named [name_f]Neva[/name_f] in middle school. It’s such a unique sounding name and does sound similar to [name_u]Nova[/name_u]. [name_f]Nola[/name_f] or [name_f]Nora[/name_f] is also pretty.
