So, its pronounced like [name_u]Noah[/name_u].
But its feminine.
Many people would assume its derived from the name [name_u]Noah[/name_u], with the ending “h” dropped. And while there is a female [name_f]Noa[/name_f] in the [name_m]Christian[/name_m] bible, I much more prefer the other origins of the name.
It is a common girl’s name in Japan meaning “my love.” And in Hawaiian, means “freedom” or “light.”
My perception of the name? It reads weird. I don’t know how I feel about the three letters. My brain wants to say Nwah.
But be still, my heart, do I ever think its cute.
What do you all think?
