    I had my daughter in the 70's and named her Misty Dawn , what was I thinking? My daughter who is a school diagnostician has asked my why I didn't give her a "professional name" like Elizabeth etc...She tells everyone her parents were "flower children." At least it wasn't placenta...LOL...Sheila, RN, BSN ...L&D

    I worked for an insurance company and we had a claim come through for a "Female Smith". We called and asked the mother what the name of her child was and she asked what we had on the form. We spelled it out and she said "Yes, that's right.". She pronounced it "Fem-all-lee" LOL!!

    Quote from rn/writer
    With every Neveah I've come across, the name was pronounced, "Nah--VEY--ah" or Neh--VEY--ah." There have been quite a few of them on our postpartum and NICU units, including several sets of twins called Heaven and Neveah. Many moms realize that the name isn't original (maybe because you see the name all over the place now), but there are still a few who think they made it up.

    Neveah isn't a bad name. Heaven knows , you could do a whole lot worse (and many have). It's just that I think the name is going to be the Jennifer of this generation with four out of fifteen girls in a classroom looking up when the teacher calls out, "Neveah." :angel2:

    Too funny b/c DH and I were just discussing the name Naveah as our oldest sat making out his Valentine's for school. He has two girls in his class named Naveah AND a boy named Alec Naveah. Now, I just think that is incredibly mean; as you mentioned, it's going to be akin to having named the boy Jennifer!

    Oh, yeah, can't forget about the woman I went to nursing school with who wouldn't tell anyone what she was naming her baby girl. Well, I wouldn't have told anyone I was planning to name my February baby Harvest either.
