Nova is a name that has the feel of both newness, from his meaning, and great energy from being an astronomical term for a star that suddenly increases in brightness, then fades.
Now making something of a comeback (it climbed almost 100 spots between 2012 and 2013), and is now at 287. Nova had some reasonable degree of popularity at the turn of the last century and into the early 1930's. Nova Pilbeam, the star of one of Hitchcock's early British films, had family ties to Nova Scotia.
Other ties: the long-running science TV show and the finest kind of lox.
