    Recently discovered: Neah

    Pronounced to rhyme with Leah and Mia. I came across this recently and it intrigued me. At first I thought it was a variant spelling on the Welsh name Nia, but looking it up it is actually a legit name in this spelling, a Biblical name meaning 'moved' or 'moving'. It's rare but has a familiar sound to it, and it's been growing on me.

    Anyone else like it, or am I alone in this one?

    I have loved it for a while. It sounds familiar while still being unique. If nothing else, it would make a beautiful mn.

    I love the sweet sound of Neah, but I much prefer the spelling Nia. Either way, it is unusual but still accessible.

    There is the issue of pronunciation. Since it is an unusual spelling, I would wonder "Is it NEE-uh or NAY-uh?"

    I don't like it. But I know a couple Linnea's with the nickname Nea.
