    Thoughts on this name!

    Hi!

    I was wondering what your thoughts are on the name Nevy?
    I heard it at my boyfriends family reunion and I never heard it before but surprisingly I like it. I am not expecting, but curious as to what other people thought of this name!

    Also, I think it would be a cute name to be called with a short middle name such as Nevy Rae or Nevy Mae.. what are your thoughts?!

    I would think of it more as a nickname, maybe for Genevieve. Or a cute pet name for Neva or Neve.

    I have heard it as shortened form of the word nephew. I have heard people or read in books people crooning to the baby "Ah look at my cute little Nevy. Isn't he sweet?" I have never heard of it used as a name.

    Now that I think about it, it is probably a shortened form of Nevaeh, which is Heaven spelled backwards. There are mixed views of this name.

    Neither of these are my taste.

    Good Luck!

    I agree with pp that it sounds like a nickname for Genevieve or Neaveh or something else.
