Need a non-generic one syllable middle name for Nova
Our baby is due New Years, and we have Nova as the frontrunner on the list. We do one-syllable middle names for our girls, but I am looking for something with more wow-factor this time around. We already have used Rose, Mae, Grace, and Jane--but would like to give a little more wow factor to Nova, if indeed it could be done in a single syllable.
Anyone got something that could really ZING for Nova? My DH is wanting to use Jean, but I just cant help but think there has to be another choice that might be more hip!!

Rose, Mae, Grace, and Jane are all so comfy-classic that I worry if you go with something too bold, it will seem out of place. Nova herself brings such style and pizazz to the name that she doesn't necessarily need a kick in the middle, but I see your dilemma. Here are some one-syllable options to consider:
Nova Belle - Belle is feminine and glitzy. I don't know if I love it with Nova, but it has a moderate punch appeal to me.
Nova Clare - Clare is soft and elegant like Rose, Mae, Grace, and Jane.
Nova Lou - This has the same nickname-y feel as vintage Mae. As does Kit above it, actually.
Nova Lux - This is perhaps the boldest option on my list.
Nova Pearl - Pearl is the ultimate in vintage snazzy appeal! She stands out but has the same feel as Rose, Mae, Grace, and Jane.
Best of luck!

I am sorry if there are any repeats: Here is what I would do with Nova (which I love!!!!)
Nova Quinn or Nova Lark* love lark
Nova Jay (blue jay) or Nova Kyle
Nova Reese/Rhys or Nova Bryn
Nova Bree* love bree or Nova Kay (old fashioned and under-used female choice)
Nova Ace (then you could call her novice as a pet nn ??) (I only thought of ace b/c I like it as a nn for Candace)
Nova Harp or Nova Ruth* love ruth lately
Nova Kai (has many different meaning depending on its origin)
Nova Bay or Nova Quartz* (clear quartz is gorgeous and one of the most powerful crystals)
