    Honest thoughts on William Nova?

    We are expecting our first in a few months, and are having trouble finding a middle name option for favorite classic William. We have a very english sounding last name and I would prefer something a little more wild in the middle to make it interesting. What are your thoughts on Nova as a middle name option? Unique nature names as well as Scandinavian options are being considered too, due to my background.

    WDYT of William Nova?

    I've always seen Nova as a girl name. Maybe William Noah instead?

    I love William Nova! Although I've only seen it considered for a girl, to me it is a nature name and perfect in the middle spot, for either gender.

    @fearlessfirefly, thank you for your input. Unfortunately the combination of William Noah seems a bit too bland for my taste. Thanks for replying though!

    @scater thank you! I know of a little boy named Nova, so for me it has always been unisex as well.

    @greyblue your suggestions understand my vibe! I will enjoy running these by DH later today. Thank you for your feedback!

    I know a Nova, so it's all girl to me, sorry! Too feminine for my taste, but William Nova does flow really well.

    I've only heard of Nova used for a girl, but now that I'm thinking about it, I have no idea why it has to be thought of as a feminine name! Super cool sound and meaning plus is goes great with William. William Nova is a wonderful name!

    Nova sounds like a girl name to me.
