Comments and insights on the name Nevada: | Edit

Because the name ends in an "a", it is typically a female name, but I have heard of a few people who named their boy Nevada.

Personal experiences with the name Nevada: | Edit

I've named my daughter Nevada. Like the state, we pronounce the a's as in cat. Of course, everyone outside of the state says the middle "a" as "ahh". We've gotten mixed reactions to the name, but we think it's as normal as naming your daughter "Georgia" or "Dakota" "Virginia".
