Personal experiences with the name Neve: | Edit

We named our daughter Neve because we drove to the hospital in the snow to deliver our little chilled out baby. She was almost Natalie, but she came out so relaxed and beautiful, we had to go with Neve. It really fits her. I get a lot of compliments on her name, especially when I explain it, but it's definitely uncommon enough that people think it's a little weird.
