Comments and insights on the name Noa: | Edit

I absolutely love the name Noa for a girl. I think it's got a lovely sound and people might be skeptical because the male Noah is very famous in the bible- but Noa is also an original female name in the bible (one of zalephaheds daughters) who managed to change views during that time. I assume that a girl names Noa would be confident, beautiful, intelligent and outspoken. Love it!

Noa wears well nearly anywhere. Noa recently ranked #56 in Belgium, #40 in Spain and #12 in the Netherlands. And in Israel? She’s held the #1 spot since 2005.

This name doesn't appeal to me at all.

Me neither I dont like the name Noa it sounds like Moa.

Noa is a terrible name, and I feel bad for the girls who were abused by their parents by giving them this name.

Personal experiences with the name Noa: | Edit

My friends name is Noa, she is talkative and very funny

My name is Noa. I'm 12 and I absolutely HEART my name! It's so unique and uncommon to see a girl named Noa. This name fits perfectly for a tomboy type of girl like me too. Since very few girls are named Noa, It's a very slight chance that your child will be mixed up with another girl. People describe me as outgoing, talented, funny, popular, and chill. Noa is a unique girl name that no other girls really have in America.

^^Get over yourself. You're the quintessential spoiled white girl who tries to come across as a tomboy to seemcool.
^^ A) She's literally 12 and you're picking on her? Mature. B) I imagine you're the same person knocking confident women all across this website (and I'm going to comment whenever I see it because, come on. and C) how do you know she's white? What a weird thing to assume.

Meanings and history of the name Noa: | Edit

Noa is not the female version of the name Noah, and they are pronounced differently in Hebrew. Noa was one of the five daughters of the biblical figure Zelophehad, who died without leaving a male heir. Noa and her sisters fought for - and won - the right to inherit his property. She and her sisters are among the most influential and revered women in the Bible as a result of their actions standing up for what they believed was right (Numbers 27 and on), challenging even Moses on his interpretation of the law and then prevailing. It also means "movement" in Hebrew.
Noa is also claimed as a Japanese name, loosely translated as “my love."

The Urban Dictionary says that girls with this name are,
'A gorgeous, kind girl with amazing eyes and a nice ass. Funny, sensitive, sweet, caring, smart. That girl is awesome- she's such a Noa! '
