Personal experiences with the name Nokomis: | Edit

I named my daughter Nokomis, it's a beautiful name that is definitely memorable,rich in history and not obscenely strange. We call her Noki for short.

I grew up in Nokomis, Fl and have always thought this would make a cute name and love how it means "daughter of the moon". I have it on my future baby name list but my husband doesn't really like it. I now live in Georgia and while in Ga I had a waitress at Olive Garden with the name Nokomis but it was spelled different.
