A rare name worn by a river and small town, Nashua comes from the Nashaway Native American tribe - the meaning can be translated as either “the place between two rivers” or “beautiful stream with a pebbly bottom." The sound is similar to darling Joshua, but allows for the trendy nickname Nash (now at #344 on the top 1000). Nashua could also be a unique alternative to number-one Noah or Elisha.
