- Comments and insights on the name Nieva
Nieva is a Spanish word meaning "Its Snowing". My husband said it one day as a calm winter snow started to fall. (He was studying a minor in Spanish in college). I asked what he had said and immediately commented it would make a beautiful girls name. There are few things through the dreariness of winter more beautiful than a hazy gentle snowfall. In the same way of course we see our daughter as gentle and beautiful. 7 years later when I became pregnant we decided this was going to be her name. We call her "Ava" for short since it is pronounced "Nee-Ava". Many call her Ava due to that names popularity. I feel glad to have gifted her with both a common and uncommon name so she can always decide what she prefers. We both had very common names and wished we had had something more unique. I love the meaning of Ava too as that is fitting of her. (Like a bird or Sweet melody). Her middle name is Aurora, like the beautiful lights visible in the northern lands where snow falls. It seemed fitting. Now in irony Princess Aurora is her favorite Disney Princess ha.
