Okay, this has been bugging me for a long time now. Why do so many people dislike (or even downright hate) the name Nevaeh? I've heard nothing but trash talk about it. People say it's a "ghetto" name. Why? Because it's more popular among black people? What a horribly racist concept. I don't know the real reason, and I suspect that even if I knew, it still wouldn't make sense to me. Maybe some serial killer or pedophile with that name made world headlines or something. I dunno.
In my personal opinion, Nevaeh is one of the most beautiful girl names ever invented. For those who don't know, Nevaeh is "heaven" spelled backwards, and it is usually pronounced "neh-VAY-uh." How is that not awesome and beautiful at the same time? I mean, I can understand not caring for a particular name, but hating a name? Hate is a pretty strong emotion, and for something as inanimate and intangible as a name to arouse such an emotion, a greater justification is required than merely "it sounds like a ghetto name."
Is it because it's so common? So far, I have not yet crossed paths with a single person named Nevaeh. Shouldn't ultra-common names like John and Sarah be held in greater contempt? Nothing against any Johns or Sarahs reading this. I just mean that commonality is obviously not a good excuse here. You'd think that over-popular names like Aiden, Hayden, Jayden, Kayden, etc. would have worn out their welcome long ago, because who hasn't met at least half a dozen of these guys by now? If they're so beloved and universally accepted, then why isn't Nevaeh? If you're just tired of hearing it, fine, but then surely you must be tired of hearing every other over-hyped name too. I mean, be reasonable.
So tell me, what's so bad about the name Nevaeh? WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU PEOPLE???
