Etymology & Historical Origin - Nevaeh

Nevaeh is a very recent name invention which is derived from the word “heaven” spelled backwards. This name is a perfect example of the power of pop culture in American society. The introduction of the name was made to young Americans on MTV in 2000 by way of Sonny Sandoval (from the Christian rock band P.O.D.) who announced the name of his daughter as Nevaeh. Since then, around 60,000 baby girls have received this name in America.

Popularity of the Name Nevaeh

The rise in popularity of the name Nevaeh in America is unprecedented. It entered the United States charts for girl names in 2001 at a respectable position of #266. It has climbed in significant jumps in the past 10+ years to its peak popularity as the 25th most common baby girl’s name in the country (2010). It’s hard to know where the name will go from here, although it seems to be leveling off in the upper end of America’s Top 50. Something hit a chord with young Americans after being introduced to the unusual name on MTV. The name has since spread on “baby-naming” message boards across the Internet (further propelling its popularity). The cleverness of spelling a word like “heaven” backwards may just be a fleeting fad. We’ll have to wait and see.
