    Default Created a New Name - Tacky or Original?

    Hi all,
    I have been playing with a new name as there are so many Noah's and I was hunting for a soft N name but was wondering if you find it too tacky or just weird. Then spelling it to make it seem more 'classic' - I felt with h at the end it can pass for biblical?

    But for a boy am thinking it might be too feminine.
    Do you have an opinion?! And what would you suggest for a middle name with it? Thank you.

    Namaica or
    Namaicah

    Honestly, I saw the names down the bottom before I read your post and I assumed they were meant for a girl. Also, I don't think adding an 'h' makes it seem more biblical, I would more think that you were running with the recent trend of adding in extra 'h's to names.

    personally I am not a fan of making up names.

    Are you pronouncing it like Jamaica but with an N?

    Not my cup of tea.

    I thought it sounded African so I googled it. Namaica is a place in Africa and personally adding a H won't pass for biblical in my opinion.

    Here is a list and meanings of biblical

    It's not to my taste personally. I would spell it without the h.

    Before you use it I would ask yourself if you mind your child having to correct people in regards to spelling and pronunciation. That's what puts me off new names.

    Ouch! Fair enough. :-)

    It was actually a play on Micah and sounds Neh-my-ka.
    So depends on how you pronounce Jamaica.

    Maternidades I couldn't find it in the list you provided, but I did find Nehmaiah which is nice!

    Nehemiah is a biblical name and it is gorgeous for a little boy.
