Gorgeous but sounds a bit like “nada”, Spanish for “nothing”.

Please tell me another person spells it Nadyah? Or is that just how mine is?

I am having a girl and I want a unique name for her and Nadia is the most beautiful name ever. It has an incredible and fascinating history behind it. I love it.

Nadia Comăneci is a Romanian former gymnast who, at the age of 14, became the first gymnast in Olympic history to be awarded the perfect score of 10.0 at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. She would eventually go on to receive six more perfect 10s in Montreal as well as three gold medals. Four years later, she won two gold medals at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. She won a total of nine Olympic medals and four World Championship medals during her career. Comăneci is one of the best-known gymnasts in the world and is credited with popularizing the sport around the world. In 2000, she was named as one of the Athletes of the 20th Century by the Laureus World Sports Academy. She has lived in the United States since 1989 and is married to American Olympic gold medalist Bart Conner.

I absolutely love the name Nadia. It's so simple yet elegant, it's easy to pronounce and it is not too common here in the UK. My best friend's name is Nadia and it suits her really well.

Spelt backwards it's Aidan, and Diana is in there too.

My name is Nadia. I've never really liked my name because no one ever had the name Nadia, but the comments on here really boosted my self esteem thanks.

Very pretty name. I love how it's unique and uncommon while not crossing the line of being trashy or distasteful. Nadia just rolls off the tongue quite nicely and is phonetically appealing.

The Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci is famous because at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, when she was 14 years old, she became the first female Olympian to score a perfect 10. Nadia won three gold medals that summer, and her picture was on the cover of Time Magazine on the 2nd August 1976. Her fame gave the name Nadia a boost in popularity in the USA - in 1975 there were 84 babies born named Nadia, but in 1976 the number had shot up to 585, making it #360 on the chart. According to the SSA’s baby name list there were also 9 babies born in 1976 named Nadia's surname, Comaneci.

A very pretty name. It is short and simple, but beautiful. It sounds sort of foreign to me, but that's just my opinion.

I love the name Nadia. I used it for a story before, but my sister kept saying Narnia. She can't get over how much they sound alike... but I still like it.

This is a very pretty name, but it's a bit harsh and I wouldn't name my child Nadia, but I'd be delighted to meet a little Nadia.

I have lived with this name for 16 years and never have been teased about it (except I get called Velma), so yeah, it's an awesome name.

I've lived with this name my whole life. So if you want an inside view of what it's like, it's been wonderful ;). I was never made fun of in grade school, never given a nickname, never ridiculed. I'm proud of my name and proud to share it.

I think Nadia is a pretty name in itself, I just don't like how it sounds like "nausea".

This is a very beautiful name, and I would consider it for a girl if I ever have one. I also think Nastia is a pretty name, too. I love the way it's pronounced, very soft, delicate and sophisticated.

I like this name, especially the meaning. But I think it would better suit a non-white girl or a girl with an accent, because it feels exotic.

Does no one remember the foreign exchange student, Nadia, from the American Pie movies? It is an unfortunate association for such a pretty name.

I know a sweet, beautiful 1 year old named Nadia, so this name is linked with cuteness in my opinion. ;)

This name sounds like nada, (NAH-DAH) which means ZERO OR NOTHING. There is a story I've read called Nadia the Willful and Nadia is the main character. This name is pretty, I think.

I like this a lot! When I first saw it, I thought it was pronounced Nuh-dee-ya, so that's how I prefer to pronounce it. It sounds weird to me when people say it another way.

Nadia is a lovely name on its own, but the double name Nadia Rose also sounds lovely. But then, almost anything with Rose sounds nice - Julianne Rose, Martina Rose, Eleanor Rose...

What a gorgeous name. It will be my first daughter's middle name. She will be Anastasia Nadia N. Her initials will spell Ann, which is my grandmother's middle name. I wanted to honour her without actually using the name Ann, as I think it's very boring.

"Nadiya" is a name almost the same as "Nadya" and "Nadia".

I pronounce it "NAH-di-ah" or "NAH-dyah". This is a pretty name, although I was introduced to it in a grim way; the legendary French singer, Edith Piaf, as a young woman in the Paris underworld, was acquainted with a gentle, naive girl named Nadia who was forced by her "lover" to become a prostitute and not long after drowned herself in the Seine. I still associate this name with the pretty, fair-haired, tragic ingenue that Piaf befriended.
