Neve Campbell's given name is not an Anglicized form of Niamh. It is pronounced to rhyme with Bev, not Steve, as Niamh is, and is her mother's maiden name. It goes back to a Dutch or Flemish surname meaning "nephew."

Really pretty name; easier than Niamh, no doubt.

My name is Niamh (which I've always loved!), but since I live in the States often times people have a hard time pronouncing it. For people who just can't get it, I tell them to call me Neve ("nev", like Neve Campbell, the actress) instead. I like Niamh better, but Neve is also nice.

Hey, I just discovered it is spelled "Even" when backwards! Cool! I prefer the original spelling, Niamh, even though this is easier to pronounce.
