Comments for the name Noa


Comments for NOA (1):

The name Noa is not a form of the name Noah! Noa is a name for females, in the Old Testament Noa was the sister of Merav.

In the Bible Noa was not the sister of Merav, Michal was. Noa's sisters were Hoglah, Mahlah, Milcah, and Tirzah. They were the daughters of Zelophehad, who is mentioned in the books of Numbers and Joshua.

It's first mentioned in the bible on the moment that the land was divided between the sons. The father of Noa Zippora had no sons so they asked Mozes to give her fathers what should be his, otherwise his name would be vanished. Mozes agreed. The meaning is not certain but maybe it means see how moves a lot (I don't know the exact word in English for it).

My name is Noa. It's really, really popular for girls in Israel, I think it's number one, and that's annoying sometimes. But other than that, it's fine. And by the way, the only time it was mentioned in the bible, as far as I know, was as one of Zelophehad's daughters.

Noa is only for girls.

Very pretty. On a girl too!

Noa is a Hebrew feminine name, but is NOT a version of Noah the boy's name. The Hebrew letters are different. Noa means "quaking", "trembling" or "movement". Noah means "comfort".

This is the stage name the Israeli singer-song writer Achinoam Nini uses outside of Israel.

I absolutely love this name. I like how it can fit either a girly-girl, or it can fit the most tomboyish girl on earth.

The feminine form of the name Noa isn't derived from the name Noah. It was the name of the first entitled female heir in the Old Testament.

I love the sound of this name. I would name a son Noah or a daughter Noa. It would of course either be a son name Noah or a daughter named Noa, not both because it would be weird to have 2 kids named Noa and Noah.

I've read a manga called 'Ultra-Cute' and one of the two main protagonists is Noa.

If anyone would bother to read carefully, they would see that this is listed as the Hebrew form of Noah(2), which is a feminine name UNRELATED to the male Noah(1). Apparently Noah(1) is pronounced something like no-ahkh in Hebrew and Noah(2) is pronounced no-ah, so the gender confusion doesn't occur in the names' original language. But still, reading comprehension 101, people.

Haha. I like it. Still seems a little masculine to me though. :P

I find this a good feminine variant of the name Noah.
-- MirandaIrie  5/30/2011
The name Noa was given to 68 baby boys born in the US in 2012. Despite the spelling and the fact that it ends in a, I still think this name is way to masculine sounding to be used on girls.

Noa (נועה) is actually a female Hebrew name meaning movement. It is not related to the name Noah/Noach, which spelled in Hebrew is נח.
-- r310a5  1/1/2014
I strongly believe that this is the perfect, acceptable spelling for a girl, NOT 'Noah' as Noah should only be used for boys since it's a MASCULINE name. The female name 'Noa' has a lovely Japanese meaning too. ^^

This name for a girl?! What are people smoking?

Noah\Noa is very masculine sounding regardless of how you spell it. People say that "Noa" is from the bible. Yeah, ANOTHER made up excuse to give some poor girl a masculine name.
Use Nora\Norah for a girl or some other name similar to Noa\Noah that is actually FEMALE

It's beyond me how "Noa" is labeled as solely feminine. Not even unisex
Sorry but if you took another obvious male and changed the spelling, would that make the name alright for a girl?
People seem to be forgetting pronunciations. The sound of the name rather than the spelling.

Re Anonymous 12/26/14: although actually reading before typing might be too much to ask of you, see the above comments and take a step out of Bible Belt USA. Noa is not a variation of Noah, it is not a cutesy feminization of Noah. It is a legitimate Old Testament female name. In addition to being a common Israeli name, it means love in Japanese and is a common female name not only there but throughout much of the non English speaking world. Spelled just like that. Get a life, read a book, there is life beyond the US.

Re Anonymous 12/26/14: I agree with Anonymous User 1/3/2015. It may be beneficial for you in life to learn the facts before spouting nonsense. My baby name is Noa and Noey is her nickname. I hope you think about other's feelings next time you decide to spout off.
