Derives from the Latin word for cloud.

It is not derived from the Latin word Nimbus which mean cloud, not gold. Nubia is said to be derived from the Egyptian Nub (gold), as the Egyptians obtained most of their gold there.

Sounds too much like 'newbie'. This is the type of name pretentious people who think Western culture is horrible crap would go for. If anyone would, that is, ha ha!

Sounds like a disease.

In the animated Disney Channel series, The Proud Family, Nubia is one of the Gross Sisters.

Nubia is ugly. It sounds like "newbie". It also sounds like an over-the-top ghetto name.

I love this name! I think it's got such a unique beauty to it. I couldn't see anyone using this name in the Western world, but I would love to see it used.

Personally, I think this is a very pretty name. It puts me in mind of regal Egyptian pharaohs, and the vast quantities of education and intelligence which goes with such a title. I think it is a name which would age well.

Sounds too much like nubile, which makes it a little awkward to give your daughter.

Tacky and extremely ghetto. This sounds like something Azealia Banks would name her daughter.

It's beautiful. Don't get the ghetto or trashy impression at all. It sounds elegant and regal.

I know a Lady (in Brazil) who wore the name Nubia. I always thought it ugly for a woman. I had no idea where it came from. I am very surprised to read about it. It is still ugly to me but, at least I know it comes from our ancients.
