A beautiful name of worldly origins, Neva is most commonly derived from its Finnish and Celtic roots. While the name Neva carries a natural and sweet sound, its Finnish meaning “swamp” and “bog” is not too far behind. While some may see swamps as mysterious spaces filled with water, many are welcoming homes for wildlife to slow down and grow. Neva is also related to the Celtic translation “white spirit,” making this name both interesting and pure.
