“Heaven” spelled backward, this divine name has a spelling worthy of the Bible but origins that are much closer to home. In 2000, Sonny Sandoval, the lead singer of Christian rock band P.O.D., named his daughter Nevaeh. Today, Nevaeh is securely positioned in the top 100 girls' names, an American success story of reinvention. Some parents have opted to give their daughter the slightly altered spelling Neveah.
