Origin:American
Meaning:US Navy
Usnavi — pronounced OOS-nah-vee — is slightly Dominican in its origin, but now is proudly American. This boy’s name was made popular by the musical, “In the Heights” by Lin Manuel Miranda. It was inspired by an immigrant from the Dominican Republic seeing a US Navy ship, mispronouncing it, and incidentally creating a new, gorgeous name.
