Hi Jennifer,
I was messing around with names recently and came up with Nadaria, a mix of Nadia and Aria.

I was thinking it could mean hopeful melody and am now thinking about using it for my first daughter.

What do you think?

Thanks, Anna

Dear Anna,

I think Nadaria is a great name.  I really like when people create names, especially when they are easy to spell and easy to pronounce. If you think about it, all names were “created” names at one point, right?

If you love it, use it!

Sincerely,

Jennifer
