Why is Nova such a bad name for a baby?

I don't normally like unique names, but it's kind of cute.

Do you like this name? If not, why?


ETA: I don't recall in my original post asking any of you what affiliation or what you think when you hear the name. I STRICTLY asked what you think about the name as a baby name. I don't know why I have to get extra. What I asked is pretty clear. NOVA means zilch to me. I live up North. Never heard of north Virginia written as NOVA before this post.

My aunt had an orange Chevy Nova in the 80s. So despite the fact that it has other meanings, I picture my aunt's car.

Thats the first thing I think of too! My parents had one when I was younger.

Overall, Im not a fan of the name...but its not horrible.

I like it but to me it's a super hero name, he's in the Guardians of the Galaxy and in The Ultimate Spiderman show. Thanks to my DD I know way too much about super heroes, lol.  It's not a name I'd choose but it's not my baby-If you're OK with it then use it.

I wouldn't name my daughter Nova, but I do think it's pretty.
