Novalee (Dongle Mailbag)

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on May 26, 2015

Apparently, according to a few websites it’s an American modern name combining “nova” (which means “new” in some unknown language) and “lee” which is supposed to mean “field” but I can’t find a language where that actually holds true. So yeah, “New Field”. What a terrible name.

Well, nova means fresh in Latin and new in Portuguese. And lea is an english word meaning field. So, it does – sort of – mean “new field”.

But it’s still an awful name.

Has anyone else noticed that this is awful close to “No va leer” which is Spanish for “She isn’t going to read?” That’s a little too close to what is probably going to happen to this child.

No va a leer actually, but still a good point.

Spanish. The “unknown language” is Spanish. “No vas” means “no go,” or “will not go.”

I like that name but I heard it in a movie.

“You don’t go” actually. “No va” is ” doesn’t go.” “Will not go” is “No irรก” In spite of all this, Novalee is still a stupid attempt at a pretentious sounding name.

So long as she remembers to charge five dollars each time she gets ploughed, New Field will do just fine.
