I dont need a nickname because my name is unique enough. NAKIA is a pretty cool name and I'm proud to have it." Aug. 9, 2015: Report as inappropriate

Their pool has NAKIA at the bottom, makes we wanna go there. My family is African-American, Irish and Native-American heritage so I thought that validated my name being Native American lol..But wow..I do like the fact that its not a widely known like John and Tim and etc. And I get the misspellings too Nikia, Nokia, Nekia...Nikita (Russian).

  • "Hola! My name is Nakia, I am female and My mother told me she named me after a lady how had straigh honor roll... but I think that was only to make me believe that I should live up to that name. She was originally going to name me Eden, but my father and his mother didn't like it. So now, My name is Nakia and my middle name is Eden. I hated my name but all I've gotten so far were compliments. I used to think it was Russian and it meant something completely different. But my music teacher who's Russian said that "No, Nakita is Russian" So I went on a hunt to search for the meaning. Being as how much I love Bollywood, I was amused to find out that in Arabic it means faithful and Pure, the same thing in Egyptian and somethind along the lines of a brave warrior in Indian... don't know which language... or maybe that meant it for the movie that you guys were talking about. I've only found out about the movie I think today. Whenever I never paid attention in writing my name, I always wrote my name being Name because of the first to letters, lol! Yeah... I know... odd. I never knew about the Japanese thing or the Greek thing but I think I was too fustrated in not Finding my name written on things, like cups, pens, etc. I really hated being called Nikki, I'm usually called Kia because my family's from Belize. OR my uncle calls me Nikki Nik,lol! And no... no one usually knows how to pronounce it. But I also just go with Na-Kee-Ya. My old peruvian spanish teacher pronounced it Knock-Ya,lol! but whatever. It's been amusing to find only two other people with my name." Jun. 15, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Yeah...Hello Nakia family! As a young girl, I cried about why my mom gave me a name that NOBODY could pronounce. Then I went through a phase where it was just my name. Finally at 16, I learned to appreciate it's beauty and love it's uniqueness! Pronunciation/spelling is ALWAYS a problem, so I've just learned to say it then spell it...lol! But it was kinda fun to watch people struggle with how to pronounce it and then I would just tell them." Jun. 2, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hello to all, My name is Nakia as well and I was born in 1975. My parents left it up to my grandmother to name me before I was born. I was going to be named after my grandfather, Benny and was going to me called "Bennie". I guess the spelling with an "ie" was to make the name seem more feminine.

  • "My name is Nikia, and I actually always hated the name. I'm female, born May 28, 1999, and still haven't come to love it yet. It's not the fact that people say it wrong or misspell it, it's the fact that I constantly get made fun of for it. Most of the time it's just for fun, not so much for bullying, but it can really get annoying. The name gets compared to Nokia, Ikea, and so on and it's so frustrating. Some day maybe I'll be able to love my name, but for now, I think it would've been best if my parent gave me a more common female name." Mar. 19, 2016: Report as inappropriate

Nakia is pronounced Nar key a and yes it is always mispronounced. He belongs to the Ngati Tuwharetoa Tribe and his sub tribe is Tutamahuta (Maori) in New Zealand and we have not come across this name here as yet. Nakia often gets called Narks, Nakaia, Ngakea. We are very proud of the name Nakia and shocked to see how common it is.

  • "My name is Nakia. I was born in 1977. I am a male. My mother & Father agreed on this name as they heard it from the TV show by that name. I had a hard time with this name growing up. No one seemed to be able to pronounce it. This caused me to go by Kia for a few years. Later I started to go by Nick, and that is what I go by today. I do however respect the name my parents gave to me, but do not use it often. I have noticed that the name is being used more by males today, but mostly females. I have never met another person with my name. Not many can say that. It's cool to hear so many with this name, and there experiences in life." Sep. 25, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I personally like it. There is some difficulty with with pronunciation but it usually not that bad. I hate the Nokia and Kia car comments. I've also noticed that sometimes older people add a d so it sounds like Nah-key-dah." Dec. 12, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "People always use my name as a joke when they're talking about the cell phone or the car Kia. Everyone's like, "Hey, your name reminds me of the phone. I'm going to call you Nokia!" and in my head i'm thinking, "No!" People have trouble pronouncing it sometimes, but most people get it off the bat. Other than all the bad things, a lot of people compliment me on my name and I personally like it." Aug. 7, 2005: Report as inappropriate
