  • "I too am named Nakia. Nakia Miale. For the longest time I didn't like my name as I thought it was too unsual and brought me unwanted attention as a professional. But I have since come to adore who I am and the name that was bestowed upon me! I now know that there's power in a name, in my name! Without even knowing it, my mother blessed me with a name that means (UNCONQUERED-greek) and (FAITHFUL-egyptian). As I continue to grow as a woman and humanitarian, I have come to realize that no other name would've served to capture the very essence of who GOD has called me to be, faithful unconquered one!!"

  • "My name is NaKia and I absolutely love it...now. I've always had an obsession with Ancient Egypt, from when I was a little girl and only recently did I find out that I was named after the woman who was thought to be King Tut's mother, Kiya, one of the wives of Akenaten(sp?). The name NaKia means "pure and faithful", quite fitting for me, I must say. I am in the generation that had to endure the Chia pet, Kia cars and Nokia phones. I actually had someone call me Sprint once!! So I started doing the "your call cannot be completed as dialed" thing when he did that. I'm called Kia, Nikkie, or NiNi. Only recently have I asked new people to call me NaKia...I find the name to be quite nice to hear, lol." Apr. 29, 2010: Report as inappropriate

Yes, people constantly mispronounce and misspell my name all the time. My grandmother came up with my nickname Nikki which is what most of my family and close friends call me. I used to hate my name growing up because it was unique. Now that I am older I embrace the name. People always ask what nationality I am or tell me it's very pretty. I have met about 4 people with this name. I also know a Sakia, Tkeyah and Lanika." Jan. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

However, I'm sorry, but I do not give credence to your whole strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It would appear to everybody that your comments are really not completely justified and in simple fact that you are your self not even entirely convinced of your point. In any event I did appreciate reading by means of it." Mar. 17, 2013: Report as inappropriate
