Hello everyone! My name is Neikea. I was born in 1991. I have Cherokee heritage. I was named after a tv crime drama that was on right before my mother gave birth to me. She knew of my father's heritage & that's how my name came about. Even'though its spelled differently it is still pronounced Nakia.
Hey i am a Nakia toooo. We should all get together and have a party!! I hav trouble with people mispronouncing my name, but i also hav many nick names like: Nick, Nicky, kia, Erin(people had trouble remembering the name), and Nakai. And i hread it was Egyptain(is that how u spell it?): it meant fertility.
My name often misspelled and mispronounced. But for the most part, they tell me It's a beautiful name.
My name is Nakia and I LOVE my name! It means "unconquered" in Greek, "pure" in Arabic, and "pure and faithful" in Egyptian. Most common Nickname I get is "Nicki" or "Nakiki," or "Nicki-Pooh." It also helps that I know very few people with the'same name'so It's usually just me in a crowd of people with the name. Much easier identification.
Hello my name is Nakia, I am a guy, I was born in 1986 I was maned after the movie (correction) TV show, it was not a movie. The way I spell my name is NAKIA according to the TV show. However I gave my name to my daughter, I go by Key Key.
my name's nakia also, but i didn't know there was SOO Many people named nakia! i got my name from my aunt "Nakia". I kinda don't like It'since it was for boys, but i know It's a girl's name too.plus aot of people mispronounce my name too.
Hello to all the Nakia's. Well I was born in 1989 and my mom as well as other got my name from the movie Nakia. I hatwd my name growing up. I was like why did my mom have to give me this name. But unfortunately I was the only one in school with that name. I hated when people would try to pronounce it because they could never get it right. As I begin middle school there was a girl in my class name Nakia. I was so excited. When I got into high school there were 3 othe's name Nakia. There were guys and girls name Nakia. I havw come to love my name. I get compliments that I have such a beautiful name, now I have the nickname of Keke because some people still can't pronounce it.
Hello, my name is Nakia as well, I often get compliments. Being a female my mom always told me that it was a male name,(I was named after my grandfathe's uncle). As the years have passed I now meet more females with the name. Overall I enjoy it. I beli've that "Nakia" fits me well.
I am a Nakia and all through grammar and high school, my name was continuously mispronounced. It's not only until recent years were unique names are more common that I feel less of an outsider. Last but not least, I get tired of people asking me, where my parents got the name. Reality it, does it matter. The good thing is, most people at work know who I am by first name and my last name is rarely if ever needed.
I used to have to fight everyday because someone was saying that I had a girls name. I have grown to love my name though.
My name is Nakia and I know about three more girls named Nakia. Only one is spelled like mine. The othe's are Nakeya and Nakiah. But I love my name and I didn't have any idea that it was for boys! So Crazy!
My name is Nakia and I am female. My name is misspelled all the time! Like "Nikia" "Nikea" "Nickea" Ugh! People sometimes say it wrong too, like "Nah-keh-eye-a" i've met about two people with my name in elementary school. I, for the most part like my name, since not many people have it and it has such a nice meaning: Egyptian - Pure, Faithful, and in Russian - Unconquerable/Unconquered. Also, I do get lots of complements, and people tell me my name is pretty. Though, what's really annoying is that people will say "Do you have a Nokia phone/do you have a Kia car" >>;
For having a name with only 5 letters, people sure can mess it up. I got a few jokes about the car "Kia" or the "Nokia" phone. I have gotten more compliments than jokes about my name. It can also be a conversational topic for those who are subject to only hearing european names. Not many men share the'same name as I do. I think that it makes the name more distinct and thus makes It'special. Who wants to have a boring name that millions of other people share...
hi to all, my name is Nakia and as a child i was teased alot for having a girl's name but by the time i enter hig school girls started to say its pretty and it was good for conversation. but if anyone want to keep in touch with this Nakia you can add me to your my space list. nkali54 at live dot com.
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.
I love my name. I'am 31 years old and people try and try to say my name and some times its funny to watch them. and yes some can get it right away. and then i have the ones that can not say it for there life. its a good ice braker. yes people call me NOKIA or KIA some times NAK even NICK. but the bottom line is that i love my name thank you

Its my daughter's name. She is part Japanese and part African-american. We pronounce it nah-kee-uh. In Japan , her grandparents pronounce it nack-kee-uh. It's kanji charache's nah (leaf) ki (hope) a (asia). I referred to it as "a leaf of hope for asia" but thats reading too much into it!! (-;
HI'my name is Nakia, I'm male 29 years old. And I is the one and the only one in Indonesia who carrying this name. But I'm proud with my name, thanx to my parents who gave me this name. So many people in my Country oftenly miss spelling my name Nakia with Nokia. Ha...ha...ha... that's funny.
I love my name! Most people pronounce it correctly, but need help with spelling it. I have only come accross one other Nakia in my life, also female. I was told that Nakia means "long light time" or summer.
Yeah...my name is steven, and it gets spelled stephen all the freakin time. and they pronounce it wrong its like...its S.T.E.V.E.N how hard is it to pronounce that?
Hi everyone..My name is also "Nakia". I was named by my aunt after a movie entitled 'Nakia'. When I was younger I didn't like my name because I didn't know anyone else with the'same name as mines. When I got in middle school, I realized there were a lot more Nakia's than I had ever expected. I feel trully unique to have this name and I beli've it fits me well(smilin). I have a beautiful heart and I'm always receiving praise for it. God bless us Nakias.
Hi, my name is Nakian prounounced (Nik~ean) I was born in 1986 as well as a few othe's, here! Because I am a female my parents added the (n) on the end for a feminine feel. I was told and have found that my name derived from Egyptian and African roots meaning Purity,, Power, Stren'th, and Faith... What's in a name? Everything! I love mine... I am told that it is Beautiful on a daily basis! I do have the nickname of "Nikki" with some of my childhood friends and even some family members!!!
my name too is NAKIA... actually its Nakia MaLynn lol. everyone calls me a transformer because i am named like both the car and the phone. alot of people miss spell my name. most spell it nikia actually funny story my great gma still to this very day spells my name NIKIA. and substitutes at school call me NUH-KY-UH so annoying but i love my name and have 3 cousins by marriage with the'same beautiful name, but i wouldn't change it for the world even if there is 5,500 in the world lol :)))))) so no one else name your child that lol jk :))
My name is Nakia Ard. Obviously different. I didn't like my name until high school b/c it made me stand out. I didn't know it could be a boys name until i actually met a dated a guy with the'same name'spelled the'same way. Weird, huh? but i've grown to like it, and i don't have a nickname yet. i just make sure people who meet me, know how to say it. I'mean, do I'mess up your name? It's really easy, 5 letters. Sound it out!!! But i hate for someone to just chalk it up and call me Nikki. Other than that, no worries.
Hey guys my name is spelled Nickeya, and like all of you it has been pronouced all different ways:).... How funny is it when you meet someone with the'same name as you because it is so rare. Im in search to fine the meaning tho.. I have one that'says its egyptian and another indian..I'm wanting to know EVERYTHING about my name(personality, ect.) but cant seen'to find a site.

IM NATIVE AMERICAN AND MY MOTHER TOLD ME I GOT MY NAME FROM A NATIVE AMERICAN MAN(NOT FUNNY).ACTUALLY I WAS SHOCKED IT WAS WEIRD AT FIRST THEN I ADJUSTED. ALL OF YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT, PEOPLE DO TEND TO MISPRONOUNCE NAKIA. BUT ITS A BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE NAME THAT REFLECTS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT
my name is nakia. and people ususally can't pronounce it right

I AGREE WITH THE LAST NAKIA...PEOPLE ALWAYS SPELL MY NAME NIKIA...ALSO, MY NICKNAME IS "KIA" WHICH, IN MY OPINION, IS THE PERFECT NICKNAME FOR NAKIA...BUT PEOPLE JUST ASSUME THAT MY NICKNAME IS NIKKI, WHICH IS A NICKNAME FOR NICOLE I ALWAYS THOUGHT...I GET UPSET BECAUSE MY SISTer's NAME IS NIKKI
My Name is Nakia and itoriginates from a Movie in 1986. It was a Indian movie and the title of the movie was...Nakia. He was the Chief Indian. I don't like it when people call me Nikki either. My friends call me Na (like Ma)
I'm a female also born in 1987. My mom let her friend name me and i don't know where she got it from. But i have researched and found that in Arabic it means "Pure", Egyptian for Pure/Faithful, in Greek and Russian it means Unconquered or unconquerable, It's a type of japanese flower i think, and It's also a native american name (i can't remember what tribe) for "I'm not going to tell" It took me a while to realize that "I'm not going to tell" was the meaning, and not just somebody keeping a secret about the name origin. I used to hate the name because all my friends had "normal" names like Beth and Christina and i prefered to be called Nikki. But when i got older i realized how special and unique it is and I LOVE IT. I'm actually a little sad to see so many of you have the name. But at least we're all unique together. :)
Im Nakia born on may 2nd 2007 love our name....people can't say it....people and spell it.....but i fell in love with our name when i had a doll name Nakia...spelled just like our name!
I'm a guy and my name is Nakia. It's Egyptian. It means "pure/faithful". I asked my mom where she got it from and her only response was.... "it was the 70's". lol
Hello to all the Nakia's out there! I'm also a Nakia pronounced (Na-Kee-Ya) and I am female. I was born in 1986 and my mother got the name from the TV guide (it was an old Navajo movie) and I get several great comments of how pretty the name is but people seem to never'spell or pronounce it correctly but I am cool with it.
I am a girl from the black community. The name Nakia has several meanings: Greek:Unconquered, unconquerable Russian: Unconquered, unconquerable The Arabic name Nakia means - pure Also means obedient and precious.
My name is Nakia also..I am 32 years old and have meet a few people with the name..mostly guys, recently I'meet a guy named Nakia, same age and everybody around us was wowed! Often my name is mispronounced or mispelled so I am called by my nickname "Nikki". It's funny that'some people often consider the name "ghetto" when It's actually an Indian name..ignorance huh..
WELL, MY NAME IS NANETTE AND EVERYONE MAKE FUN OF ME COUSE DANETTE THE DESERT?? AND EVERYONE SING The'sONG, AND TEAChe's THE FIRST TIME THEY READ IT THEY SAY IT WRONG, OR WORST THEY SAY MY SECOND NAME, BECAUSE I LIVE IN MEXICO, SO THer's NO OTHER NANETTE IN MY STATE...OR I GUESS IN MEXICO...OR COULD BE. WELL THATS MY STORY
Actually there are more Nikia's in the world like myself. the name'shortened is just Nikki or kia. And often people mispronounced or spell my name Nakia which in my opinion comes from just being lazy in with the tongue.
I have a friend named Nakia! She is female though....
I'm also named Nakia born 2005 female. My mom got my name from my older brother. At first I hated my name cause everybody pronounced me as Nikaa or Nikki, but after a few years I learned to love my name casue it makes me unique and its a beautyful name to be called, and It'suits better as a girls name then boys.
MY NAME IS NAKIA AN, I LIKED SO MUCH BECAUSE ANYBORY AF THIS NAME, I LIVE IN PANAMA WE SPEAK SPANICH NAKIA IS A BEATUFUL NAME BECAUSE IS DEFRENTS
I am a mom of a Nakia, he's a man now seeing that he was born in 1986, I was watching the'same program. I love the nane
Wow this is so neat! I am a Kecia born June 25 1976. My mother got my name from the'same model. I pronounce it Kee sa . Sometimes Kee see ah. I get Kacey, Keysha etc. Glad to know there are othe's out there like me. What is the origin of the name? How did the model pronounce her name?
Heya. Im called Nakia to, People often pronaunce it NA-Kiy-Ya. But its pronaunced Ni-kia. I think its beautiful and all my friends want it lol. my best mates mam called her new daughter nakia! My mother'said it means pure and faithful!
My eldest Sister was pregnant in 1986 and she named hEric first child (she only has two) a girl Nakia. We watched that cop drama on tv about an American Indian named Nakia. We all thought it was a pretty name for a girl.
I'm a Nakia too! I never really liked my name until recently...now that I'm older. I'm actually doing a search (as I type)of the meaning of my name. My mother had me in Dearborn Michigan...and met a woman who was having a girl as well. One had the name Nakia...and the other had Simone. So they both decided to name both of their girls Nakia Simone. i've always loved my middle...but like alot of y'all say "people seem to love it..and think It's unique. I was born in 75.
My name is Nakia and I am a guy. My mom was watching a television show and a Indian cop had the name Nakia. She'said she fell in love with the name and thats how it became my name. Most people I'meet thinks it is a female name but as I got older I realized it could go either way. I know about four other guys with the name.Most people pronounce it incorrectly so I have to correct them.
Although some people struggle with the pronunciation "Na-ki-a", all agree that It's a very pretty name.
I was born in 1996... love my name. I'll meet a nakia every great while, but while living in vegas, i used to meet people from different countries who used to tell me what my name meant. (Indian=standing tall) russian=clean. Egypt=pure & faithful. And i learned a few othe's by reading above. Atleast it means something good in every language..lol
Everyone think this is just the most prettiest name and I use to hate it now I love it
My name is Nakia. I was born in 1989. 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.
Hi! I was born in 1992. I always hated my name until i got to high school and I'met other people with it. I always love hearing of guys with the name
Hello to all the Nakia's in the world! My name is Nakia I am a female. I was born in 1996 and I absolutely adore my name. As I was growing up I ran into a few Kia's from Akia,Lakia and Makia just to name a few. now how odd was that? lol i've never known a Nakia until I'met this guy in High school. I surely can say that the meaning of our name is so true.
Hello to all the NAKIA's my name is also NAKIA, and i really love the name.I was born in 1997 I really do not see to many people with the'same name especially here in south Louisiana. MY mom originally wanted to name me Brittany, then she relized how many Brittanys' already exist so that is how I ended up with the beautiful nake NAKIA
My name is NAKIA and I love it. People try to call me Nikki and I hate that. My family calls me kiki, and friends just call me kia.
I get, "oh like the phone?", am like..umm yeah, but with an "a". I tell people my name, and they say, "nikki?, nakih?,etc..." So, I just start telling people to call me Nick sometimes. As far as the "girl name goes", People tend to think It's a girl name because of the'sound "kia" at the end, or should I say "ia".
Heyy I'ma nakia but I'ma girl I had no idea there where boys named nakia. Cool
People say my mother must of wanted a girl when she had me. But other than that everyone else compliments me. I like it
About the KML convertor .It uses the color from red to blue (or whtvaeer colors you select) but at middle altitude it uses too much white, and It's skips yellow, orange and green. i think the visual effect wold be more powerful if the track color would pass from red to blue, through orange, yellow, and green. (like in Naviter'see You)VA:F [1.9.20_1166]
my name is Nakia and i was born in 1987. So I beli've the chart to be correct. My parents first heard of the name from a TV show "Nakia" The main character was a male and his name was Nakia. Google it. To the other comment i guess a man like me.
LOL. I love my name! I have meet over 170 other people with the name Nakia. I was born in 1986 and I am a male. There is a group on Facebook called 'The Nakia Experiment'. Interacting with so many Nakias, It's like having a new family.
Hi, My name is Nikia too...I live in Australia and was born in 1994! My Mum's older'sister actually named me, and I'm so glad she did as i absolutely love my name...It's so unique and rare, especially here! I have not actually come across another Nikia but i know there was a girl named after me....I am constantly told how beautiful and gorgeous of a name it is and most oftenly by complete strangers!! It rocks!!
my name is nakia and i do not know people with the'same name as me. but when in was little there was a whole theme of dolls named nakia. that's cool i guess. umm. people do pronounce my name wrong and spell it wrong but i sometimes let it ride but all my froends correct people for me.
Wow this is so inter'sting my name is Nekia (nek-eye-a). It's long i. I was born in detroit in 1987, and would like to think as one of the originators of the name. My mom always told me it was african swahili for beautiful, and definintely inherited the nickname Nikki from family and friends who found it difficult to remember. I never thought about my name much, until i got older and saw a lot of younger kids with my name and met a couple of males with my name also. Even'though i've had to correct more than a few people with the pronunciation and spelling, I really love my name and feel really special about having it
Hello, my name is Nikia! Wow their are so many of us out there. I love it. i've also had the problem with people mispronouncing my name, he he. I'm a little younger, i was born in 2002. I think my father chose my name from the movie too. It's crazy to think that for the last decade i've been under the impression that this particular name meant rainbow. I definately like pure and faithful a lot better.:) I forgot to mention that I'm a girl. i've never heard of this name being used for a male. I guess we all learn something new every day. Hope you all embrace your name and enjoy life to the fullest! - Nikia AKA ki-ki
My name is Nakia as well. I was born in 1989. My mom also got my name from a character in a movie. So many people mispronounce it by calling me Nakita. It drives me crazy. I love the name. I have met many people throughout my life with the name, mostly girls and one boy.
People spell my name wrong and pronouce it wrong all the time i gets on your nerve after'some time
I am actually a girl and my name is Nakia. It's pronounced nah-kee-uh and people mispronounce my name ALL the time. Most people pronounce it nack--kee-uh. I don't meet many other people with this name and if I do It's a usually in the black community. My parents found it in a book of Native American names. It's suppose to be a man's name meaning morning star. Hope this helps! Nakia Youtz, Elizabethtown, PA
I completely agree with all of the comments. People are constantly spelling and pronouncing my name wrong. I didn't even know that it was also a male name. I have met 4 other nakia's but only 1 was spelled just like mine. I would like to know the real definition because all i found was:pure and faithful. Not that I'mind that definition.
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.
I'm a female Nakia and thought I'd share the origin and meaning I know. Of course it is all hearsay but i've heard it from quite a few people. Origin: Navajo Meaning: Fire Generally the name was for males. My mom heard it on a piolet TV show that aired in the mid seventies, the'show was called Nakia. The lead character was a Native American cop....
Hello to all of the Nakia's on this post and the Nakia lovers...lol!! Nakia is my name as well. I too, was named by my great-aunt who watched the mini-series "Nakia" on TV..I was born in January 1987!! Our name is beautiful and i've always been in love with it!! Peace and Many Blessings to you all! We should have a Nakia convention!! It's warranted!!!
Hey kia's im Nakia too. pronounced Nah.key.a but never'said that way lol. My native american background inspired my mom to name me after the Tribe Chief. Or so it is told. Ive always wanted to know where the name came from and It's meaning. im female from brooklyn new york 21
I spell my name N'keeyah. Teache's and alot of other mispronounce my name. I get called Kneisha and Nkya. I have never met anyone with my name. I love my name. It helps me stand out
Hi all.... My name is Nikia, i was born 1999 and was always sick of telling people how to pronounce my name or spell it, now i just find it funny, by habit i just usually same my name, and then spell it right afterwards. Now that I am an adult, I love me name, it is so unique, and i never realized that there was more of us around! I also thought it was just a female name though:) Whenever I'meet someone, they absolutly love it, and wondering what origin it was and what it meant. Now my mother thought it was Native American, and since my father was native, It'suited perfect. I have found different meanings, including Standing Tall, Pure and Faithful, and Brave Warrior... And when i think of myself, Nikia suits me pretty good. :)
My name is spelled Nakeya. According my mother'she was watching a movie about an Indian boy in the 70's, she happened to be pregnant with me and she liked the name'so that's what I was named. 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.
hey.. my name is spelled NaKia. my name was gonna be nia but my dad wanted my nickname to be ki-ki, hence the name NaKia. this name has been associated with the meanings "pure" and "faithful". cant wait until i can find my name on a keychain at disney world! lol

My mother was going to name me Kiana, but my sister did not like it. So, my mom swithched the letters and named me Nakia. i've heard so many different meaning of Nakia, but all compliment the individual I am.
My name is na'keya and im so glad that ive come across this site bc i never liked my name bc i didnt know where it originated. If it is true that it is derived from indians, it makes my long journy of wondering who i am complete. Whats amazing to me is that im indian and black! i too have the nickname keya!

I WROTE THE NAME ON A PIECSE OF PAPPER AND SAVED IT/ WHEN MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN ON DEC 25 1986 I NAME HER NAKIA. HER FRIENDS CALL HER KIA FAMILY CALL HER NAKIA SHE LOVES LOVES HER NAME. HER CHILDREN NAMES ALL BEGIN WITH A ( n ) MY SON CHILDREN NAMES ALSO BEGIN WITH A ( n ) DOROTHY B TALLADEGA AL
My name is Nakia and i have the'same problem with the phone jokes and the car. Most people can pronounce it right and spell. Me personally think it is an alright name. But it doesn't fit me
HI'my name is "Nakia" and i am 10 yrs old people usally think Nakia is not a real name they think is is Nikia adleast thats what people call me when'they see my name
I too have had people make the Nokia joke...a very dry and lame joke I'might add. But,I like my name and most people who meet me like it as well. People have definately spelled my name incorrectly in the past. However, as the name has become more popular in recent years, thats not really a problem any more.
LIKE MOST OThe's I AM A FEMALE WITH THE NAME NAKIA. MY MOM GOT IT FROM A TV SHOW IN THE 70'S. I WAS BORN IN 1986, I HAVE NEVER PERSONALLY MET ANYONE WITH MY NAME. I DO HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ASK ME ABOUT THE NAME, I ALSO HAVE LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO TELL ME WHERE THEY HAVE HEARD MY NAME. THE MOST INTer'sTING, ONE OF MY CLIENTS WHO IS FROM ISRAEL SAYS MY NAME IS VERY SPECIAL IN HER COUNTRY..BUT WHO REALLY KNOWS. I JUST LIKE THE FACT THAT MY MOM PICKED IT AND WHERE SHE GOT IT FROM IT IS A BOYS NAME.
My name is Nekia. My mother used to watch a television show that aired for only a year in the early 70s about a Native American man named "Nakia". She thought the name was so beautiful and decided to make it more feminine by spelling it "Nekia". I love my name and yes, people call me "Nikki", "Nik". I just hate when people call me "Kia".
A LOT of people spell my name wrong! They spell it Nikia or Niikia. It is spell NAKIA! My friends always ask me how to spell it. One of my friends call me Nokia or they'll say No Kia! My mom says that'she got my name from a song. I could've been named Kahlen, but my mom was going to go with Nakia. Some of my family members call me Kiki or Kia. I really like this name Nakia. It's not really common, that's what I like about it!
I'm also Nikia born in 1986 . My mom also had took the name from the tv show . i've met so many Nikia's same and different spellings male and female. I LOVE my name
alo augusto como estas ai deca onde estou falo como uma coisa de argumento de alergia e na paixao de amro ato alergia
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 Aken'ten(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.
nakia is my name and i can relate to being called "nokia" and "kia". people find it funny to relate the name to different things because It's not very common. after 25 years with this name, It's not so funny to me any more. i've even been called nautica and nike. my name is pronounced: na (the 'a' sounds the'same as in car) ki (like key) a (like uh)
I'm a girl with the name Nakia, and well as many people that think It'sounds like the phone Nokia I think that the thing that peevs me off the most is when people pronounce my name Nikia. I know its a small detail but thats what bothe's me, my name isnt Nikia its Nakia and I'm proud of my name!
I also was born in 1987 and got my name from the tv show. I am male and I love the fact that I do not share a common name with the rest of society. I get more compliments than negative comments about my name. However, I have no problem correcting those who need it. One thing you don't do is disrespect someones name. I dont need a nickname because my name is unique enough. NAKIA is a pretty cool name and I'm proud to have it.
My name is "Nakia" (Nah-kee-ya). I was named after my aunt when I was born in 2009. People spelled and my name wrong. I'met 3 other people with the'same name as me and they're spelled differently. I love my name and its unique prenuciation.
I havent met anyone with the'same name as mine, NAKIA, i dident even know it was that popular of a girls name until i looked on here, but i also and only 17, and still could find someone with the'same name. My mom said she liked Nakita or something like that, which means sun, in native american, ( i am half oneida) but she just called me Nakia instead. But i LOVE my name!
My daughter, Nakia, was born in 1996.. I got the name from a Native American movie, Nakia, A Brave Woman. I would love to find this movie as gift to my daughter.
My name is spelled NAKIA people usually call me nikki,kiki,kia or nokia lol. People unfamiliar with my name usually pronounce it na-kia which I hate. % hsve yet to meet someone with my name and I'm kind of surprised there are many people with my name. I would love to find the meaning of it tho
I never was a fan of my name but people always say how pretty it is----I am glad to know it has a beautiful meaning!
We named our eight month old Jasiah because we love the biblical meaning of the name. He along with four other children, is our blessing from God.
Yes, people always spell it wrong. The correct way to pronounce it is 'uh-less-ee-uh'. Have never met anyone with the'same name.
My name is Nakia. I have only had one person pronounce it correctly. Na-KI-uh (long i) But I always get compliments on it.
I'm sure its a girls name, egyptian meaning pure, faithful.
I am from Baltimore, Maryland and my name is Nakia. I also pronounce it Nah- kee -uh. I find tha people from england pronounce it nack-ee-uh. I am happy I found this site because never new my name had meaning
Hello to all, My name is Nakia as well and I was born in 1987. 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. Any how, luckily I did not arrive on time and my grandmother enjoyed watching a TV movie by the name "Nakia". She feel in love with the name. Lucky me.
People often mispronounce and misspell it. They often call me NOKIA or NIKIA. Most people compliment me and ask about my and the name's origin.
I named my oldest son Nakia..I was 17 when he was born .I always said my first born would have a native name..and yes like many of you or your parents he was named after the Native deputy back in 1987 he is 33 today and very proud of his name and heritage
I was born in 1996, 10 years after the'show. I am also a female Nakia. I love my name because it is different. I have heard that in cherokee (I think) culture it means wise. I am curious to know other meanings of the name.
My name is also Nakia (pronounced with a long "i" sound, in the Native American Indian culture, not an "ee" sound. The name "Nakia" has different origins and sounds. In addition, in the Indian culture, it can be used for males or females. I like my name a lot, but people usually misprounce it.
OMG, I did not know some there was someone who spelled their name like mines, naikeya, i definitely thought I was the only "nakia" to spell my name like, naikeyea
Hey! I'm a female ad my name is also Nakia and I think is one of the most unique names I have ever herd. I really don't think It's fot for a boy though.
My name is Nikia, and I actually always hated the name. I'm female, born May 28, 2011, 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.
Once, long time ago, in the early 70's, I watched some program on T.V in Zimbabwe with an actor in it called Nakia. Since then I always wanted a son called Nakia, but my wife didn't like that name for our son. So I bought a German Sheppard and I called him by that name. We were all happy.
Hi!! I'm Nikia! Also named after a tv show told it was a Native American male detective. I am female, I was born 1986. I have found Greek meaning Victory and Native meaning First.

i pronounce my na-kee-a. most people mispronounce it, but i've kinda gotten used to it. i haven't met anyone with the exact name but close. i had a friend who's name is nikkia. i know there was a tv show called "Nakia" in the 70's. i love my name i think it is very unique. people always say "oh i love your name." or they say "what a pretty name that it is." i don't think nakia is a girl name i got info from a friend that alot of Native American men have the name nakia. THANKS FOR READING------ NAKIA L. C., Central Fla.
HI'mY NAME IS NAKIA I AM A 19 YEAR OLD FEMALE.AT FIRST I HATED THE NAME BECAUSE IT WAS ALWAYS MISPRONOUNCED BUT I FELT GENUINE WITH THE NAME BUT TO SEE ALL THESE PEOPLE WIT THE NAME IT KINDA PI**ES ME OFF!
My Name is Nakia and I love it. I actually have met several other females with the'same name. People often spell my name NIKIA or Nokia and I hate it. I also agree with the Nakia who said that people always assume that the nickname for Nakia is Nikki. I hate that. My friends always call me "Kia" for short.
Now I know who the brainy one is, I'll keep lkooing for your posts.
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!!
HI'my name is Nakia Quintana and I'm a female. With the last name like that you would think I was latina but I'm as black as the night. I love my name because for a person like me it couldn't be any more original! :-)
HI'my name is Nakia. I too disliked my name as a child. I was born in 1986 after a man on a tv series. Although, I am a female. She loved the name Nakia. People mis pronounced my name even'the teache's. I would say just call me Nikki because I thought I was the only Nakia. As the years went by I began to love my name. It feels great to no that a lot of us felt the'same about our name.
People often mis-spell my name like this: Nakeya, Nakiah. But the memory that'sticks out the most is in 5th or 6th grade my teacher had a "Nakia(me) and a Takiah. Oh boy was she ever confused. Oh how about this my brother's god-sister is named Lakiyah
Hello to all! I'm a female born in 1986 with the name NAKIA! I love my name it was once rare here in Florida. I have met several nakia's male and female. My mom to said she got my name from a show she had seen. I love my name and I get a lot of compliments. Thanks mom for my name! Lol

Wow...to whom who left the comment on May 31, 2019(Pipi Longstalkings)...what a coincidence! My Beautiful Baby girl was born that day at 4.42pm and my wife and I named her ANNIKA! After we named our precious angel, we later found out that my wife was to be named ANNIKA when she was born! I just feel its a Beautiful name and Im proud to name my ANNIKA! Prehaps she'll be a famous one one day!
