Not a Novel Name


The latest weird name I've come across, given to a kid at the dentist's, is Novella. The first three letters are pronounced as in "nova", rather than "novel". At first, I thought her mother was saying "No, Bella" but latter she asked at the receptionist when Novella's next appointment would be.

It's probably a common girl's name in some part of the world that I've just insulted by my ignorance of it.
