A nova is called nova as it is some kind for a new beginning on a star,
a new and higher shining. Is a beautyful name, but some can think that
stars that shine double live half :) . But i vote for it. 

Eberybody remember Cartago Nova here on Spain, the big Roman emplacement
2200 years ago, actually called, Cartagena.
