Nouv, is a British perjorative term, an abbreviation of Nouveau Riche, to describe people who ostentatiously display their newly acquired wealth in the most tacky obvious ways - like adding large porticos to a bungalow or parking their new 4x4 in the street not their garage. Tacky, bad taste, more money than sense, cant handle the wealth. the opposite of "Old Money"
The new neighbours were Nouvs, they painted their dustbins in gold leaf and installed porticos on the dog kennel
