History of Nerva, Utah
Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)

NERVA

Nerva Junction (Box Elder) was a siding on the Union Pacific Railroad, three miles south of Willard. In 1915, area farmers asked the railroad to build the siding for the local sugar beet industry. At first the railroad refused, thinking they had a lot of nerve in asking for it. Eventually the siding was built, but the railroad named it Nerva to express their feeling about the project.
