    Hello. Welcome to Android Central.

    Try Nova settings - Desktop - Label Icons.

    Crikey! I don't know.

    I would save your Nova settings, uninstall and try again. Then don't save and try to start from scratch.
    But I would prefer other opinions here.

    Now that you've registered, why not ask in the S5 forum as well, and in Android Central Community - Introductions. Some Ambassadors of the site there. http://forums.androidcentral.com/introductions/

    You could wipe the cache partition in Recovery mode, but I'm not sure it will help.
    You may get better responses here later.

    Try to change the drawer grid to the standard 5x4. If that doesn't help post your Nova drawer settings and we could try to find where the problem is.

    Just a quick note. All the settings we are talking about are under Nova settings - Drawer (not desktop).

    Sure. I thought just the icon labels were missing, which are in the Desktop setting in Nova.
    Thanks for your help. I was just getting the ball rolling and know little about launchers.

    It was just to avoid confusion. The same "label icons" setting is in the desktop and in the drawer section.

    "Label icons" in the drawer is unchecked.

    If the screen (drawer or desktop) is too dense, the labels on the icons, while they're actually there, can be overwritten by the apps under them.

    So you may turn on labels, but the drawer density (12X12?) could be so high that they don't show.

    I just did a quick test and managed to replicate your problem. It's the drawer grid. Change to 5x4 as I said before and the problem will be fixed.

    Nova settings - Drawer - Drawer app grid.
