If I start a new IRA (actually a ROTH IRA) today and I fund it before April 15th with $2000 can I nominate this contribution as a 1999 contribution?

Yes, but make sure you write on the check something like "1999 Contribution". That way it is clear what year the contribution is for. You want to be able to make your 2000 contribution as well. :o)
