My name is Nicholas and I hate It'so much. It just sounds so snobby and upper-class and I hate it! That's why I prefer to be called Nick. All the adults and stuck-up snobs at school call me Nicholas which sets an example for everyone else to call me that. It makes me seem like a rich snob. I hate my name.

01/06/2024 22:08:24

12/22/2023 16:32:32

I like this name and even like the added nickname Nick that come with it normally. I wonder if that is where the term "NICK" name came from. I think I might name my son that but with my name being Nicole I don't know if there be a conflict of a NICK and a NIKKI!!!

12/21/2023 08:30:30

12/04/2023 00:39:20

is named Nicholas. I had this name picked out 8 yrs earlier when I had my daughter, and Nicholas wouldn't work for her. Anyway, he was born during the 12 days of Christmas, so I thought it was perfect. He likes the fact that his patron saint is St. Nicholas.

11/30/2023 17:53:36

I have a friend called Nicholas, he has shortened his name to Nic, no K you notice, he wanted to be different ha ha!!

He has tons of energy and is always happy and has the best personality ever. I think Nicholas is a great name and makes an good impression on people.

11/13/2023 15:19:50

It's a very versatile name which I first enjoyed from "Eight is Enough." 15 years later I named my one and only son Nicholas.

We named our son Nicholas 13years ago and the name really suits him. I love the fact that as a child he can be called Nicholas but as an adult his name can change to Nic which I believe is a "big boys" name. I see a successful mature man when I think of Nic. Great name.

07/13/2023 02:34:46

Nicholas is a really cool name. i've had it for 16 years now and haven't had any problems apart from one! People calling me "nicky" lol. Really don't like it but probably personal preference!

07/11/2023 01:12:22

My name is Nicholas; my sister named her younger'son Nicholas after me as well. Very few people can get away with calling me "Nick" however. I think shortening it is a tragic thing to do to such a wonderfully classic, strong name.

07/09/2023 10:07:08

Nicholas is a name to be very proud of and it in time will give my son confidence and structure in his life a name to be proud of and respectful

01/04/2023 15:31:50

My oldest grandchild is named Nycholas. His nick name is Nyc, which his Mom and Dad call him. His younger sister is named Nyah. Their mom is expecting another girl in June, 2010 and is searching for a name starting with "N-y". We are of Celtic/Irish orgin. Any ideas for them❤️❤️ I love Nycholas' name. It suits him!!

12/05/2022 01:06:08

We named our son Nicholas. It's a strong name for a boy and we call him Nico as a nickname. The challenge will be, when he goes to school, for people NOT to call him Nick.

12/04/2022 21:52:10

I named my boy Nicholas back in 92. I love the name even now. When he was 10 he exclusively started going by "Nick" which I knew would probably happen. The one thing I have noticed is that anyone else with the name of Nick or Nicholas seems to be a very busy boy with tons of energy and full of pranks and a bit of "devil" in them.

11/26/2022 23:08:08

I absolutely love my son's name (victory of the people), very powerful name. We call him Niko, but his name is Nikolaos, not Nicholas.. We are Greek on both my side and my husband's side, 100%. Niko's name with his middle name is Nikolaos Andreas, and he sure suits it.

11/24/2022 11:46:12

my real name is nicholas but i go by nick just because its very proud of my name and where it comes parents did a good job naming me

11/18/2022 09:07:10

I have a brother named Nicholas. Nobody pronounces it wrong and spelling Isn't an issue. When he was in first grade, he wanted people to only call him Nicholas. Then he tried to write it, and he decided to be called Nick. lol

11/16/2022 23:54:36

About a month before I had my son I finalized his name. I never told anybody his full name (he has 5 names including his last name). NIKOLAS SCOTT LAZARUS BAILEY plus his last name. I just fell in love with the name. It suits him perfectly. We call him Nik though. He's a year and a half and he'll tell you his name is Nik.

11/14/2022 10:29:14

It's a wonderful name. i've liked it all my adult life and recommended it to a friend for her new son. And she named him Nicholas! Yay!

10/08/2022 19:45:34

I prefer to go by Nick, other than that It's a pretty nice name. Someone once spelled my name "Nic" instead of "Nick". People mistake it for "Dick" or something.

09/19/2022 03:28:48

My husband and I really enjoyed Nick and Nora from the Thin Man movies from the 1930's and named our oldest son, born 2002, Nicholas. I had trouble when he was younger with people (both adults and other children) trying to call him Nicky. I just couldn't see him as an adult being called Nicky so we would just say that we preferred Nick. As a teenager, he's really happy we did.

09/08/2022 05:55:08

I named my son this and I used,to always watch nickolodeon as a kid. I didn't make the conbection til later. I wanted to name him xavier but so many kids around that time has the name. So its nicholas xavier...

09/08/2022 00:02:28

The name Nicholas dos not sound good to me. Now the name Reid dos!!!

07/23/2022 15:38:06

My grandmother(Olga)pasted away when I was 16 and she was truly my best friend. She was born and lived in Greece till she was 30, then married a american in the service and came to the states. My mother was born on the way in Turkey. I love the fact that I was able to name both my children in honor of my grandmother's heritage. I named my daughter Alexandra and my son Nicholas. I know she would have loved it. --love you grandma and can't wait till the day we see each other again.

07/19/2022 10:04:12

I named my son Nicholas, but am frustrated when people call him Nicky. I really don't like Nicky as a nickname, I prefer Nicholas or Nick.

07/11/2022 15:24:36

My husband and i named our newborn son Nicholas. We wanted something classic, and with my husband's name being Rick, Nick was the next best thing to junior.

05/16/2022 00:38:06

We named our some Camden after the Camden Family on "7th Heaven" (one of my favorite shows)...I also think It's a great name for a girl too.

04/10/2022 09:06:36

I am Nicholas LI'm, and have always loved my name, except my middle name which no one ever heard of when I was younger. but now LI'm is more popular than Nicholas ever was! Everyone in my family calls me Nicky, which I hated when I was a certain age. Almost no one has ever called me Nicholas, except one girlfriend (I loved to be called Nicholas by her) and my parents when I was in trouble...which was often. People in fiction and life named Nick or Nicholas are almost always inter'sting and energetic and popular. The best name ever...and Nick is the original nick name!

03/15/2022 23:43:12

its like nick carraway from great gatsby I HATE THAT BOOK

02/28/2022 22:17:42

A great name for a boy. Can also be shortened to Nick which is easier to say and spell.

02/12/2022 00:57:00

Ugh. My sister in law named her daughter Hadley and it makes me cringe almost as much as Riley on girls. Why do people do this to their children❤️

11/11/2021 20:28:48

If we have a baby boy in the future, we'll probably name him Nicholas.

11/05/2021 06:11:06

My "guy friend's" name is Nicholas. And I really like it. It can be formal-Nicholas or friendly-Nick. It's a multi-purpose name. And It's cute

08/05/2021 13:36:36

i've been "Nick" all my life. Now in my professional circumstances I'm beginning to prefer "Nicholas" since It'sounds much more mature and unlike a soap opera character.

07/10/2021 02:36:00

Nicholas is one of my best friends.No one pronounces it wrong but sometimes spells it wrong.Though his name is a boys name Nicholas looks like a girl!
