My son's legal name is Nicholas (after my dad's middle name), but we decided to call him Nico even before he was born. It'suits him so well. He is now a Sr. in HS, tall (6'3") and handsome and kind, athletic, smart and very spiritual. I found out after he was born, my 5-great Grandfather's name was "Nicola"...the male Italian version of Nicholas...It'still gives me goosebumps that I was so driven'to call him "nico" while I was pregnant! When he was in PreK 3, there was one other Nico in his class of 10 kids. he's never run in to another Nico since! Girls LOVE his name, lol.

I named my daughter Nico. She gets a lot of compliments on her name, mainly from those who are familiar with the Velvet Underground. However, many people assume the name is Japanese because we are of Asian descent. However, the name came from my father who grew up in Holland and is named Nico. I love how the name is even less common for girls. It'suits my beautiful little girl perfectly!

I call myself Nico, short for Nicolas (spelled in the French/Spanish way), though everyone shortens my name to 'Nic(k)' upon seeing it. The only other problem is that people spell it with a k or geminate k, though these are normal variants. I get lots of compliments on my name, people saying It's unique, though it comes from Nic(h/k)olas/Nicodemus, Greek for 'victory of the people'.
