My favorite Boy's Name
written by Nicole From Greensboro,NC, January 01, 2008
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!!!
My son....

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.

I'm thankful 4 my mother and grandparents 2 name me Nicholas. It's a good name and has a good meaning.
I love 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.

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.

I named my son after my grandfather, I love the name nicholas, however since it is a common name I changed the spelling a little, my sons name is spelled Nykolas :)

I named my son Nicholas. I went with the traditional spelling, so it would be easier in school and such. I think it is a very strong manly name. Especially when shortend to Nick.

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.
My Baby Boy - Nikolaos
written by Anastasia, October 02, 2009
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.
