"We are adopting a baby boy and want to name him "Nico" but I am getting tepid responses from the people in my family. The name is too uncommon for them, and they do not get that uncommon is freaking awesome -- especially when the name is so sexy and will make him stand out when he is older. I was grateful to read all the comments on this site. I am even more confident than ever in the choice of name. Thanks." Nov. 2, 2015:

"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." Jan. 8, 2013:

"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'." Jul. 8, 2006:
"Everyone pronounces it right, and it is the best name i have EVER heard in my life. He gets lots of compliments on how wonderful of a name it is, and it really isn't a very popular name, and it doesn't seem to be going up. I think this would be a great name for a little boy." Jun. 26, 2005:
